Today I got a request from PBS for a donation of credits for 4 needy schools.  It would seem like a VERY WORTHY cause to me, so I have donated 5 credits to each of the 4 schools.  I would recommend that you all check your emails and do likewise if you have an abundance of credits as I do.  Does anybody know if there will be an ecknowledgement of these donations, maybe at the $3.45 per credit that the Bazaar charges?  It would help, at least a little bit on taxes, I'd think.  Any of you others who also donate credits to this can add a response to this thread so it will stay up on the first page and catch the attention of others.  Thanks!!   Winston

(By the way, anybody who wants to buy credits, let me know and we'll work out something----not the $3.45, of course.)

Winston - the credits are not deductible to the members, they are being given to the site, they get the tax deduction.

Wanted to add that its is a GREAT thing to do with your extra credits, give the gift of reading. Anyone wishing to give can click on the apple next to anyone's name and it will take you to the donation page.

I donated some credits also. I don't have a ton but it's a great cause and since I can't financially help alot of organizations so this is a great way for me to be able to help others out.
