It's bobsleigh time: Jamaican team raises $25,000 in

Of Wolves and Weasels - Day 148 - DOGE4DOGE - Building a Worldwide Brand

Hey all, GoodShibe here!
With our Bootstrap Service Economy starting to take shape, I think now is an excellent time for us to talk about Marketing and Advertising and how we're actually more than just a coin - why we're building a Worldwide Brand.
And why that's a great thing.
You see, I read a post today from slipstream-
Reading comments on hacker news and found this interesting comment related to dogecoin...
Which got me thinking. See, traditionally, I've never been a 'sales' person or an 'Advertising' person. In fact, I have, especially when I was younger, espoused a very... uh... Bill Hicks-ish (warning: NSFW language) approach to the topic.
So what changed?
Mostly, my perspective.
Marketing and Advertising are tools, no more or less bad than hammers or power saws. Heck, I spent all last weekend Advertising for the Lego Movie without even realizing it. (Seriously, I'm not being paid for this, but check it out, it's awesome).
But we do it all the time.
We want people to know about and appreciate the same things that we do. We tell people where to try good food, where the best grocery deals are, where the cheapest gas is, what Radio stations we like, what TV shows and movies we're watching.
If you've ever used a Foursquare-ish app to announce your location, you're Advertising for someone - doing their work for them. If you've ever raved about how awesome Game of Thrones is... you're Advertising.
Most of us don't realize it, but there's actually quite a difference between Marketing and Advertising. Advertising is only about getting the word out there - it is only a small part of the Marketing process.
But Marketing itself covers quite a large number of other factors:
"Market research, media planning, public relations, product pricing, distribution, customer support, sales strategy, and community involvement." (From above, linked article)
And, whether we realize it or not, we're actively taking part in this process, daily.
Here's a brief set of examples, just off the top of my head:
Market Research - What are the other coins doing? What's Bitcoin/Litecoin/etc doing?
Media Planning - Hey, let's help get the Jamaican Bobsled Team to Sochi.
Public Relations - See our What is Dogecoin Video
Product Pricing - How many threads exist about us watching the price and waxing poetic about where it should and shouldn't be?
Distribution - Tipping
Customer Support - /Dogeducation, for one. HowToDoge.com, DogecoinTutorial.com, all sorts of options there.
Sales Strategy - DOGE4DOGE is all about helping our coin gain acceptance locally and worldwide
Community Involvement - I'm pretty sure this one goes without saying
Where Marketing and Advertising go to the Dark Side is when it becomes about Lies. When you can't actually sell the product on its merits.
The International Brand that we're building with Dogecoin is something that WE'VE had a say in every step of the way. Our symbol, our coin, has come to represent our values of Fun and Kindness, Compassion and Camaraderie - worldwide, no matter what language you speak.
We fight for the the Underdoge - and we believe that the future of money is in showing appreciation for people, instantly, no matter where they are in the world. Financially empowering the people who are working to make their world a more fun, more interesting, better place to live.
No one person did this. You did, all of us did.
Because we wanted it bad enough.
We took a joke and made the world laugh along with us - and there is more joy and laughter and fun and kindness in the world... thanks to you.
Thanks to Dogecoin.
So while some people might scoff and roll their eyes, I feel that we should continue to pick up and use the tools that we've been given.
Because 'Money' is the least revolutionary thing about us.
We're not 'going' to change the world.
We ARE changing the world.
And we're only just getting started.
It's 9:05AM EST and we're at 81.05% of DOGEs found. Our Global Hashrate is holding strong at ~46 Gigahashes per second and our Difficulty is down from ~866 to ~713.
As always, I appreciate your support!

I have emailed Warren Buffet asking him if he would like to invest and help a worthy cause

Any other investors we should try get hold of? I thought that since Warren is a very charitable guy he may want to help our cause... and lets face it Dogecoin is so undervalued.
Email below:
Hi Warren
I'm not expecting a reply and I know you're a very busy man so i'll keep this short and sweet.
You will know about bitcoin and how people are investing in this 'cryptocurrency'. However Bitcoin is really built around a few investors who hold all the coins and there is no real cause/community behind it.
There is a new coin out called 'Dogecoin' (released Dec 6) which started out as a joke but now has a very strong community backing it. I have never seen a community like it. Everyone involved in this community is about helping others and spreading the love. You can check this out for yourself at http://reddit.com/dogecoin
When the Dogecoin community discovered that the Jamaican bobsled team had qualified for the winter olympics for the first time in 12 years (remember the movie cool runnings?) we managed to raise the $30,000 to send the team within 24 hours! http://www.businessinsider.com.au/dogecoin-jamaican-bobsled-team-olympics-2014-1
We've also helped a stranded indian competitor get to the Winter Olympics within 3 hours: http://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/dogecoin-india-shiva-keshavan-2014-winter-olympics-sochi/
The reason I thought you might be interested in this is because Dogecoin is VERY new but I believe will be the next big cryptocurrency. I have tripled my investment in 3 weeks. If you check out http://coinmarketcap.com you will see we are #4 in the coin charts in a very short amount of time (filter non-mineable coins). If you were to invest in this currency the price would no doubt skyrocket.
We are also big believers in charity work and I know you have sponsored ALOT to charity. Thank you for this... if everyone was like you we could solve alot of problems humanity face! If you would like to hear more please let me know... I can help you get involved.. We have just set up a Dogecoin charity fund so we can help out more people in need and it would be awesome if you would like to get involved!
If you read this far thank you very much for your time.
Cheers Brad

A Jamaican bobsled fan launched a campaign on Crowdtilt to pool funds for the team from sympathetic fans and, before long, the startup got wind of the campaign, as did the team’s president Bitcoin 101.

As funds continue to stream in, it looks like the Jamaican bobsled team may be heading for Sochi.
