In this episode of SovereignBTC, John Bush does an in-depth interview with Connie Gallipi of the BitGive Foundation. Connie and John discuss BitGive's previous project and focus much of their discussion on their recent action to build a well in an impoverished African community at an all girls school. They talk about bitcoin as a tool to empower non-profits and philanthropists and how crypto-currency bypasses middle-men and gatekeepers and allows those looking to do good to have the greatest impact.
