The Charitocracy main page remains the same poker-faced, "Coming soon!" message it's been all along. Until we're granted permission to solicit from the general public across the nation, this is how we'll keep the charitable hordes at bay: a secret back door for friends and family.
Not unlike Charitocracy, Rochambeau is a bit difficult to say and spell, so instead use this link to get in: https://charitocracy.org/dashboard/
Note that beta test accounts and nominated causes have been wiped from the server, so don't be surprised that your old username/password aren't recognized.
Please sign up at a donation level you're comfortable with, maybe nominate your favorite cause of broad national appeal (i.e. probably not your local school PTO!), and definitely report any problems you encounter, big or small, via this blog, Facebook, email (benj at charitocracy dot org), or text message. Screenshots welcome!
Nominations will close in 7 days, at which point you'll receive an email summary of the newly nominated causes. (I hope there's more than 10, or it'll be real hard to narrow them down to the top 10 halfway through the month!) Vote now, revote later! Your vote won't be locked in until September 30.
I'm excited that Charitocracy is ALIVE, we have real donation dollars going into the pot, and we'll be able to write a real check to some deserving cause a month from now! Let's make that check as big as possible, friends...

I think someone listened to”Hamilton” way too much this summer! So excited things are moving forward!
Oh, you know it! Thanks, Penelope. (Looking forward to seeing you Monday night!)
Your obedient servant,
