Charity Donation

Unread postby dr210077 » Sat May 30, 2009 10:06 pm

I want to find a way that allows people to donate to charity, and the two biggest challenges I'm facing are the code to use and the charity to donate to. I'm thinking of a direct link to the donate section of "Medecins Sans Frontieres"

This is a link to the M.S.F website
"If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favours them in order to profit from the blindness of men."

About MSF

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) was established in 1971 by a small group of French doctors who had worked in Biafra. Upon their return, they were determined to find a way to respond rapidly and effectively to public health emergencies, with complete independence from political, economic and religious influences.

Today, we are the world's leading independent international medical relief organisation, with 5 operational centres in Europe and 14 national sections worldwide.

Our mandate concerns emergency relief, and the principles we honour while carrying out our work are contained in the MSF Charter. We launch our operations in areas where there is no medical infrastructure or where the existing one cannot withstand the pressure to which it is subjected. In most cases, relief programs change to rehabilitation projects that may run for several years after the most urgent needs have been met.

For more than 35 years, we have been providing medical help to people caught in many kinds of catastrophes: armed conflicts, natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes, epidemics of disease, and famines. All these situations call for rapid response with specialised medical and logistical help. We are renowned for our quick response and efficient, effective work in the toughest emergencies. Beyond the drama of the acute crisis, we also intervene in times that call for a less urgent type of action, for instance, in chronic refugees situations, areas of chronic instability, and in periods following a conflict or disaster. The action we take comes in multiple forms:

* Emergency public health care, including medicine and surgery
* Mass vaccination campaigns
* Water and sanitation systems
* Therapeutic and supplementary nutrition
* Distribution of drugs and supplies
* Training and health education
* Organisation or rehabilitation of health structures
* Medical assistance within existing health structures

We observe impartiality in the name of medical ethics and the right to humanitarian assistance. To ensure this independence, an important part of our funding for projects comes from donations from the public, as well as from corporations and foundations. Additional funding comes from national governments and international institutions, such as the Canadian International Development Agency [CIDA], European Community and various bodies of the United Nations.

In carrying out humanitarian assistance, we act as witnesses and will speak out, in private or in public, about the plights of the populations in danger for whom we work. In doing so, we seek to alleviate human suffering, to protect life and health, and to restore and ensure respect for human beings and their fundamental human rights.

We could also do a fundraiser.

I'd bet they'd provide you with a code if you emailed them. :)

I may not really know what I'm talking about here, but... it's like an embedding code you use to post images in facebook or whatever... you can use to link a button to another site.

For instance, when I advertised our guild to recruit members on Guild Wars Guru: it was free, but they encouraged people to embed a link with either a button or a banner on the guild website as a quid pro quo-type thing. They provided the code.

a direct link for paypal to donate for selected charities would be great!

We will definitely need to clear it with whatever charities we link to as there is a growing trend for fraudulent links that pay the donations into a dummy account, but even if we just ask for permission to create a link to the charity's site it would be a start. Once they realise that we are serious, and trust us enough, then maybe they will allow us to put a "donate" type button linking to their paypal account.

Sounds like it could work. What should we do as of now?
