"Donations to U.S. nonprofits are processed by our nonprofit partner
Network for Good, an industry leader in processing online donations.
Their 4.75% fee is used to pay banks, credit card companies, to
distribute funds to nonprofits, and for other associated costs of
donations through Causes on Facebook. For a $100 donation, $95.25 goes
to the nonprofit and $4.75 goes to Network for Good. Network for Good
does not profit from this fee."

A blue version of the logo would probably suite better, I think. Are
there any out there or does anyone want to help?
