    If only their other services were that good. Or their TV ads. :mad:

    In all seriousness, this seems like something that will genuinely help a lot of people - I'm staggered if JustGiving take that much commission (JustTaking might be more apt). I see BT still deduct fees, but at least the fees look like the true cost. I wonder if we can all convince card issuers to waive fees for charitable donations?

    BT, I applaud you :T

    I don't often say this, but well done BT. About time we had a good alternative to these sites who leech of charities.

    Excellent news, I always hate donating via JustGiving as I know such a huge proportion will be shamelessly creamed off as profit by the owners.

    Why isn't there a link to the BT My Donate site in the news story?
