Please contact me at email@example.com for details of how to send funds by cheque, money order or bank transfer.
It is also possible to use some online money transfer services, such as Western Union, but please note that PayPal has rejected donations and frozen my account in the past, just because of one four-letter word, "Iran."
PayPal is an American company, a country where there are very broad restrictions on offering financial support to anything Iran-related. It appears PayPal has decided extend those restrictions to include customers outside of the US and is unable or unwilling to grant exceptions in support of human rights.
