  • The second best way to donate is through Paypal: they charge a relatively small fee, so only some of your donation gets skimmed off the top.  Click the donate button below and follow the instructions to pay securely with Paypal.
  • The third best way to donate is credit card: these take a pretty sizable cut of your donation, so this is the least preferred method. Click the donate button below and follow the instructions to pay securely with your credit card.
