I saw the tshuva on donating blood for money recently (I think it's #103?). The Jewishness-of-the-recipient criterion doesn't appear there; that subject is hotly debated (Dr. Rosner quotes R' Moshe that it doesn't matter, others' stories seem to say otherwise).

Were these places chasidish? Yeshivish? MO? American? Israeli? Any kind of trend you can describe?

comment What are the halachic boundaries between a brother and sister?
Right; you shouldn't daven if your adult sister is standing right there half-naked. But I'd think what's required vis-a-vis davening might be different than what's allowed in other settings.
