I just wrote to Unicef asking if they'd start accepting bitcoin donations, along with a hyper-summarised description of what BTC are and how they can be either used or exchanged for paper currencies.

I'm pretty sure I'll either be ignored or will get a reply saying they have no intention of accepting BTC.

Does anyone know of a service where one can send bitcoins and they will relay them as a donation to the organisation of one's choice?

Several exist there, but Bitcoins for Charity aggregates charities that accept Bitcoin donations directly, so the people you are trying to help get your aide instantly.

Wow, a twitter account with three tweets, all from the same day (coincidentally the same day that you posted the above), and a completely anonymous donation page? Nothing to be found by googling? And, funny enough, no bitcoin address to be found anywhere ;-)
If that's a scam, it's not even a good one....

I think the same thing, charities like UNICEF are not taking advantage of bitcoin enough. So I decided to add donations to the Canadian Red Cross (http://yestobitcoins.com/canadian-red-cross/) and Unicef (http://yestobitcoins.com/unicef-canada/) to my site. This service (converting the Bitcoin donation into dollars and submitting them UNICEF Canada or the Canadian Red Cross) is my contribution. Donations are transmitted in full to UNICEF Canada or the Canadian Red Cross and I will provide the them with the provided information for them to issue a receipt to the donor.

I hope this helps to their mission

Almost anything is subet of something. If even teh devil makes good things should be applaused for them.  And if God do bad things should not be overlooked.

Donors like to donate to charity anonymously. Bitcoin is best to serve their interests. If the charities haven't realized it yet, they will lose the opportunies of some one's donation.

i gave up donating to the corporate and government level "charities" years ago.

if you people want only 10% or less funds ending up doing anything practical. then throw your funds at the burning fire of the corporate charities.

otherwise think smarter, think about actual frontline services that do not have head offices, that do not have offices hundreds/thousands of miles away from where they are presumed to help. that do not have "employee's" who sit in offices.

im all for animal/human welfare where paying a doctor/vet to care for the ill.. but not national charities where 90% goes to some office, and only 10% goes towards the promoted theme.

if we are trying to do something different with bitcoin compared to fiat, then lets not just throw funds at these rich corporate charities. instead lets find the true front line services such as the charities that mimic seans outpost. where the guy receiving the funds is the actual charity worker feeding the poor, no middlemen.

getting corporate charities onboard should be less priority than getting proper frontline services onboard, getting local media to cover the story of how a local neighbourhood homeless or animal care charity gives more of a 'feel good factor' than simply having some middleman donating dollars to corporations in response to receiving bitcoins. or simply having a 'we accept bitcoin' bitpay button on their page. thats not really news worthy, afterall.

when people stop thinking about the 2 minutes of fame of having bitcoin exposure, and think about bitcoins true usefulness for people to actually help those in need via bitcoin, then that will last longer than 2 minutes of fame

Nice idea , its better use some of our Bitcoin for charity to feed poor children in some shity country.
There is alot of guys become gambling addict since they know Bitcoin , maybe its more wise to use for charity than to feed our gambling addict.

Corruption, embezzlement, fraud, these are all characteristics which exist everywhere.
It is regrettably the way human nature functions, whether we like it or not.
What successful economies do is keep it to a minimum. No one has ever eliminated any of that stuff.

Do charities have to keep records about whom they receive money from?
Are anonymous donations restricted to a certain amount?

While UNICEF may be above doubt, there are a lot of charities which serve as fronts for politicians (or even terrorist organizations). Are charities in general allowed to receive large anonymous donations?

Not just btc I wish. All the altcoin if they can. Even small amount of those coins will be of great help.

I am no expert, but i dont see reason why would they not accept anonymous donation. If some charity organizations are somehow linked to some political parties i am sure they have divided finances. Transactions i can see are only if you donate anonymously to political party, they will then just forward that to the charity organization. For sure the one they hold or sympathy with.
