Unfortunately, we had some issues with our online donation system
in September and October, due to annoying thieves attempting to use
it to test stolen credit card numbers. This means we weren't able to
accept more than a handful of donations in the past month. We've now
finished setting up new donation software, so please help us out by
joining today. And let us know if you experience any problems with
the new system.

We welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at
