On the 12th of July last year, I published the tragic story of Pastor Phil Vollman, in the article, Crypto Thief Fleeces Pastor of 14.2 Bitcoin and 507 Litecoin. This included a video interview with Phil, conducted by Brian the UK Bitcoin Master and Rocky Palumbo.
In that interview, a TallyCoin fundraiser was launched, seeking to return 14.2 Bitcoin to Phil. Twice a week since then, Brian the UK Bitcoin Master has used his YouTube channel as a platform to faithfully promote Phil's cause. During that time, 42 donations, adding up to just over 0.2 Bitcoin were received. Phil, being the sort of person that he is, was highly appreciative of every single donation, no matter the amount. He expressed this over and over, however, the possibility of reaching the target of 14.2 Bitcoin seemed out of reach.
That was, until yesterday, when an anonymous donor contributed 13.9995 Bitcoin to achieve the 14.2 BTC goal and bring about a Christmas miracle for Phil and his family.
Today, Phil returned to Brian the UK Bitcoin Master's YouTube channel, to discuss and celebrate this amazing turn of events. You can watch the video below.
