Through a "facebook charity"? is this something only on facebook? if so, its likely just a scam and no actual charity involved. Any actual charity should have its own domain that you can submit a donation through secure channels.

better yet
make ALL of your on line payments through a pre paid credit card
and
don't put more on that card than your willing to lose

I don't trust Facebook to do anything other than betray my trust.
