We’re thrilled to announce our participation in Gitcoin Grants Round 19, an innovative platform for fundraising that is set to amplify our impact like never before. This is an opportunity not only for us to grow but also to deepen our commitment to combating climate change through our food rescue efforts.
What is Gitcoin?
Gitcoin is a revolutionary fundraising platform that leverages the power of cryptocurrency to support various projects. The unique aspect of Gitcoin is its use of quadratic funding, a democratic way of allocating funds to projects based on community support. The more individual contributions a project receives, the larger the portion of the matching funds it gets. This means that every single dollar you donate to Joy’s Kitchen has a significantly amplified impact.
Our Mission on Gitcoin
As part of this round, there’s an extra layer of excitement. Optimism, a collaborative entity, is generously matching $150,000 in donations to organizations that meet specific criteria. Our project aligns perfectly, focusing on climate solutions by reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs) through our food rescue operations. By participating in Gitcoin Grants Round 19, we are not just seeking funds; we are part of a movement towards sustainable and web3 climate solutions.
How Does Joy’s Kitchen Contribute to Climate Solutions?
Our mission at Joy’s Kitchen is intrinsically tied to climate action. We rescue surplus food, which, if wasted, contributes significantly to GHG emissions. By redistributing this food, we prevent it from ending up in landfills where it would decompose and release methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Our work not only feeds thousands of families but also actively reduces the environmental impact of food waste.
Quadratic Funding: Maximizing Your Impact
Now, let’s talk about quadratic funding – the secret sauce that makes your donations on Gitcoin even more powerful. This funding model is designed to democratize financial support, ensuring that the number of contributors matters more than the amount they contribute. This means that a donation of $1 is worth more than its face value because it helps us secure a larger share of the matching pool. Your small contribution can lead to a big impact!
How Can You Help?
Supporting us on Gitcoin is simple. Visit our project page at Gitcoin Joy’s Kitchen and contribute any amount in cryptocurrency. Remember, your contribution has a multiplied effect thanks to the quadratic funding model!
We are excited about this journey and the potential it holds. By participating in Gitcoin Grants Round 19, we’re not just raising funds; we’re joining a larger movement towards a more sustainable world.
Your donation, no matter the size, can create ripples of change. Let’s make a difference together, one donation at a time.
Together, we can #SaveFoodLovePeople and make a lasting impact on our planet.
Thank you for being a part of this exciting journey!
