Giv2 is a simple charity donation service for Twitter which uses the JustGiving platform. It's easy to use if you're a donor and easy to set up if you're a charity registered with JustGiving. Let's start with how a donor makes a donation. All they have to do to start with is send a tweet like this:

Of course you change the @twittername bit to whatever charity you want to donate to (like @YorkshireAirAmb for example) and you can donate more than £5if you like. Or less. The minimum donation is £2 but that's because if it's less than that it's a bit of a drag to process.

Once you've sent the tweet we'll get our trained squirrels to look up the charity's account details and send you a personalised link to complete the donation. The donation is processed by JustGiving, so we don't even get to peek at your credit card details, they process millions of pounds of donations and are a completely secure and trusted platform for charity donations; they'll even help make sure that Gift Aid is claimed so the charity may receive more than you actually donate.
We have a three step process for those who want to receive donations and the first step is to use the login button so we can check with Twitter for a few details about your account. We're not going to get your password and we won't mess with your Twitter account.
