In the first day alone, we have raised $30.87 USD and already SURPASSED our minimum monthly goal of $28.00 USD. Fantastic.
That's wonderful news! I donated today as well. Glad to be part of the effort...it's a great feeling. :)

^ :nice:

I just want to remind everyone that if they would like their email added to a monthly $1.36 Campaign pledge list, to shoot an email to [email protected]. A donation reminder email will be sent out once a month. :)

Ok. Sounds good Allie. Then we could send the money to Save the Children on the second Monday of every month.

Oh my!

This is so great. I'll bet we end up getting national recognition for this... or maybe not. But either way - we're doing a great thing and it deserves the highest praise! Bravo, everyone!

The $1.36 campaign site has been updated: We now request that you include your coldplaying.com forum name and email addy in the 'comment box' when filling out the donation form. This is so that we can keep a detailed record of who has donated what. If you've already donated, could you please email [email protected] and tell us your real name and forum name so we can match you up with a donation? Thanks very much!! :nice:

Go to the very first post on this thread and click the link that says "the $1.36 campaign." Then follow the links and pay with paypal.

So, i have this question...sorry if it is stupid, but, does paypal keep a 2.9% of the total amount (the amount you send + the 0.30 USS) or the 2.9% refer to the amount without taking the 0.30 USS (the amount you send - 0.30 USS and then takes the 2.9%)?? :confused: was that understandable..? And sorry to ask this here, but i couldnt find the answer at paypal´s website. Either way it´s a lot f money...

Cheers Nadia on updating the 1.36 site, sorry I haven't been online in the past couple days to discuss like I meant to, but I didn't know that the immigration protest yesterday was going to take up my whole day! LOL!!!!


Sofy, I BELIEVE that Paypal takes out the 30 cents ON TOP OF the % tax. I'm almost positive that that's the way it works, however, I could always be wrong... :/

Hmm. I checked according to the balance info in paypal (the amount given and then the fee it takes) and if my math is correct it takes the 2.9% of the total amount given first, and yeah.. the additional 0.30 cents after.

For example, someone gave $10. It first took the 2.9% which would be .29, then add the additional .30 cents and the total amount Paypal took from the $10 is .59.

I guess that benefits them, since they would get less money if they took the 2.9% after taking the .30 cents.

They're clever bastards. :dozey: :rolleyes:



Oh well, at least it isn't THAT much being taken out, they're not taking half or anything.

DONATION TOTAL UPDATE: $57.50 USD!!!

In just a few days we have managed to raise over twice of what we need to sponsor a child!! How incredible is that?

But let's not stop here. I think we can push ourselves to raise even more and really make a huge difference in the life of a child and his/her community.

I'm so happy with the way this is turning out. You guys are awesome. :)

lol texas!

Thanx for answering my q:
So, if it is like Victanic said, if a person pays the minimum of 1,36 thru paypal, Sponsor a Child would get from that person 1,021...if i´m correct, though my mathematical skills certainly suck. Well, then, if it´s like that it´s not THAT much...
