The multiple good news in the Cardano world this week has been overshadowed by the tragic news of rising COVID-19 infections around the world especially in India. Despite the worldwide vaccine push, the world is currently in a losing battle with this disease and its multiple new mutations.
In answer to a fellow SPO’s call for help (Shweta of kBlocks), WISH Pool has decided to temporarily change our donation partner this month from educational scholarships. Instead, we have decided to donate to a local charity which assists in the India COVID Response.
We at WISH Pool are not from India nor do we have any strong ties with India nor do we share the same religion as most Indians. We are just a small pool with very little delegators but what we have are big hearts. Despite foreseeing that we will probably not mint any blocks in the near future, we still went ahead and donated. It is not much, but given our meager financial situation with hosting and maintenance expenses, this is already significant for us.
Please watch this short video about the India situation:
If you have it in your heart, please kindly follow our example and donate directly to charities in your locale that assist in the India COVID response. If you cannot find a reputable charity, you may want to use CHARIS Singapore for your donation through the link below:
Thank you for your support.
If you like this article, please consider delegating your ADA to WISH Pool. You will be earning interest rewards while indirectly helping the lives of disadvantaged children. This is because at WISH Pool, you get 100% of your usual rewards while we pledge to give at least 10% of our own profit to educational charities. In this way, successful students will be able to take their families out of poverty.
