Folks: I encourage you to donate to https://AirdropVenezuela.org .
First of all, every penny/satoshi/zatoshi you donate goes directly to a Venezuelan. This is the best way to help people, instead of sending them food, or shoes, or insulin or whatever because what if you send them food but they needed shoes or you send them shoes but they needed insulin? This way, you send them money, and they use it to buy whatever they need most. Free markets are the best humanitarian aid system humanity has yet devised.
If you think about it, sending money empowers the local shoe sellers and grocers and pharmacists. On the other hand, sending shoes and food and medicine drives the local shoe sellers, grocers, and pharmacists out of business.
Second of all, if you donate this way, they receive the currency that you donated e.g. ZEC, BTC, or USD. This is important because a big part of why these people are suffering is that their fiat currency — the Venezuelan Bolívar — has failed, taking with it both their savings and their ability to earn and to trade. By sending aid money in a better currency, you’re helping create an alternative for them and their communities.
I know the people behind it — the people who make up the company AirTM — and I trust them to do this honestly and professionally.
By the way, this is 100% legal in USA. The U.S. Treasury Department even wrote an entire FAQ to try to dispell myth that donating to needing Venezuelans is illegal. It’s completely legal.
They have a goal to raise $1,000,000 in order to help 100,000 individual Venezuelans. You can help right now! https://AirdropVenezuela.org
