HOW-TO: DONATING TO #WIKILEAKS? #imwikileaks

Hash: SHA1

Apparently Bank of America has been refusing transactions to wikileaks
[http://wlcentral.org/node/652]! Being a BofA customer, I just had to
try it.

If you follow the wikileak's official donation page
[http://wikileaks.ch/Support.html] the only way non-Europeans can
donate is through a bank transfer. I tried setting it up, and it was a
pain. From no email address, to the funny characters that Icelanders
use - it was a pain. If you want to give it try, use the following
information that finally worked. But there was a $45 international
transfer fee! Eff that. If you want to do this route, this is the
information that worked:

Business name: Sunshine Press Productions ehf
Nickname: wikileaks
Email: wikileaks@wikileaks.info
Street address: Skulagytu 19
City: Reykjavik
Country: ICELAND
Postal code: 101
Notes: No one can tell me how to spend my money.

Bank name: NBI hf
BANK/SWIFT: NBIIISRE
IBAN: IS970111266110106110100280

You can't use PayPal
[http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/paypal_announces_it_will_no_longer_handl...].
They're not taking Visa or MC [http://www.datacell.com/news.php].

The best things I could find was donating through xipwire.com
[https://xipwire.com/give/wl] or using flattr
[http://flattr.com/profile/WikiLeaks]. There isn't much information on
xipwire, but a blog mentioned that they're donating 100% of the funds
to the cause [http://sporkinthedrawer.typepad.com/blog/2010/12/donating-to-wikileaks.html].
Their fee schedule is reasonable (free until 2011.) I just wish there
was some sort of endorsement from wikileaks, so right now can only
take xipwire.com's word that they're sending the funs. While flattr
has takes a 10% cut, flattr is founded by none-other than the founder
of thepiratebay.org, I support them too so I may go that route.
