My name is Stephen Smith and I humbly greet you all.
I live and work in Johannesburg, South Africa.
My wife, Marian, and I are the founders of the wonderful Tsu Charity, The Papillon Foundation @XP116LLON
We registered the Charity in 2002 and since then it occupies all of our time.
Papillon has some amazing successes, even though it is run on a shoe-string.
It is my pleasure to be a part of this forum.
I was looking through the charities deciding which to donate to and I see that some have been inactive for some time, some as long as a year. I know that some of them have made a lot of money from Tsu, so why would they not at least post something? Maybe those did not get so much and gave up on it. I am more likely to give to the active ones.
There are at least 62 charities on Tsu now according to http://www.tsu.co/charities/following. They represent a lot of countries now, but I think they need more so that people can donate to a local charity. I've heard that all they need to do is to send details of their charity registration to Tsu. We should encourage our local charities to join up.

I really like to see charities cashing out of tsu. http://www.tsu.co/PawPromiseRescue/69976254. Al Giordano's charity did made several hundreds of dollars in the first 6 weeks, too.
All of that charity work on tsu is just great!
I hope we will be able to donate @UnitedDonations at least $100 per month to charity until the end of 2015. So we could ensure cash out for 1 charity per month!

This article seems to have some inside informations - http://www.bizjournals.com/newyork/blog/techflash/2015/04/social-media-startup-tsu-payments-to-users.html. (article is on 2 pages, don't forget to read the second one).
Very interesting info is that tsu is close to Series B funding round (within next few weeks). They want to raise $10M in this round and they have raised $3.6M so far according to this document - http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1597327/000159732715000001/xslFormDX01/primary_doc.xml
What do you think about this?
