    There is something wrong at the IACFS/ME Vivint site. It showed $20 donated so far. I just donated $50 and it still shows $20 total?

    Those who donated, did you receive an e-mail confirmation of your donations?

    I got one, but it was filtered out by Hotmail's spam filter.

    There's another matching period coming up, it will be from August 2 at 2:00am ET to August 4 at 2:00am ET.

    The WPI has already reached the 2'500$, so donations there will not be matched anymore, but Vivint will still match donations to the IACFS/ME, the National ME/FM Action Network and the Nightingale Foundation.

    I don't know if i will be able to donate more, well, maybe 10 or 15$. But if somebody wants to make a donation, this would be a good oportunity, because Vivint will double it, up to 50$.

    For a doubling of donations, I would have donated again, but I guess you max out at $50. FYI

    Really? I'm not sure because it's a new matching period. I haven't donated yet, but when i log in it says "Amount left we will match from you: $50". That doesn't mean it would work, but i'm not really sure about the rules in this point.

    I just donated 10$ to the IACFS/ME now and it worked. They added 20$ and now it says 40$ left they would match from me. So even if you donated 50$ during the last round you can donate another 50 now, if you have them and want to do it.

    No, I don't think so, just checked it again, and it says "0$ amount we'll match from you". FYI

    Hmm... During the first matching period i donated 50$ to the N M/F AN under my name and somebody else 50$ to the IACFS/ME under a different name and with a different card, but with the same login, and now i could donate 10$ to the IACFS/ME. So clearly it does not only allow 50$ during the entire contest to one charity from the same login. I don't know why it's different for you, strange...

    There is another matching period coming up next week. The National ME/FM Action Network still hasn't reached the $2500 limit. Can people support them in the next matching period?
