A little bit of context: I send 10% of my profit (the tithe) to a church. Along with the tithe I send money for different projects.
I guess they can be considered donations. This church is a non-profit organization.
Recently I started to get profit in Bitcoin (weekly, I'm paid in Bitcoins for the work I do). It's not a small amount. Now, obviously, the next idea that came in mind was: how do I send the tithe now?
Since this non-profit does accept other currencies (such as EUR, USD etc) I think it would be a good reason to accept Bitcoin too. Currently it doesn't and I didn't talked to them about this.
I'm beginner in understanding Bitcoin, but I know the basics. Most of them are non-technical people and I believe it will be very hard for them to understand how this works. I have to admit I had a lot of questions I had to find answers for as well.
What would be the reasons I should present them to support my plan: sending Bitcoins to this non-profit?
Some things I have in mind:
- There are quite a few shops that do accept Bitcoins in our country.
- It's not controlled by the state or any organization (personally I find this pretty huge, for obvious reasons)
- Some other people send to this non-profit even things that are not money (e.g. they work with bees and they get a lot of honey, they can choose to send 10% to the church). I think this is a thing that will help them realize a little bit that Bitcoin is a value as well.
- Since they accept other currencies, why won't they accept Bitcoins too?
- Related to the previous one: if I'd convert my Bitcoins in other currencies (e.g. EUR), since the Bitcoin value is still changing quickly it won't be a stable thing for both parts
Are these good enough to start with? What others points should I present? Given the context, how can I explain them in simple words how this would help?
From my understanding, they will simply have to create a wallet and share an address with the world.
