Ok, let's see what we can do for the project today.

We've seen a lot of difficulties lately where it's definitely possible that the addition of a staff member could've helped get the servers back up with less of a delay.

I have put up $25 in a check that will be mailed tomorrow.

If you are willing to match my donation, please post your name here on and list the amount if you wish.

**Here is a link to the Donation Methods Page **

If you do not wish or unable to that is absolutely fine-there will be no criticism of non-donors in this Challenge thread.

This thread is not meant to spotlight anyone unless they wish to participate.

It will be locked Sunday night 8/17 when I go to bed about 10-11pm EST.

Thank you for your interest and support to the program.

I honestly don't know Bernie-I'll look into it and get back to you ASAP.

In the meantime, please consult this link for donation methods.

You may wish to consider using an Internal Money Order.

I don't have a credit card just a UK bank debit card (Maestro) I do have a paypal account, but both are no use here. Find me and easy way and I promise to donate £50, about $93, pity yesterday it would have been nearer $100.

I just donated in my "economic stimulus package" tax rebate. How's that for a government grant?

It appears there is a problem with the Credit Card Donations. I get the same error message using 2 different (and Good) credit cards.

Dear Friend of Cal,

We are sorry, but we could not process this credit card.

Update:

It appears to be working now, just donated $ 500 via online system

The kitties decided to share their kibble and donated $25.00 this morning.
I also noticed that some others matched our donations in the 'I suppose there is an excuse for no new work' thread.
Happy is the person who shares their life with a cat. (Or two or three or........) =^.^=

Have made friends here.
Most were cats.

I gave at the office.

Oh wait a minute no I didn't, I did it from home. Donated on the 8th (just before you started this thread) using the credit card link.

I got my receipt in the mail for last months donation which had a return address on the front of the envelope of Malmo, Sweden. I was most impressed.

Cheers,
MarkJ

By my estimate, we have raised over $2000 in this Challenge. WOW!!!!

If we can hit $5000 by Sunday, I'll do more on my own.

Uli will be helping me track #'s in case I lose anything.
