My girlfriend wants to auction off her 3' dreadlocks for charity. Is there a website that will track donation pledges as votes for or against the chop? Sort of like PledgeBank
but with the feature of multiple competing pledges? [more inside]

Ideas for seeking corporate donations of tech equipment and air travel? I'm one of the co-founders of a free arts/tech workshop happening for the first time this August in Serbia. We've already had some modest success getting funding for this through traditional channels, but I also want to approach hardware companies and airlines to see if they can help us.

I tried doing this on my own, it's pretty easy stuff really; but, it's ripping my heart out to try to proceed. I need a little help finding a good PTSD-related fund to which we can send my son's memorial fund money. [more inside]

Perth (Australia) Filter: Anyone know where I can purchase a perspex/lucite/acrylic, clear, lockable donation box in the Perth metro area? Size would be suitable for putting on a small table. Would need to accept notes as well as coins. I only want one.

I ordered a CD from the neighbor kid raising money for his school. I realize now I'd rather have just made a donation. How could I handle this in the future?

Are there any matching-gift channels to make a Red Cross donation for persons who do not have employer-match? This is obviously a propos to Katrina, but I am also interested to learn if there may be permanent programs of this sort.

What's the most you can cost someone who sent you a prepaid business reply mail envelope? I just got one of these, fishing for a tax-deductible donation to a 501(c)(3) group, one I would pay money to see stomped to death.
I want to hear from people who've done this and suffered no repercussions, as well as any former or current USPS employees who might know where that fine line is. I'm also open to anything that keeps me on the mailing list, but still costs them more in postage than it's worth.

Our office adopts a family and we're suppose to either give money or buy them items on the list they give us. They use the money collected to buy anything on the list that hasn't been bought. My question, is it better to donate money or buy things from the list? I'm going to spend the same amount of money either way, and I'd like to make what money I give work best. I know the HR department, and the women who run the program go out and buy the items at the end, it is not some faceless charity. They indicate no preference either way. [more inside]

I'd like to make a presidential campaign contribution, but I want to avoid being put on any kind of list. Should I mail cash? I'm afraid to use a check or credit card. It will be under $200, the threshold above which the law requires the campaign to report my info. I guess I could do a money order. But are completely anonymous donations okay? If so, what's to stop someone from making 1,000 different anonymous donations of $150, and skirting the $200 law?

I'm looking for a charity to donate my old car to - it's a '90 Nissan Sentra, pretty beat up, but still running. I've found plenty of websites for places that will take your car, but I'm not sure which ones are legitimate charities and which ones are money-making scams. Does anyone have any experience with this? Which ones are most reputable?

I've got an old computer I don't need, and I'd like to donate it to one of those third world programs, rather than chuck it out. Can anyone point me to an organisation (preferably in London) who look after this?

Following a link from the blue, I ended up here
. What would happen if I, as a non-US resident sent Dean - or any of the other candidates - money? Would it be likely to show up? Could they do anything to me? (I should emphasise that i have no intention of giving him a penny)
