First Thanksgiving in Satoshi Forest seeks Sponsors (cheap!)
Reference: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=329396.0 Relevant: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=329396.msg3543236#msg3543236 Please visit the link(s) above to get up to speed, but in essence we're seeking sponsors that have a Bitcoin related web presence. The amount seeking is only a US cent (penny) or higher, ideally at least a $1.25 USD donation is sought. The original goal was to raise at least $500 USD but, thanks to three fellow bitcoiners, we have surpassed that amount. Now, we only seek at least 9 more sponsors so that during the Thanksgiving feast to feed the local homeless at Satoshi Forest there would be plenty of signage on site to be photograph, thus giving sponsors unique exposure. We're not seeking any entities that may have fat wallets, for this is simply for you smaller outfits seeking exposure at a very reasonable price point. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask, whereupon I'll address them in a timely fashion. Here is Sean' Outpost's Bitcoin wallet address for all donations: 1M72Sfpbz1BPpXFHz9m3CdqATR44Jvaydd If you desire, please state what business entity you're representing here or on BitcoinTalk (follow the first link provided above) so that proper recognition is given, along with knowing what to place on the sign. Please provide a BlockChain tx for verification purposes. Jason King should be along shortly to approve this submission, so please wait for such for your protection. Thank you kindly, all, for at least taking the time to read this. Bruno Kucinskas a.k.a. TMIBITW

''' This is one of the oldest bitcoin only charities. Sean's Outpost. They help homeless people in Florida and have been around since 2014 or earlier. [link]1 Their facebook looks like they're still active. [link]2 I have nothing to do with them, only know that they've been around for a very long time in the bitcoin community. A video on their website talks about how bitcoin had gone all the way to $1k, but since then fallen back down to $700. I guess he's running from FL to CA right now to raise money and bitcoin awareness. Apparently, this isn't the first time he's done it.

Sent the 0.029 bitcoin I "stole" to Sean's Outpost
EDIT: Matt Miller just tweeted this!: Anyone know how to get in touch with Jason King or @SeansOutpost? We want to run a segment tomorrow, collecting #bitcoin for the cause Blockchain confirmation If you haven't heard, I "stole" a bit of bitcoin from Matt Miller's gift bitcoin certificate when a co-host on the segment he was on, ironically called "Street Smart", showed the private key of his bitcoin paper wallet. I took it because I knew that if I didn't someone else would. I let Matt know that I would return the amount to a new address but he just let me keep it and congratulated me for a job well done. I still wanted to send it back on live tv to show how fast Bitcoin is and to have a chance for others to send Bitcoin to a public key that Matt would then send to Seans Outpost. I don't think Matt will be doing this on national tv so I decided to just send the amount to Seans Outpost myself. Would have been nice to show not only the speed of bitcoin transactions on live national tv but also the generosity of the Bitcoin community. Nevertheless, I do applaud Matt for explaining the need for security when dealing with bitcoin private keys and acknowledging that I said I would send the money back, even if the news articles are portraying me as a "thief", "hacker" and "mugger". Let's hope they update their articles to include the donation to Seans Outpost!
u/SeansOutpost how are you? Don't forget to raise Bitcoin Cash for Seans' Outpost.
The same day, he makes a post to /bitcoin (archive) that garners 403 points and the sympathy and outrage of /bitcoin users. In the thread, it is revealed that SeansOutpost was not removed as moderator, despite also being quite inactive as a mod. When asked what he thinks of the censorship, SeansOutpost wrote: I don’t understand/agree with why we can’t talk about this like adults. I am not qualified to make a judgement on whether or not XT is the way to go. But at this point, it seems obvious blocksize has to go up. I’m not sure why we can’t openly discuss all options. Open discussion would seem to be in the spirit of what Satoshi wanted. He was shortly thereafter removed as a moderator.
[Please Sticky] Sean's Outpost: The Bitcoin Angel Tree
EDIT*** EVERYTHING IS FUNDED. TOOK LESS THAN 3 HOURS Hey Everyone, I’m not a religious person. But I do enjoy the opportunity to celebrate the holidays with my family. It’s a time of year to be thankful for all we have. Celebrate the people we hold dear to us. Eat, Drink, and be Merry. In the US it’s almost comical the displays of excess everywhere. People overindulging in celebratory exuberance. It’s fun. But not for everyone. For a large portion of the population, December is a reminder of how little they have and how few people actually care. There are spikes in Depression and Suicide in December every year. For a reason. Sean’s Outpost has been very fortunate this year. We have fed over 26,000 meals to the homeless in our area. But we know that man does not survive on food alone. Sometimes, all somebody needs is to know that someone else cares, just a little bit. We thought it would be a good time to spread some cheer. So we have been asking people what they wanted for Christmas. The results are staggering. Most people were dumfounded. They hadn’t celebrated the holidays or even thought about the concept of receiving a gift in years. A lot of them cried. And most were at a loss for something to ask for, because so many of these people are so humble. But we were able to compile the list. And I thought it would be cool to incorporate the concept of an “Angel Tree” with bitcoin. Not Angel with wings, Angel like investing. Because that’s what this is. This is investing in the mental wellbeing of another human. We thought it would be fun. So here’s the list. If you want to sponsor a gift, I will edit the list and strike that thru. Tis the season. Thank you all for such a wonderful 2013.

PSA The subreddit /r/bitcoin_lotto is a scam. Taking people's money under the impression it's for Sean's Outpost.
http://www.reddit.com/bitcoin_lotto/ I believe the user behind it is andyrowe , who is known for his get rich quick schemes, and looking at his comment history he claims to have created the subreddit. The subreddit has since restricted it's submissions. Andyrowe also entered the bitcoin lotto using unverified bitcoin tips (RES shows that the transactions never went through) here's a screenshot where he says he made it. http://imgur.com/lnoV7Yy Just thought I'd let people know since it's likely that more people will fall for it.
