Puppies vs Computers

Puppies vs Computers

This Christmas season, we’re asking you to choose between man’s best friend, and man’s best invention.

The Puppies vs Computers Christmas donation drive started because of the CoinJar team’s passion for supporting non-profit organisations. We tend to be a very opinionated and outspoken bunch here, so we’re putting that energy to good use by supporting two of our favourite Australian non-profits, PetRescue and Electronic Frontiers Australia.

Now, a bit about the contenders.

PetRescue is an Australia-wide non-profit organisation and Australia’s most visited charity website. They bring pet seekers face-to-furry-face with thousands of rescue pets from shelters and rescue groups nationwide. They save over 6,000 lives every month and since launching, they’ve re-homed over 250,000 pets.

Electronic Frontiers Australia has been Australia’s leading voice for digital rights since 1994. They’re independent of government and commerce and rely on membership subscriptions and donations to operate. They campaign for your right to digital privacy by writing submissions, meeting with Federal MPs and Senators, and lobbying.

Take your pick.

Get in the bitcoin-giving spirit and donate! It’s a little cheeky but there’s nothing like a bit of friendly competition, especially for the causes these non-profits campaign for.

Using CoinJar, send any amount using CoinJar usernames: @PetRescue or @EFA_Oz.
