Adding messages to transfers

I noticed a lot of people sending messages along with tiny transfers to the FBI's bitcoin wallet. I wanted to do something similar, send a thank you message to Edward Snowden through his defence fund at 1snowqQP5VmZgU47i5AWwz9fsgHQg94Fa. How do I go about doing this? Is it simply the label box in multibit?

  • Sending a custom payment in Blockchain.info would be the easiest way. It gives you an option to add a message. For Bitcoin-QT if you go to help->Debug Window->Console you can send a transfer via command line prompt. There's a command that lets you send a message with a payment.

    For any other client I'm not entirely sure. Short answer: Blockchain.info custom send
