If they added bitcoin donations without having first been contacted by the bitcoin100, cool, people can donate bitcoins. But the bitcoin100 money should not be sent, is should be reserved to be offered to organizations to encourage the to add bitcoin doantions. Perhaps on the bitcoin donation website you can add a page linking to places that accept bitcoin donations, and thus people who want to contribute can? Also you would link to all the organizations that added bitcoin donations because of our efforts, that way people can go back and contribute again to them later.
What is the situation you think should qualify a non-profit for the Bitcoin100? (Sorry, I am not sure what you mean because you have some typos).
My take on this is that we shouldn't use Bitcoin100 in situations like this. They didn't add the link because of us.
What is 'us'? I was under the impression that this was a diffuse gathering of donors, without the need for a central authority. Because at least two Bitcoin100 members (Obsi and I) contributed to them adding the link. I think that is besides the point though, shouldn't we be encouraging all charities to accept bitcoin, regardless of whether someone from this forum has contacted them? I don't think we need to bring pride into our charitable donations.

1. They posted to their blog, asking for donations
2. Several commenters ask if they can donate bitcoin/where to send it.
3. Obsi emails email@example.com
to ask for BTC address, gets reply posts it
4. I emailed june, asking for her to post her BTC address on the donate page to be sure that it was Internet Archive's (Obsi probably replied similarly)
5. She put a link on the donate page to a BTC address in their FAQ.
-It is not the best placement
-It is not as emotionally charged as donations to feed the needyBut, this is the first non-profit organization to accept bitcoin! This is a big deal!
Internet Archive provides a great service to the digital community. CoinLab already donated 10BTC. Come on guys, let's at least bring the total up to 100. (it's at 65 at time of this post, 35 to go!)
