Account Suspended for no reason?

So today I just attempted to launch my first YouTube video campaign.  I didn't do anything illegal nor did I support anything that would violate policies.  My channel is a gaming based channel that donates its proceeds to cancer research and helping end animal cruelty.  I got everything set up and submitted my campaign it said it was sucessfully submitted but then said my account was suspended right after I entered my credit card number.  It doesn't say suspended for policy violations nor does it say that it was suspended for billing info.  All it says is your account is suspended.  

 

As far as I'm aware, I've done absolutely nothing wrong...so why am I being suspended?

Well...with all the good cause / intent behind your site, solicitation of funds (for any cause) is not allowed to be promoted on Google UNLESS they are taxed except. And this should be clearly noticed / mentioned on the site.

I can't exactly edit YouTubes website to state that my stuff is tax exempt. I do however state in my videos that I donate it to charity. So I'm not sure if there is a problem with that or not?

If it is not officially tax exempt (and recognized as a tax except entity by the IRS) - then you cannot promote it.
