Hi - My name is Beth Ann and I believe I'm on this list because your server once did a donation for a charity and we (A Leg To Stand On) were one of the charities in the running. We ended up not winning the voting contest, but thought I reach out to see if you guys were planning on doing anything like this in the future.I asked them to provide a brief description of their Charity and links where people can pay:
A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) is a New York based non-profit organization that provides children with limb disabilities in the developing world with orthopedic care they need - and we have already provided nearly 16,000 children with treatment since 2003. This means we are offering prosthetic limbs, orthotic braces, mobility aids, corrective surgery and rehabilitation to some of the most vulnerable children in the world to give them the opportunity to gain or regain their mobility. Mobility offers these children the ability to walk the average 3 miles to and from school to earn an education, to find employment later in life and live self-sufficient lives.
I'd love to chat with you or whoever might be best about how we could do something fun. We could do a competition between different factions on the server or just have a general goal. If you are already collecting funds it could be a dual campaign where 50% goes to you and 50% goes to charity, etc...
If this is something you might be interested in please feel free to reach out. I'd love to chat more!

We typically don't use Paypal because they take about 5% in fees so instead we use our better negotiated credit card fees of 3% through our account with Stripe. That link is here and at any point in time will tell me how much has been raised through that link, if you'd like any updates. But, if you think that will deter people from giving, let me know and I can work on setting up a donation link via paypal instead.
Here is the description:
A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) is a non-profit providing life-changing treatment to children with limb disabilities in the developing world. By offering prosthetic limbs, mobility aids and corrective surgery to children who would otherwise go untreated, we provide each patient the chance to get an eduction, live a self-sufficient life and positively impact their families and their societies by challenging traditional views of disability. For more on ALTSO's impact check out our Cool Kid series here https://www.altso.org/meetthekids.
Really appreciate it! Let me know if there's anything I can do to help promote and if you have any questions.
