NOTE: There has been a problem today making it very difficult for supporters to make on line donations to our current campaign. The issue concerns a security certificate that just expired. The certificate has been renewed but will not be functional until approximately 1 a.m. eastern (Washington/Toronto) time on Friday.

To those who found there were problems making their donation, please don’t forget us. With only 6 days to go in the campaign we are farther from meeting our goal than ever. And to those who have donated - thank you ever so much for your generosity!
