Hi, Shapeshift community!
URGENT – Earthquake relief appeal needs your support!
Giveth is calling for URGENT contributions to the ‘Earthquake Relief QF Matching Pool’: organized by Giveth, Gitcoin, SuperModular and Inverter Network to support relief efforts in the aftermath of one of the worst earthquake disasters in Turkey and Syria.
The news last week was heart-breaking; and many in our wider web3 network have been impacted on a personal level. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned of a ‘secondary disaster’ with major disruptions to communications, water, fuel and electricity supplies, compounded by freezing temperatures.
The Web3 community has acted quickly. Launched over the weekend, Giveth, Gitcoin, SuperModular and Inverter Network have put the wheels in motion for a Quadratic Funding round using Allo Protocol, the latest evolution of Gitcoin Grants. The fundraiser is hosted on the Giveth platform, and your donation will support relief organizations on the ground: meeting immediate needs for water, shelter and food.
Shapeshift, your support can make a huge difference!
We are appealing to you for an urgent contribution of $20,000 to be shared equally amongst relief organizations to help relieve suffering on the ground. The organizations are vetted, verified, connected and experienced so you know your donation will be going to the right place.
Giveth will subsidize every donation to this verified project.
DAOs often don’t pay taxes, which means no tax-deductible donations. So like Ethereum does with staking rewards, your generous contribution to this QF fundraiser will be rewarded with a bunch of $GIV tokens through our GIVbacks program. Investing in kindness can potentially pay off in good market conditions.

We are also requesting your support to spread awareness of the cause, so we can maximise the amount raised and demonstrate the power and compassion of crypto fundraising in our web3 community.
