I am a huge dumb-dumb!

I’m partially telling you this cautionary tale so you don’ t make the same mistake when you’re donating to my campaign.  (I’m not far from my goal, I need a few hundred dollars, and my Haitian brethren will be rollin in the dough! Sorta.)

So I was beyond beyond thrilled that Yoga Kerri was able to, with the help of her Yoga for Runner class, raise $103 for us.  Like beyond blown away.  She totally went above and beyond what she needed to, and I’m so grateful.  So I finally went and collected the rest of the Yoga donations.  I went to deposit them today, and accidentally made a huge huge boo boo.

Here is where you’re supposed to donate:

You're supposed to click the giant green button thing from my campaign to donate to Haiti.

Here is where I accidentally donated.

I clicked down here without thinking, which sent the Yoga money to the general Mercy pot, instead of to our specific campaign.

So at this point, I immediately called donor services, which was 7pm EST.  “CRAP!” I said to myself.  Because who the heck is gonna be in the office?!  Well someone was over there at Mercy, and they immediately went to the task of fixing my error and re-coding my money for Haiti money, instead of for generic funds.  The young woman I spoke with on the phone was so professional, and she got right on top of fixing my dumb mistake.  (Thank you Mercy Amanda!)  Once again, Mercy Corps proves to be absolutely stellar to work with!  Between the care packages, the emails, the notes, and now the fix of my $100 mistake, I would love to work with these great folks again!
