Hi All,

One way of collecting funds seems to be a Donate button on the web
site. I noticed on the home page there is not even a link to donate.
There should be.

BitTorrent has a simple Donate page: (via PayPal)
http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/donate.html

First of all, the SourceForge site doesn't have a donation feature enabled:
https://sourceforge.net/donate/index.php?group_id=86315

You can see what it would look like here:
https://sourceforge.net/donate/index.php?group_id=7578

There could also be a small Paypal Donate tag on the bottom of the site:
http://www.icsglobal.org/fundraising/donation.asp

Amazon has the Amazon Honor System to donate. Example:
http://s1.amazon.com/paypage/PI1SAN9C4TW9J/002-5067630-8745610

FAQ for the Amazon Honor System:
http://s1.amazon.com/exec/varzea/subst/fx/help/payor-faq.html
I believe you just need to have an account on Amazon to participate.

This way when the Open Voting Consortium reaches the news and gets a ton
of visitors to their web site, people can donate. More than one method
of donation is usually a good idea, as some people hate paypal or amazon.
