That link should be added to the wiki page on ways to donate by
someone with the ability to edit locked wiki pages.

By my calculations, for donations that are under ~$12, processing fees
taken by Causes (actually, by its non-profit partner, Network For
Good) will be slightly less than pay pal fees, even assuming we are
getting the non-profit rate from paypal... Network for Good takes
4.75%, vs PayPal's 2.2% + $0.30 per transaction. Feel free to check my
maths: http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/function-grapher.php?func1=.3+0.022*x&func2=0.0475*x&xmin=-20&xmax=20&ymin=-12.8333333333333&ymax=13.8333333333333

Also if you go to the url above, log in via facebook, and Join the
cause, you should eventually be prompted to "Give a Minute" (watch a
promotional video or fill out a survey or similar activity) which will
result in a $0.10 donation to Noisebridge. W00T, free munniez, every
little bit counts!


PS, In the interest of full disclosure, I should probably mention that
I am a Causes employee.
PPS, In the interest of fuller disclosure, I post this purely out of
love for NB, and I'm sorry if it seems at all like a shameless plug.
