    Hello Drew. I very much appreciate your forecasts. I have tried more than once, including today, to donate a “custom amount.” $20 automatically shows up in the box and when I try to click to donate, it says that this is an invalid amount. I tried to pay with Pay Pal and I put in a credit card with the same results. I tried to do the same thing about a month ago or so and the same thing happened. I also tried to write you and it was rejected. I hope this one goes through.

      Hi Mary. Sorry you’ve had troubles. Thanks for being persistent, though! Can you shoot me an email at fi****************@gm***.com so I can help you troubleshoot? I’ve had other custom amount donations go through successfully, even today.

      And yes, the contact form had broken due to some anti-spam updates from Google that were marking everything as spam…it is working now, though.
