What started as a genuine appeal for help for a stricken fellow radio amateur has now morphed into a refunding nightmare! Basically, since Tom KC0W does not want any donations, I must now refund everyone who took the time and effort to support this initiative. For sure there was a lot of support out there for this type of initiative and ham spirit is alive and well !
So far ALL who personally donated via paypal have been refunded.
For those who donated via the Just Giving page it becomes more complicated. In short I must wait 30 days before the final donated amount is available…meaning all 62 supporters also have to wait for a refund. This is not ideal, but it’s the Just Giving policy
Rest assured everyone will be refunded. Just it will take longer than anticipated. If, however, you prefer a refund now instead of waiting, I am happy to transfer your donated amount from my personal bank account back to you.
Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions. Meanwhile, I will now email everyone who donated via Just Giving and explain the situation.
Fundraising is never easy, but it becomes even more difficult when a person does not want any funds raised, hi!
