Description

Overview Why a Public Service Campaign? I think a SmartCash public service campaign could really do some good for the world and also help get the word out about our community in another positive way. I think it is important we continue to give back to the world. Being active in communities outside cryptocurrency will help us engage with new communities and support our outreach campaign. We can publicize using campaign images on twitter and quote the organization on twitter. This is potential for viral outreach. Polar Bears I propose we organize a public service campaign around helping polar bears. Those polar bears and in a rough spot. Sea ice is retreating in the polar caps so the feeding grounds of the bears are getting harder and harder for them. They are literally starving. Here’s a video: https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/12/polar-bear-starving-arctic-sea-ice-melt-climate-change-spd/ Let’s make this happen. Let’s make “SmartCash is helping polar bears.” become a reality.
