Building fundraising tool

Part of our fundraising effort has been the creation of a page, so that contributions to the project could be made easily from anywhere. Our fundraising page is now up and running and is available at:

To help spread the word, please share the above link with your friends and family. Please note that the donation page comes with an automatic suggested donation of $50. That amount is simply a default from and is easily changed for an actual donation. The suggested donation for can also be changed to 0. Finally, since the donation is going to the church, it is tax-deductible.
