AWESOME international donation update…

Ok international friends, guess what?

It looks like is now set up for your donation using Paypal. Florence (who is in The Netherlands) tested it out and it went through. Click the donate button on the badge and it will walk you through the process, giving you the option to checkout with Paypal. The donation isn’t complete until you click the final finish button.

So now it is your turn!


Go WORLD-WIDE team, go.

    One of my sons is intellectually impaired and displays some of the characteristics of autism. I am behind this cause 100% and my donation has already gone through. Thank you Ali for doing so much for a fantastic cause and of course for the children.

    That’s good news….. but how do I make a donation – whenever I click on the button, I see a bunch of blank boxes where I need to input some info… how do I make sure it’s credited to your badge, Ali? Thanks!

    As I site at my Mac catching up with the weeks events (at 3am), I am absolutely amazed at the goals that can be achieved when we all combine our forces together. SixDegrees has been an incredible idea from the start and your success with the badge has proven it! As I struggle through this night (one kid with the all night throw-ups), I am bolstered by what you have done – something larger than oneself. Somthing that can lift us out of our every day perspective, ease the burdens on our shoulders, show us the bigger picture. Thanks Ali for all you do for the kids with Autism and special needs (not just your own) and thank you for what you do for me personally!!
    All my best AGAIN! Marcia

    Hi Ali,, long time reader here. I knew that today I had to get online early and make my donation since it’s the 31st. So happy that paypal was an option makes it quick and easy to donate from here in New Jersey.
    So happy to see that it’s international now even if it’s at the day or so,, but whose to say people have to stop donating after today right,, go international team go!!!
