We are looking for two tech geeks to help with research and training 2 staff members on how to use digital currencies (Bitcoins) for fundraising.This opportunity is available immediately and for 12 weeks although volunteer has the option to extend. Training and coaching will be online via email, hangout, Skype and Whatsapp.
Our organization has established an account with Coinbase, a web platform and we are accepting donations in Bitcoins. None of our team members understand the digital currency and how to seek out donations. The successful volunteer will be a teacher and consultant and would not engage in any fundraising. We want to engage people outside the current financial systems as supporters and donors to a worthy cause.
