You may show your support to Gaia grid in a variety of ways.
Promote - You can support us by liking and sharing facebook.com/thegaiagrid. You can write about us or just talk to your friends about what we are doing and spread the word about the campaign. The buzzword is #iamgaiagrid
Volunteer – If you are planning on visiting Kerala, we would be happy to have your hand in our day-to-day work. There is a lot of planting, digging, watering and cooking that you could help us with. You pay for your food and we share our house with you!
Donate – Books, heirloom seeds, tools, expertise (we know it rhymes) and money; we will be happy to receive them all as unconditional gifts. You may also donate monthly if you like what we are doing.
Here we have a list of current projects that need urgent donations that are time sensitive. If you feel abundant today and would like to pass on that abundance, do consider donating.
1. Community toilet + shower block - After 5 years of using a makeshift toilet and shower space, we are now building slightly better facilities to enable more volunteers and participants to stay and learn on the land. Our total budget for the toilet project is 2 lakh rupees ($2,689) of which we only need to raise 40,000 rupees ($537) more. If you wish to support in infrastructure building on the land, we will be thrilled <3
While donating money, you may choose where you want your donation to be used and we will ensure to do that. We've added five separate donation options - UPI (donations from Indian bank accounts), Paypal, Ethereum, Bitcoin and Cardano. Do read the bitcoin disclaimer below if you have concerns about the climate <3
UPI - gaiagrid@icici
Cryptocurrency usage disclaimer - We know that Bitcoin isn't the most climate friendly tech out there and actually encourage people to use Cardano (ADA) as an alternative cryptocurrency. We believe that self sustainability in terms of global economics is also very important for the long term resilience of civilisation. Hence, after weighing the pros and cons we've decided to accept crypto as well, and we are hopeful that as technology progresses, miners will be forced to use more renewable methods of mining. And in the meantime, do read up about Cardano and how it is working toward creating a very environmentally sound, completely decentralised and secure cryptocurrency.
