The Idea and Experience of GiveSafely.io
The Idea and Experience of GiveSafely.io, a conversation with Art Taylor, President and CEO of BBB Wise Giving Alliance
30-minute conversation over "lunch" about the user experience of GiveSafely.io. Two years ago, Art saw the potential of the blockchain as a way to give donors control over the use of their data and reward them for providing personal data while giving to their favorite charities. And now, GiveSafely.io has launched with that exact mission. Talk with Art about your experience using the platform, and how we can improve and expand it!
**We'll email you and the other participants to set up a time!**
