Donation problem

Hi, In trying to make a donation I keep getting this error "Donations to this recipient aren't supported in this country. Return to Rare Ideas, LLC". Not sure what the problem is with PayPal. Sending from New Zealand. Please keep up the great work, and will donate when permitted.

New Zealand Laws

NZ changed their laws years ago which only allow donations to non-profits registered with the New Zealand government. Unfortunately, that means you can't donate via PayPal to us as we aren't registered as such. Or any other software projects that aren't similarly legally classified and registered.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Options

For right now, you can contribute via cryptocurrency. I'm hoping to bring some other options online this year.

Try Wire Transfer

I've setup wire transfer from New Zealand in NZD. It's linked from the Donation page. Love to hear if the experience works before rolling this trial out to more countries/currencies if you'd still like to donate.
