Hello WPP Streamers. So I've quickly hacked a little payment gateway solution (using an existing Stripe account I have) so that we can all use credit cards to gather the resources needed for our proposed 1800USD Stream Scholarship 2017 donation for the folks at Child Watch Phuket. Use the green donation button above to complete your donation.
After we reach our proposed target, I will contact them first, and then transmit the funds via an ACH bank transfer from Singapore (to the same bank account featured on their website right now). I will proceed to request confirmation of receipt, so I can post it in this thread too. I will go ahead and request that the funds are used in their education program, and will also share screenshots of those conversations here too.
If you would prefer to donate to them directly, you can find the information to do that at: http://www.childwatchphuket.org/support-us
Thank you so much for your interest in this idea!
