Dear friends, family, and followers of Hearts for Haragama,
First and foremost, thank you for being patient as we worked on the PayPal situation. Its really great to know that we have so many loyal supporters out there.
After about a months worth of negotiation we’ve come to the conclusion that we no longer can trust PayPal to help us with our organization. Unfortunately, after collecting close to US$8,000 in donation money in merely a few weeks, the PayPal corporation decided to freeze our account and prevent us from withdrawing any of this money. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, especially after witnessing all of your generosity and knowing where all of this money could be going towards, but we have not lost hope! With a bit of hard work and patience, we’re positive we can get things going in the right direction once again.
For those of you who have donated, we will contact you personally with further information about your donation and our decision to part ways with PayPal. Please check your email within the next week for more details!
For those of you who still would like to donate, you can still donate via bank transfer. It’s a bit more work than PayPal, seeing as how you actually need to physically go to your local bank, but when you’re there the process should be quick and painless. All you need to do is present our account information (below) and ask the bank teller how to transfer money to an overseas account and they will help you from there.
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We hope you understand and will continue to give us, Tsukasa, and the students of Haragama Kindgarten your support.
Billy, Darren, Danny, Haruka, Kevin, Sayaka, and Vinnie.
