A donation of 2671.56 levs generates the "Brotherhood of the Phoenix" Campaign, thanks to the BitHope Foundation.

The BitHope Foundation is the first Bulgarian non-governmental organization (NGO) in the public benefit that uses ONLY cryptocurrency to accumulate funds for the campaigns that are hosted on the BitHope.org platform. What the Foundation and the platform do is actually convert your bitcoins into tangible good for the people, animals, and the environment. Bitcoin does not discriminate on the basis of borders, religion, race, gender or social status, much like love and hope.

The "Brotherhood of the Phoenix" was one of the first campaigns involved in the project.

The aim of this campaign was to raise funds for safeguarding four of the most vulnerable nests in Bulgaria located in the Eastern Rhodopes and in Rusenski Lom. The funds will cover the travel expenses of the volunteers – to reach the nests and the travel budget for providing supplementary food to the hatching pairs.

Saving the life of each of the Egyptian Vulture hatchlings is of paramount importance for securing the future of the species in Bulgaria. At present the country harbours some 35% of the Balkan population. The trend established is rather worrying – the population number has dropped by 80% in the last 30 years.

We are very grateful for the opportunity and support of BitHope and all the donors involved in the campaign!
