1) resend again to same address
2) resend to informatio AT eff DOT org
3) If you live in the US, send a fax or the letter via snail mail.
4) call them.

If you call, record the phone call and if you live in state required by law to inform party, then do so. ^_^
Then post on Internets.

I might be able to help with this. I have a personal contact at the EFF. I will write a letter. No promises though.

Probably just by sending everybody's Bitcoin commodity donations to the "eff" via Bitcoinmail to: membership at eff dot org  .... will introduce them to Bitcoins when they claim the donation (having to actually download the Bitcoin client app to receive the donation - and sell the Bitcoins for national currency - through one of the Bitcoin commodity exchanges if national currency might still be needed by them to conduct business in the conventional economy - alternatively they could embrace Bitcoin commodity and use Bitcoin commodity, as payment in like, if they can on there part again, reach agreement with their trading partners).  https://www.eff.org/about/contact

Safe idea, Kiba.  That way, if it does not get claimed by the eff - you did not automatically donate your coins to Bitcoinmail.com when you wanted to donate it to the eff (if the eff turned out to be unthankful/ignorant/not checking the spam folder from time to time ?!?)

Kiba -- please send me your email address ASAP using the forum personal message system. I'm in talks now to get this setup for the EFF and I need to loop you into the conversation.

It's in another thread for EFF donations. I don't have much time to do anything right now as I am in college.

Also, can you please post the email message from the EFF so we know what it says or does that violate social convention.

Um, yeah it's a private email thread so it wouldn't be nice to post it publicly without asking permission.

All they need now is the username and password for the account. If you send me your email then I can introduce you into the conversation. You can then drop me and forward them the info privately.

I can handle the rest of communication with the EFF, such as recommending that they setup a donation area on their website, etc, but you need to send the account info yourself since you're the account trustee.

Response I received:

Hi Aaron* and Mizery! It appears that the original message didn't make it to me (I get the membership@eff.org  messages), but we just heard from both of you yesterday. Smiley We're very happy to hear that EFF has such support in the Bitcoin community! What is the recommended course of action for us? Once raised, it seems that Bitcoin currency can be exchanged via PayPal or bank transfer, correct? Thanks again!

It's taken care of... kiba is continuing this thread and is going to send them a username/password so they can get their donations.

I haven't yet mentioned anything about having them setup a donations page yet... I think I'll wait until Kiba confirms that they have successfully recieved their coins. Once they're happy with the donation, I'll mention that there are more donations to come if they put up an official bitcoin donation box on their website.

Sweet! Did you ask if they would post an address on their website for future bitcoin donations?

I haven't asked this yet and don't want to annoy if you already asked.
