CHICAGO, Oct. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — RockItCoin, one of America’s largest bitcoin ATM operation networks, has donated $10,000 of bitcoin (BTC) to PAWS Chicago, one of the largest No Kill animal shelters in the country and rated four-stars by Charity Navigator for the last 19 years. In an effort to provide easy access to cryptocurrency and assist forward-thinking organizations in meeting their fundraising goals, RockItCoin CEO Michael Dalesandro noted the following when PAWS Chicago recently began accepting cryptocurrency donations:


“As a Chicago-based organization, our team is well aware of the amazing work that PAWS Chicago has done over the years to help the local animal community and we’re excited to support them through their innovative cryptocurrency initiative. Crypto provides so many innovative ways to do good and being able to donate to help homeless pets is a perfect example of that.”

Unlike many traditional giving methods, the $10,000 BTC transaction was completed in minutes. PAWS Chicago allows donors to provide financial support via crypto directly through their website and RockItCoin simply used its digital wallet to make the donation directly to PAWS’ digital wallet.

Regarding the motivation to support PAWS’ Dogenation” charity campaign, Nick McGuire, RockItCoin’s Marketing Director, commented:

“RockItCoin is always looking for innovative ways to champion the use of cryptocurrency. When we came across PAWS Chicago’s new campaign, it seemed like a perfect way to not only help a great cause but also prove how organizations can effectively use crypto to support their needs and goals. PAWS is a pioneer in this regard. Not only that, but PAWS’ Dogenation campaign was hilarious.”

Dogenation billboards are appearing around Chicagoland, spreading the word about PAWS Chicago and cryptocurrency simultaneously. These ads have QR codes that allow passersby to donate directly.

In response to RockItCoin’s sizeable donation, Susanna Homan, CEO of PAWS Chicago, offered this statement:

“We launched our campaign to accept cryptocurrency in order to connect with this large, passionate and forward-thinking community of animal lovers. The campaign is the first step in a much larger overall plan to invite the crypto community to join us in building No Kill communities, starting with a No Kill Chicago. We’re grateful to RockItCoin for their incredibly generous donation. They are a valued partner in animal welfare.”

By supporting PAWS Chicago in their acceptance of cryptocurrency donations, RockItCoin is setting a business-first precedent and encouraging other organizations to take this next step into the future of fundraising and charitable giving.
