Wouldnt the donation be to WMA for WMA purposes, if WMA was to pay for
services or provide assistance to WMF would that not be WMA perogative. Once
we have charitable status then providiing the funds are used for the defined
charitable purposes it wouldnt matter if the funds where spent be it
Melbourne Sydney or San Francisco.

Case in point would be to find out how a Red Cross/World Vision type charity
collects money here as a charitable(tax deductable) donation specifically to
fund things in places like Indonesia or Africa
