SSSSHHHHH!!! This fundraiser is a secret! Don't tell Peter Sensei! The students of Peter Bernath Shihan are raising funds to surprise him with brand new tatami mats for his dojo.
To everyone who has donated to our mat drive so far, thank you very much!
However...the credit card processing company that is used by Fundly (Stripe) has reviewed our account, and all the supporting documents I provided that they wanted, and they have concluded that they cannot continue to support our account.
What this means: Your donations are safe! All donations should be returned to you within 5 days. If you do not get your donation refunded to you by then, please let me know.
This also means we simply need to change the way we're doing the fundraiser. I will be quickly reviewing our options, and I'll have another way to donate shortly.
I am very sorry for the inconvenience, and I hope you decide to redirect your donation back to us as soon as we determine the best way to receive them. Thank you again very much for your patience and generosity!
To everyone who has donated this week, thank you! You've gotten us more than a quarter of the way toward our goal in just one week!
Unfortunately, we have encountered a problem. Apparently, some digital thugs have found our fundraiser form and have been attempting to make several bogus charges, and the payment processor is preparing to close our account. Please do not worry about your donation -- this would simply mean that your donation would be refunded.
I'm currently working to dispute this, but for now if you try to donate, you may get a message that this account is closed or unable to process your donation at this time. Please be patient with us, and I will try to have this issue resolved as soon as possible!
Can’t donate? Please share. Even a quick share on Facebook can help.
The average share raises $97.
