What charities have APIs or allow users to write programs that donate to them

Is there any non-profit or charity that allows you to programatically donate? E.g. I run a website and when users do certain things, I'd like to say "proceeds from such actions go to a good cause." Right now, I'm doing it by hand. I've seen Kiva come out with an API, but it's mainly for showing off their transactions, no money changes hands. I'm sure charities take PayPal?

Is there an international money transfer service with an API that supports transfers to Vietnam, Sri Lanka?

I'm designing an online application for a large number of users, and I'm looking for an online service to automate payments to international destinations using some sort of API or batch process. The service needs to support transfers from the U.S. to India, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam. Since PayPal doesn't yet support transfers to Sri Lanka or Vietnam (only from), it's not an option.

OO programming in Autocad?

I have developed an application in AutoLISP which I would like to re-write in an OO language. AutoCAD seems to natively support VB but I don't think I want to go there. I am starting to learn C# and Python, and like both. How easy is it to link Autocad and C# or Python (or Ruby, etc.)? I am aware of PyCad but not sure I understand how to get it to work, plus it requires Autocad 2000 which is like requiring windows 95. In short, I am quite the newbie at this and would appreciate a simple but thorough explanation of how to use a modern programming language in Autocad.

Best development kit to write applications for Nokia 3650

I'd like to write a few applications for my Nokia 3650. I've played a little bit with Nokia's developer APIs in C++, and I've looked at a few J2ME code examples, but I don't have significant experience in either. I don't have the time (or interest) to become proficient in both - which development kit should I dive into, and why? I'm more concerned with performance on the 3650 than other phones, and I'm a pretty good programmer, so a steep learning curve is not too much of a concern. Thanks in advance.
