*** Dinesh & Kavita's wedding present ***

OK geeks, here's an update regarding Dinesh & Kavita's wedding present:

We faced two problems. First, PayPal is currently not accepting any payments for private persons in India, which is very strange but something we can do nothing for. More information here.

Secondly, gofundme.com service has had problems to accept donations in general, problem has something to do with the way the site handles PayPal payments. In their technical blog they say the problem was solved two days ago but this seems not to be true.

I've spent a few hours now trying to solve this, calling PayPal, Western Union and so on. Long story short, the donations for wedding present for Dinesh & Kavita are now accepted in this site: Wedding blog of Dinesh & Kavita. You can donate in Euros or US Dollars. All donations are posted, so if you do not want to publish your name and / or the amount, please PM me here or use contact information found on the site before the donation, so I know not to publish the information you don't want to publish. I administrate the site, sending collected funds to Dinesh using Western Union Money Transfer, who has guaranteed that money transfers to India are 100% sure possible.

I had no problems once I figured it out. I guessed that it would be in either Finnish or German, since those are your main languages.

Anyhow, here are the instructions.

Important update!

The site is now updated and should appear in English.

You can choose to donate in USD, GBP and EUR. The payment page should now appear in English. Please notice that to get this working, the system assumes you are from USA if choosing USD, in UK if choosing GBP and in Ireland if choosing EUR (only English speaking Euro country I could think of).

Pay attention to change the actual country from drop down list on page.

Mike, it's verified and received.

For all who want to check the current situation, here's direct link to Who's donated page.

I think it's not right to list who has donated how much because we all have different life situations and means. A $10 donation from one person can be relatively as big as a $100 donation from some other. Publishing the exact amount from each donor would therefore be wrong in my opinion. Instead, the page shows the total amount collected and the names of the donors.

If the majority wants it, I'm going to publish individual sums, too, but at least at the moment I'm personally against it.

I've also checked the Western Union Money Transfer costs. To save some money in costs, I'm going to send the money collected by Sunday March 20th to Dinesh on Tuesday 22nd (it takes a day or two to transfer the money first to my account), and thereafter every second Tuesday until the big day. As a small pre-wedding present I am going to pay the money transfer costs. I'm going to attend the wedding, being invited , so before I then fly back on May 9th I'm going together with Dinesh to check to final amount transferring it to him.
