    Hi Glen,
    You asked if the Latin American Relief Fund wins on behalf our Refugee Relief Project, should the donor go onto our website and push donate. That is one way to do it. Perhaps simpler is to go to PayPal:
    Here’s how:
    1 Log in to your PayPal account.
    2 Click Send & Request at the top of the page.
    3 Click Send money to friends or family option.
    4 Enter the recipient's email address and the amount you want to send. The recipient email you enter will be:

    You have the option to send a message to the recipient such as "I would like to donate to the Latin American Relief fund for the RR Project and ABBA.
    5 Click Continue.
    6 Review the amount, then click Send Money Now.

    Our founder, Sher Davidson, will receive an email from PayPal letting her know that you sent money for the RR Group. She will then click to have it transferred to the RR Group Project bank account. She will send you a confirmation and thank you once it’s received and deposited.
    Hope that's clear. Thanks for asking.
    Sher

    Glen,

    As you know I love these polls but I do have a request. Is it possible to get a link to these charities information summary? I would love to know a little more before voting.

    Thanks Robert. There are summaries in the nominations post:
    https://www.smafaq.com/discussion/69/nominations-open-august-2018-contest
    Generally a small amount of commentary as a comment and a link to the organization's web page.

    One of the things we hope to do with these contests is greater exposure for all of the charities involved.

    To add to this idea (more info), any charity should feel free to create New Discussion about themselves, in the Charity category, that will stay around longer than any individual contest or month. Discussions can have pictures, videos, links to web sites, etc and people could add comments, pictures, etc. For more on creating a New Discussion see, Creating Discussions and Comments.
