**TL;DR: Leave a comment on this thread. A random user will be chosen, and everyone donates a dollar to make a millionaire. Don’t forget to upvote this thread and join our mailing list! [Reminder to donate](http://bit.ly/2t0OGtu) and [reminder to enter the next drawing](http://bit.ly/2s56oYM)**
**What is this, anyway?**
Two years ago, a redditor posted an idea in /r/Showerthoughts that speculated the fact that [If a million of us picked a certain redditor and all donated just $1, we would have the power to make someone a millionaire](http://www.reddit.com/r/Showerthoughts/comments/2mq94c/if_a_million_of_us_picked_a_certain_redditor_and/).
We are now an embodiment of that showerthought, and this is our next attempt to make it happen.
We **need** your help to keep this running, which only amounts to a $1 a month to make someone’s day. Now how does it work? Look below.
**How to enter:**
* REQUIRED: Leave **one** (1) top level comment in reply to this thread! Replying to other comments will not count. We highly recommend commenting `”RemindMe! 2 days Donation for /r/millionairemakers”`, this will remind you via PM to donate. You can also follow [this link](http://bit.ly/2t0OGtu) and click send to be reminded to donate.
* Only ONE top level *(not a reply)* comment per person, but feel free to reply to other comments. Making duplicate top level comments may result in exclusion from entering. Go to /u/me to ensure you don’t accidentally double comment. Delete any extra duplicates ASAP.
* Your account must be older than 30 days with some amount of activity. Obvious throwaway accounts with very minimal activity will also not be eligible. This is to prevent multiple entries from the same person.
**How will the winner be picked and how can you donate?**
* After **24 hours** this thread will close and the method of selection will begin.
* The method can be read in detail [here](http://www.reddit.com/r/millionairemakers/comments/2ournt/explanation_of_our_new_drawing_system_inspired_by/)
* Method TL;DR: we assign number by sorting the comments by old, so the first commenter will be 1. We then wait for a randomly generated block (a string of numbers) from Bitcoin’s blockchain, and calculate the winner using the formula described in the post mentioned above.
* The user who created the winning comment will be informed of their luck and will provide any information necessary for the chosen payment method (mods will help set this up if needed).
* The generous Reddit community donates to this lucky person, hopefully making some worthy soul a millionaire!
* The lucky redditor posts a thank you within the next days, revealing to the community exactly how much was raised and thanking the community for their generosity.
* Take the time you have available now to setup your PayPal account and/or cryptocurrency wallets. To buy bitcoin, you may use [Coinbase](https://www.coinbase.com/) for purchases using your bank account. To store bitcoin, we recommend the Mycelium wallet for [iOS](https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mycelium-bitcoin-wallet/id943912290?mt=8) and [Android](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mycelium.wallet&hl=en) or the [Electrum](https://electrum.org/#home) wallet for Android, Mac, Linux, and PC.
* Please try your best to donate a $1, no matter who wins. Every single dollar, cent, anything really counts, so please take the effort to remember and go through with it.
* If you want to be reminded to donate, please comment `”RemindMe! 2 days Donation for /r/millionairemakers”` or check out our [IFTTT recipes](/r/jaysamuel/comments/2wnvrw/all_of_my_ifttt_recipes/).
* Spread the word! The more people who participate, the better this gets for everyone! There has been a cool correlation between where we made it it in /r/all and donations.
* Try to cross-post this post to relevant subs. (Please don’t spam other subs though. We’re not trying to make any enemies here)
* **If you are under 18, please talk to your parents to get their consent to participate and use their help to setup a PayPal account.**
At this point, Reddit, it’s all up to you. Make us proud. Change the world. Prove the internet can do good.
Remember, this is about generosity, about making history, and about coming together to make someone’s life better. So take 3 minutes to donate a bit to the winner, whether you’re well off and want to donate a few bucks, or going through tough times and can only donate a few cents. Every cent counts.
Note about legality: This is NOT a lottery. You don’t have to pay to enter. Also, WE are not giving any prizes away (the moderators will never even touch your donations). As for gift taxes, according to the IRS they’re generally paid by the donor, and any donation under $14,000 is not taxable.
Think of what you could do with $1,000,000… You could pay off student loans, have lifesaving surgery, or even give $1 to a million people!
So Reddit, thanks for sticking with us through that long post. It’s finally time to change a life. Help us to the front page, so we can make history, and…
**LET’S MAKE A MILLIONAIRE!**
