Gloria, good to see you back!
As far as I can recall, I think what that one topic was about was that we were going to do a $5 drive, trying to get as many people we could to send $5- and after they did the numbers and calculated what it would cost to process the $5 donations, and send thank you cards and IRS forms, it would end up costing more than the $5 donation both in money and manpower hours.
So, I don't know if how Jaime processes the donations differently than they used to, but I'm guessing you'd be fine donating online [;)]
