about donations to help support this workfor the animals
in Chiriqui: lf you don't need a tax-deductible receipt, the best way
to donate is to send money to my personal PayPal account, which is
firstname.lastname@example.org. Just go to PayPal, hover your mouse over Transfer, then
click "Send Someone Money." (This will be classified as sending money
to Friends or Family.)
Again, if you
don't need a tax-deductible receipt, this is the best way to help
support this important project. The only previous PayPal method was to
send funds to the account of Spay Panama Animals Yes USA, a 501c3
affiliated with Spay Panama in Panama City. Donors needed to specify
the donation was for Chiriqui. Getting the funds here for Chiriqui
ended up being too confusing and cumbersome for the person in the US.
Sometimes I have not received the funds meant for Chiriqui, and when I
did it took a long time for the funds to reach me.
For example, Lee and India Sorenson donated $25 last April. It wasn't until December that they notified me they had been donating $25 on a monthly basis - and they asked if I had received the funds. After investigating, in December I finally received payment for 5 of the 8 months of their donations ($120.80 less PayPal fees) plus $24.16 from Howie Elders that he donated last October. However, instead of a total of $144.96, the net was $119.96 because the person in the US sent a wire to my US bank account instead of a free ACH transfer. The wire cost $25, which is money better spent for the welfare of the animals.
Also, I am still
waiting for donations sent via PayPal the "old way" from Carlos Grant
in Arkansas - $50 on July 30th and $50 on December 25th.
I don't fault the
person in the US who is responsible for sending the funds for Chiriqui.
I know it has to be confusing, plus extra work for her. But to make
sure I get the funds, and get them in a timely manner, please
contribute via my personal PayPal account: email@example.com. Thank
Both the Sorensons
and Carlos Grant said they will donate to my personal PayPal account in
the future, and Al Jan in Texas has set up an automatic transfer of $25
each month from his US bank account to my personal US bank account.
Transfers from your bank account to my PayPal account are free (thus
providing more money for the animals). When you use a debit card or
credit card, there is a fee of 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction. And of course

When you donate
via my personal PayPal account, PayPal will automatically send me an
email telling me that I have received funds. Thank you in advance for
future financial help, and thanks to everyone who has donated in the
past. Every penny goes for the animals.
Thanks and blessings to
all of you who brought animals to our clinics to be sterilized last
year and to those who came to our first clinic of 2014. We look forward
to another successful year of reducing the suffering caused by
