Okay, Wendy, I've made my donation, paid for my auction goodies. Now, how, exactly, am I supposed to show "proof" to people? Help please!

Hey Virginia smile

For the swag that I have purchased, I've either shown in a PM or an e-mail--to the person offering--a 'cut/pasted' version of the PayPal receipt e-mail I received after donating...

I just copied the top of the receipt where it talks of 'confirming purchase', and copied some of the bottom in the 'Donation Details'...

When sending, I've gone ahead and taken my last name off of these areas after they were pasted into the message.

Not sure if this is the best way to go about this, but so far it has been fine for three 'transactions' wink

How would this work for a check?

Edit: I meant, how would I let the people know it's been paid?

AFAIK, Kathy is sending out receipt emails to everyone who makes a donation, once she receives them.

LabRat, is Kathy just sending out those e-mails to those who have donated by cheque? Do you know how frequently she is sending out new batches of acknowledgements? I made my donation last night shortly after the auctions closed, but have not yet received an e-mail from her.

It's no big deal; I have the receipts from PayPal. I'm just curious.

Thanks,
Lynn

Yup, Mike has it.

Lynn, no, I did see copies of emails she sent on Paypal donations, so I imagine it's all payments, not just cheques.

Also, seem to recall - in among the huge flurry of organising committee emails I received over the past week - that she was out of town over the weekend. Think I'm right in saying she planned to be back Monday. So that might account for any seeming delay in hearing from her.

The e-mails appear to be automatic for at least PayPal payments. I got mine within minutes of the PayPal receipts coming. I did it twice a week apart and the response was the same both times.

I sent in a donation at the end of last week with a CC to the PayPal site--and I got a 'thank you' e-mail acknowledgement from Kathy about 4 hours later that same night after donating.

Last night I sent in another small donation the same way and haven't heard back yet.

I kind of got the impression that it wasn't automatic because of this...with so much going on with the boards (fundraiser/auction/upgrade), figured things are just busy smile

There's an auto-response from PayPal itself. As Laura has done, you can provide that as your proof of donation. You can use MS Paint or even Preview (with a Mac) to cover up any private information you don't want to share.

Kathy is manually sending a thank you email after she gets the auto-response from PayPal.

If you're mailing a check (that'd be to ME! Send me a PM for details. :)), then I will make sure you get an email as your proof just as soon as I get your check. smile

Did I catch all the questions?

Hi Sara:
Where can we see the thermometer? What thread is it on? I don't find it here, but that is probably because I'm still having trouble reading the new board. Dark blue on medium blue just doesn't work for me. Black on blue does. Black on light blue would be better.
cool

Hi all! Yes, I'm sending manual thank you emails to everyone who has donated, but I was out of town this weekend (Friday-Tuesday) so that's why people who donated over the weekend had to wait a little while for their acknowledgement. And the text is the same because ... well, because I want to respond as fast as possible to everyone to show our appreciation so I wrote a message I can cut & paste. sloppy

So Mike's instant replies were because I happened to be online when he donated so I popped right over to the email account to send the thank you. smile

I've two questions:

1) Last year, I had written two fundraising supershorts. I recall that the rule was that such stories should not be posted to the MB for one year. Is that one year after the initial offer, after the fundraising goal was met, or after some other date? In other words, when may I post those stories to the MB without violating the rules?

2) I also noticed that according to the PayPal donations link, we're still $130 shy of the $2,000 fundraising goal. Is that accurate? If so, is the fundraising PayPal link still active and are we still in fundraising mode? (There haven't been any new mentions of the fundraiser for many months.)

OK, so that's actually three questions. Would anyone happen to have any answers?

Thanks,
Lynn

AFAIR, the Paypal link was shut down before the final donation from Groobie in the sum of $136 was added in to the counter. We did meet our target and the link is no longer viable as we're not seeking any further donations.

In the past, the one year rule has applied since the end of the fundraiser. I've checked back and Groobie posted making her donation on 4th August, so I think it would be logical to take that as the cut off date for posting your stories.

Hi LabRat,

Thanks for the info. I'll wait until August 4th, then.

Thanks, Susan, for that final donation. (That explains it; I had thought I had recalled the goal having been met, but I had just assumed that my memory was faulty.)

Joy,
Lynn
