It’s that time of year again!  We’re raising money for MSF/Doctors Without Borders in Alex’s honor. MSF was chosen by our forum members last year and we’ve chosen to continue our support, as we deemed it particularly important given the recent natural disasters and the continuing health concerns places such as Haiti face.  We know our donations will go where they are needed most.

We’ll be accepting donations from Nov 1- Dec 17th.  The widget above is connected to the Library’s Paypal account. Paypal does collect a small fee from all donations made through the widget (3%). You can avoid the fee by donating directly to the Library’s Paypal account:

1. Log in to paypal.com
2. Select Send money and then click the Personal Tab
3. Click gift radial button
4. In the recipient box type: thelibrarians@alexanderskarsgardlibrary.com

All donations must be made in US Dollars (Paypal charges a small fee for currency conversion). Because MSF does not accept Paypal as a method of donation, the money collected through the Library’s Paypal account will be transferred to a debit card connected to the Library’s account and an online donation from the group will be made. An e-card will be sent to Alex’s manager notifying him of the donation made in Alex’s honor. We will post the online donation form and e-card in this thread on the forum once the donation has been made.

If you prefer to donate directly to MSF/Doctors Without Borders USA, you can donate through this link:
