Apart from being one of the leading digital currencies at present, Ripple is also making its presence felt through its #RippleForGood Endeavor. According to a recent update, Ripple has decided to extend its support to Thorn, a non-profit organization headquartered in Los Angeles, California where it will partner with the non-profit for utilizing technology for a good cause.
The official announcement was made by Ripple through the micro-blogging site Twitter in the morning today. The powerful platform shared the news with its followers stating how proud it was to be able to support Thorn in attaining its key mission.
Thorn was incepted in 2012 by Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher with the focus on tackling predatory behavior, child sexual abuse, boosting victim ID and protecting vulnerable children through developing and deploying technology solutions. Ripple would be supporting the non-profit through The Audacious Project.
What is The Audacious Project?
The Audacious Project is a unique collaborative platform backed by TED and The Bridgespan Group. It helps the bold ideas which have the capacity of bringing true waves of social change surface. This project is a one-of-a-kind association which sees some of the most dignified philanthropy organizations partner with the public.
Introduced in 2018, the primary goal of The Audacious Project is to spread the philanthropy cause, making it more effective, collaborative, and inspiring for everyone around the world.
From trying to make the internet free from child sexual abuse to the initiative of enrolling 1.6 million Indian girls into schools, from harnessing the power of protein in making the upcoming medicines to utilising plants to slow the process of climate change, there are many such innovative and socially important ideas The Audacious Project has included in its 2019 roadmap.
The mission of The Audacious Project fits well with #RippleForGood which beliefs in thoroughly supporting key initiatives and organizations that have the likelihood of boosting and widening the worldwide financial inclusion significantly. At the same time, RippleForGood also concentrates on facilitating socially responsible utilization of digital currencies, blockchain as well as other linked technologies.
So far, Ripple has partnered with DonorsChoose.org, University Blockchain Research Initiative, and RippleWorks.
While DonorsChoose.org is driven towards providing students in the public school classroom structure in the United States with the right tools and experiences required for a good education, RippleWorks is dedicated to connecting leading tech experts and businessmen with inventive and rapidly evolving social projects across the world. UBRI, on the other hand, extends support to research, teaching, and innovation in the fields of digital currency, blockchain and similar domains at schools around the globe.
The announcement has garnered positive response among Ripple fans who are visibly excited upon witnessing Ripple contributing to social change.
