Niall,

I CAN'T take vacation, fly to other continent now, enlist, get training, learn procedures, and start helping. I have to get visa first (not the credit card, the one for entering the  state, you know...).

In Ireland, we have had huge scandals over the last decade in the charity sector. There is widespread corruption and mismanagement of funds, and sadly a lot of charity dependants have suffered as the result of the greed of charity executives. They take huge salaries, company car, pensions and all the other perks, taken straight out of the money that the public donated. 

The reason that I was drawn to cryptos initially a few years ago, was the potential I saw to help people/local organisations directly without having to funnel money through some corporate charity. Not just xrp, but Bitcoin and all the rest have the potential to skew the worlds wealth away from the elite and make the world a more even playing field. When people realise this, this is when the penny drops for most.

Agreed except that I doubt so much of donations being abused. I do have personal experience in how ngo's happen to work on the field. Not saying it's all perfect, but they often make a difference and they do it in many places on earth. But like always, the negative news very fast reaches the headlines, but the positive and good work seldom does come written in the newspaper....   "not interesting enough to sell" ....

But I do follow you that blockchain tech can help a lot in easy and cheap movement of funds to developing regions. Not only for charity workers, but also for small scale and globalised fair trading....
