---- Charity links, a good idea or potentially dangerous?

Why don't you nofollow this link?
You'd be surprised of the SEO's that talk to me, that hold some doubts, as to whether they won't be penalized anyway with nofollows.
One operation that republished distributed articles over a network of sites, and was hit be both Panda and Penguin just put a site-wide no-follow on. Drastic and potentially self destructive action IMO.
My point is that trusting Google's guidelines isn't enough for a lot of people. Personally, I'd no follow it via a no-index page. Chances are you're ok - but who's trusting what I say. Who'd blame you.
No wonder the OP put the question out there.

This should tie the two together better for those that would prefer the headline dialled down, charity or non charity.
