Can Dogecoin send the Jamaican bobsled team to the winter Olympics?

Jamaicas cash-strapped bobsled team should be able to make it to the Olympics this year thanks to some unlikely donors. At the head of the pack is Reddits community of Dogecoin enthusiasts, who have collected over $30,000 worth of their virtual currency and are currently in the process of transferring it into liquid, stable cash that can be sent over to the team. Two crowdfunding campaigns have also quickly raised thousands of dollars, with a Crowdtilt campaign approaching $20,000 at the time of writing and an Indiegogo campaign— run by Jamaicas Olympic organization itself — just passing $6,000. Though donating directly to the Jamaican bobsled teams PayPal account or Indiegogo campaign may have been the safest and simplest option for support, Reddits Dogecoin community was also hoping to gain some publicity for its digital currency through the fundraiser.
