Leveraging Bitcoin to Solve Venezuela’s Hyperinflation ...

Here's the letter I just sent to Planet Money indicating that I would like to donate to their pledge drive in DOGE.

Preamble: For those of you who may not know of Planet Money, it's an NPR backed Podcast that specializes in economics. It's well respected and very popular (as in, the 10th most popular Podcast on iTunes, out of ALL podcasts). As with all NPR programs right now, they are in the middle of a pledge drive. I have offered to give them 100,000 DOGE if they put a Dogecoin address on their website.
Maybe you'd like to donate too? Maybe you'd like to let them know that you have some DOGE for them?

Planet Money does amazing work, and I will probably support them regardless of whether they accept DOGE. But I do think that if we can get their interest they will realize that there's an amazing story here that's worthy of their coverage.
Dear Planet Money team,
By now you are probably aware of Dogecoin, the new crypto currency that's getting a lot of attention lately. I would like to tell you why I am personally committed to Dogecoin, and how Dogecoin may benefit Planet Money directly.
Finally, I would like to propose an experiment. Since you're in the middle of a pledge drive right now, give your listeners who use Dogecoin a chance to show their generosity. All you need to do is put a Dogecoin wallet address up on your website. If you need help figuring out how to get an address, you can read the "getting started" guide or I can personally help you out. The cost to you is nothing, except for the small amount of time it takes to put the address on your site.
If you set up a Dogecoin address and post it publicly, I will personally pledge 100,000 Dogecoins to Planet Money. Converting Dogecoin to USD is not difficult, but you may want to use some of the Dogecoins to participate in the Dogecoin economy. I bet the experience would make a fascinating podcast!
To the moon,
[my name]

In a recent episode of Planet Money, a podcast and blog produced by National Public Radio (NPR), an independent American non-profit media organization, venture capitalist Ben Horowitz and financial journalist Felix Salmon were brought together to discuss the result of a bet on Bitcoin adoption that they made in February 2014 (during another episode of Planet Money).
