The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) received more than $24 million in donations just last weekend after Trump signed an executive order banning people from seven countries from entering the United States.
And that number is sure to rise if this YouTuber’s genius method for sending donations catches on.
Nathan Pryor programmed an Amazon Web Services IoT Dash Button to send a $5 donation to the ACLU every time it is pressed. Pryor wrote a custom script, powered by Amazon’s servers, that automatically fills out all the information one would need to make a donation—name, address, and credit card info.
The rigged Dash Button is a brilliant method for sending out multiple donations without having to tediously input your information each time, but you’ll want to link it to a prepaid card for security reasons.
Pryor made his custom code available on Github for anyone adventurous enough to give a shot and help out the nonprofit organization.
If you aren’t familiar with the ACLU, its mission statement is to “defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.”
