It's for donating real money, not Kinzcash. You don't have to donate if you dn't want to, it's not mandatory.
I admit that at first I was hesitant to use my credit card online. I totally trusted WI, but wasn't so sure about Paypal. I went on the Better Business Bureau to check them out. Paypal IS legitimate and there were minimal complaints against them. Not bad when you consider the millions of customers they have. (Wish I could say the same about Ganz.) So after reading about them I felt more comfortable doing it.
If you don't want to use your real credit card, or dont' have a credit card, some banks will let you get a sort of "disposable' credit card, pretty much the same as the American Express gift carrds that they push around the holidays. In other words you can get one of those cards for only the amount yu want to donate. If a "thief" hacks into some account and steals the numbers, there wont' be any money left for them to steal and they won't be able to steal your identity because the "disposable" card wont' be linked to you in any way. I know you can get them through AmericanExpress but they usually charge around $7.00 for them. Bank of America offers them as well but I'm not sure what they charge.
Using one of those cards is probably not a bad idea, not just for donating to WI, but for any online purchase. There seems to be so much computer hacking these days and everything.
I hope this answers your question!!!
