When we set up our courses at http://lexitronics.org, we fairly classically and perhaps hopefully included a ‘donate’ system. We also decided to send 50% of any donations to charity, though we were a little unsure as to how to do this and who to go with. We wanted ideally to feed back something into education, and we wanted to feel that any money sent would be well-used. Further, we wanted to contribute to something that was concrete and visible. Not easy. Karolina’s work with the ESK School in Burma solves the problem, and any voluntary donations we receive through Lexitronics courses will be directed accordingly.
This does not of course prevent anyone contributing directly and solely to the ESK Project, and bypassing us completely. See the ‘How to Help the ESK’ section at: http://lexitronics.edublogs.org for how to do this.
