(but please tell us about it, separately, so that we may expect and correctly attribute your donation)
to make sure your donation goes to a specific objective just indicate it in any convenient way: if its a cheque, make it out to, say, "EDA/Syria" or simply "EDA". By phone or bank transfer, tell us what its for. Online, there's a selection list.
Whichever way you donate, if you are a taxpayer please remember to OK gift-aid (which will add about 25% to your donation). If on-line there is a tick box; by phone just say so; otherwise include your address and a note "I am a taxpayer and I wish Edinburgh Direct Aid to claim gift aid on this donation."
