Thanks for your patience while we sort out options for THON donations that connect BSD and Joe/Sue. Given the very limited time before THON cranks, it appears the best option is for each person to make an individual donation, then provide a copy of your receipt to a THON official. He will tally donations and provide us with a total. This approach has the advantages of being simple AND folks who have already donated can have their contributions counted.
The THON official who will tally our receipts is Anuj Updahyay; he is the Overall Donor and Alumni Relations Chairperson for the 2012 THON. His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. The key data points are the amount and a note to the effect that your donation should be linked to BSD. We urge you sanitize any other information that could lead to too much exposure of your personal information.
Couple of other points: Anyone who wants to have their donations linked to BSD can do so. I've received several e-mails from folks who read but don't post, and who want to support the BSD effort. Please do so if you wish. Also, feel free to donate to ANY organization -- this effort is not intended to exclude any other charity that deserves support.
We hope to provide regular updates, and would love to hit $4000 (maybe $4090?). Also, we hope to set something up that provides a venue for future donations from BSD fans to Penn State/Paterno-related charities. Stay tuned!
