I was just curious as to how the process works if donations are sent to the main address for the PF.

I belong to the CT group and mailed around 20 letters out to family/friends asking for donations. If they mail the donations to WA, is the group notified as to how much we raised (if the donor indicates the actual state)? Is the donor's name kept a secret?

Thanks [:D]

In addition to this....I had sent an email to the Ntnl Office asking but haven't gotten a response yet. My aunt made a donation and checked the box for a tribute card to me. How long does it take for those to go out?

I think those are handled by Carrie in the main office... Kris, I'd email her and ask her how much your group raised... carrie@preeclampsia.org

Denise, in the past I think I've gotten the tax letter and thanks from the office within a month of sending it, but I think that is too, handled by Carrie and she may be a bit backed up- I think she was travelling out of the country for a month recently. I'll bet she'll get caught up pretty quickly! Which email addy did you email?
