What's A Guy Gotta Do To Get A Kidney These Days?

I've got a few minutes here at E-93 while I'm on the air to answer something, I got this in the comments fron Randy at A Secular Fransican Life (by the way, I don't have spell check on this, since they use Win98 and Blogger had all the major gadets for WinMe and up. Not like I use it much anyways, so things will look normal).

"I was looking at the NTAF site and how to donate to your cause and I couldn't find your name.What gives? Is there a lag time between getting your name submitted and when it shows up online?"

One of the members of Team Kidney, Tina McDermott wondered herself. She contacted the National Transplant Assitance Fund via e-mail to see what was going on. Just to let you all know, we've gotten our first thousand, thanks to you guys. Its those doations that will help to open up our online donation pipeline. However, Tina told me that the person who handles that she recieved an email from the NTAF is out of town and will return this week to resume work. Which means, we may still have to wait another day or two. So, I'm apoligizing once again for the delay on this. I don't mean to put anyone thru the paces on this, but I hope this is taken care of soon. The faster it gets done, the less I'll have to ask for money and more I can get back to being loopy here. Oh, and if I got the details wrong, I hope Tina will correct me in comments.

Sam, here's what NTAF sent when I emailed them...
"Thanks for contacting me. I am out of the office attending a conference, and won't return until Tuesday, February 22.

If you are looking for additional information about the National Transplant Assistance Fund (NTAF), it is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides fundraising assistance to transplant and catastrophic injury patients.

To learn more about our program, please call us toll-free at 800-642-8399 (Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EST) and ask for the Patient Services Department. A representative will be happy to provide a detailed overview of services. We can customize an informational packet for patients and their families who are considering beginning fundraising for medically-related needs not otherwise covered by insurance.

Sincerely,

Judy Walker
Director of Communications"

Just so's you'd know!
with love, Tina
