Every year, we lay flowers at Alan Turing’s statue in Manchester for his Birthday. It’s in just over a week. Who wants to send some?
Alan Turing's Birthday is on the 23rd of June. We're going to make it special, and I think r/cryptoCurrency might have a special place in its heart for the most famous name in (breaking) encryption…
Every year, people from Reddit pledge bunches of flowers to be placed at Alan Turing's statue in Manchester, UK, for his birthday. In the process we raise money for the amazing charity Special Effect, which helps people with disabilities access computer games.
Since 2013 we've raised about £7600 doing this, and we'd like 2021 to be our biggest year ever. Anyone who wants to get involved is welcome. Donations are made up of £3.50 to cover the cost of your flowers and a £14 charity contribution to Special Effect for a total of £17.50.
Manchester city council have confirmed they are fine with it, and we have people in Manchester who will help handle the set up and clean up.
