No, Europe is not a country which has common laws.
There will be different type of organisations/companies in different countries.
Not all contries have laws that allow tax-deductable donations so
that will not be possible in come countries like Sweden where I come from.
There are some talks about it Sweden, but right now it´s not possible.
