COSH - How to donate - current ways.

Keeping admins costs, any spend on anything that is not help for people in need, to an absolute minimum was and will remain a COSH 'guiding principal'. It irks me that every time I use a card to spend your money on help for those in need someone, typically mastercard or visa, is actually getting a portion of your money. I know of no practical way to avoid this. I am aware however of ways to get your money to me that can avoid such rake offs.

To date the route I have used for getting money in, is to use my personal bank accounts in my own name, coupled with total transparency of monies donated. This has been done as a matter of expediency in the face of urgent need. How long it may be possible to continue to use these routes I do not know. I have made what efforts I can to 'head off' potential future issues with doing this but it is far from certain how long these routes will remain functional going forward. For now I will continue to use them and cross any problem bridges as and when I come to them.

All donations made will be publicly listed here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... ingle=true All these routes should have a 'notes' section as part of the transfer process. If you wish to be listed publicly on this list by either a 'nickname' or by a 'DonerID number' unique to you then please put this request in the notes when making a transfer. Otherwise you will be listed with the name showing on the trnasfer.

For Revolut card holders

Direct revolut to revolut transfer. Preferably please convert any non TL donations in to TL first before sending your donation. To make a revolut to revolut transfer first add me (erol ziya) to your phones address book that has the revolut app on it with my mobile number as +90 548 870 0237. Once it is in the phones address book you should just be able to send me TL funds directly from the revolut app.

This method is zero cost (rake off) and near instant for transfer to execute.

GBP - Sterling from UK Sterling account

Sort Code: 04-00-75
Account Number: 10082077
Beneficiary: Erol Ziya

This method is zero cost and near instant.

EUR - Euros IBAN transfer from Euro account

IBAN: GB83 REVO 0099 7019 7240 17
BIC: REVOGB21
Beneficiary: Erol Ziya

This method is I believe zero cost but may take 3 days to execute but I am not certain on this.

USD - US Dollars from dollar account

IBAN: GB83 REVO 0099 7019 7240 17
BIC: REVOGB21
Beneficiary: Erol Ziya

I have no idea what sending cost may be, I understand there would be no receiving cost and I have no idea how long such a transfer might take to execute.

TRY - Turkish Lira

IBAN: GB83 REVO 0099 7019 7240 17
BIC: REVOGB21
Beneficiary: Erol Ziya

I have no idea what sending cost may be, I understand there would be no receiving cost and I have no idea how long such a transfer might take to execute.

Paypal

[email protected]

If using Paypal please send as money using the 'to friend' option and not 'to pay for an item or service'. This should avoid fees. My Paypal account is GBP/Sterling and I suspect any sending of currencies other than GBP will be converted by Paypal at less than optimal rates compared with doing such conversion within revolut or via services like transferwise.

For donations in currencies other than these or if you have a TL account with IsBank please PM me or email me at [email protected]

We are currently down to ‭3,568.3‬0 TL left in the 'bank'. We have stock to cover this week deliveries and with funds remaining we can probably cover the week after but after that we will be out of money if we can not raise more funds. We are exploring and hoping to source help on the 'input' side from various others sources and organisations rather than just relying on donations but it is not yet certain this will happen or if it does to what degree we can cover our supply needs this way. So I am making an appeal for more donations. We are turning money in to real world help , I believe more efficiently and quicker with better targeting it to the most need than any one else out there that I am aware of. Even the smallest amount makes such a real world difference. You can remain anonymous so please do not be put of from donating even 10TL if you can. Thanks.
