I would like to donate for this, but flipcause does not seem to work for
me at all:

I tried to make the donation several times, but after entering all the
details and payment details and clicking on "Finish", I either got a
message saying something like "Sorry, your session expired. Redirecting
you to 'Home'" or i was simply redirected to 'Home' without any message.

Considering the other comments in this thread, it seems like I am not
the only one who has issues like that. Maybe you should get in touch
with flipcause in order to try to resolve these issues.
