To confirm, Middle Earth is a tax exempt 501(c) organization. Contributions are deductible, as provided by law. If applicable, please consider corporate matching programs.
One reason for choosing Firstgiving is that the site specializes in charitable contributions of all sorts, including one-off events like mine. The 3 Million Revolutions page will be available for contributions until September 1, 2007 and allows me to consolidate my on-line and off-line donations in one place. All contributions made through this site will go directly to Middle Earth. Another reason for choosing Firstgiving is that all the transactions are completely secure, using industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt all personal and credit card information so that it cannot be read over the Internet except by the processing bank. If you want more information, it can be found on www.firstgiving.com .
Donations can also be made directly to Middle Earth though at www.middleearthonline.org . However, I may not be able to acknowledge your donation, since the information is not forwarded or accessible to me.
Regardless of your preferred method of giving, I sincerely thank you for your generosity and support!
