Safello helps charities accept Bitcoin for free

Swedish Bitcoin exchange, Safello, has launched a free service that allows charities to receive Bitcoin for free.

The new donation service is available in limited form and offers charities custom campaign pages that act in a similar way to Kickstarter but use Bitcoin to contribute and are completely free, with 100 percent of proceeds going to the charity.

Initial uses of the service include projects to implement Bitcoin in Africa and give children in Uganda vaccinations as well as a group that is fixing bugs in Bitcoin itself.

Charities can sign up to request for their own customized donation page in advance of the company opening up the preview.
