Charity Donations

Hi everyone

I’m currently looking at Magento to see if it’s feasible for a prospective new client.  The client is a registered charity in the UK and as such have requested the following feature:

Donations: We’d like customers to be able to make a donation of the amount of their choice to the charity, either as a single transaction or as part of multiple orders (they might want to make one aswell as purchase a product or two, in the same transaction).  There’s an example of something like this here: http://www.woodlandtrustshop.com/delivery.aspx

I’ve searched the site and forums but not found.  Has anyone done this with Magento or have any suggestions for it?

Many thanks,
Reuben

I am very interested in the same feature. There doesn’t appear to be a module for this or even a product option that allows a user to specify price. I suspect I could put something together using PHP, but would much rather have an “integrated” option.

Reuben, I suggest reading through the comments on (http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/317/) as it talks about donations and may be able to answer your questions.
