Donations made cool - Give Directly, Tipping Point and soon Facebook

2 initiatives that make donations cooler:

GiveDirectly. 30 dollars per month, 1 dollar per day, you guarantee a basic income for a person in Africa.
Isn't it cool?
I personally feel great to support them. If we all do this, we can change the world.

The Tipping Point. I just discovered them today thanks to a post from David Marcus pointing to a Recode article
They present the donation in a nice way. They don't play on guiltiness. They pitch donations like a startup project. Something cool to change the world.

I still believe donations miss a bit of social flavor (blog post about it) to really explode.
If the donation is made as cool as exposing a cool live on Instagram or logging check-ins and runs, the world will get better.
It might come...  Just heard that Facebook will allow you to raise money and execute donations.
