Bitcoin donations seem to be "growing in acceptance" in some nonprofit circles; for international orgs, there's the appeal of stability and reduced transaction costs.
"Charities are often open to all sorts of donations, whether in money or in kind. Now they’re turning to a new source: donations of bitcoin. Among the charities soliciting donations from bitcoin users are Save the Children, an aid agency that receives hundreds of millions of dollars in donations every year, American Red Cross and Greenpeace. 'There is a sense that this is growing in acceptance in the nonprofit sector,' says Ettore Rossetti, director, social media and digital marketing at Save the Children." -- Rachel Emma Silverman, the Wall Street Journal
