    Can anyone give us a running update as to how the museum is doing in THE EXTRAORDINARY GIVE?

    I made the first donation at just after midnight ET this morning and I am curious as to how we are doing.

    I sense a glitch in the donate page. It doesn't allow donations from outside the USA, as it will only accept a 5 number zip code, and makes no allowance for anyone who can't give an American state with their address.

    This may not be a "glitch", but intentional. After all, the group sponsoring this event and providing the matching funds is a Pennsylvania entity. I was actually pleasantly surprised that they permit donations (which they will match) from outside PA. Their game; their rules. The NAWCC is a recipient of their generosity, not the other way around.

    But thank you for attempting to donate. Perhaps you could mail your gift and specify that it go to the HVAC fund.

    Harold, did you click on the country drop down? It changes from zip to postal code appropriate to the country.

    Here at the BOD meeting we persuaded one of our members fromSwitzerland to make a donation from a Swiss account, with a Swiss address, etc.

    It worked just fine.

    Back to my original question: Can anyone supply us with an update as to how things are going? Last night, there was a page that showed each organization, how many donations had been made per organization and what the dollars donated were, but this morning that page seemed to be gone.

    Any update?

    The tally board shows the final total raised for the museum as $18,500! That averages $159.48 per donator. Way to go everyone. Thank you.

    I was in Columbia over the weekend. It looks like the Lancaster match will be just over $2,700. So our total will be over $21,000! Thank you, everyone, for your support!

    I've learned that although the ExtraordinaryGive site stated that any donation would go to the NW&CM, it actually can be restricted to any fund or project anywhere you, the donor, want within NAWCC or NW&CM. Simply send an email to Steve (shumphrey@nawcc.org) or to Dana, the accountant (dneill@NAWCC.org), and specify where you'd like it and the match to go.
