Thanks for registering and collecting pledges! You can forward the link you received to your friends and family and ask them to click on the "donate" button. During the process, they can choose to make the donation in "honor" or "memory" of someone. You can ask them to enter your name, or a team name..etc. That way, we'll know who gets credit for the donations. And of course, you can still do cash and check if you like.
And yes, receipts are sent from the home office after the walk, typically within a couple of weeks. If a receipt is needed sooner for some reason, I can have one sent sooner.
Let me know if there are other questions!
Thanks so much!
