Sorry, no. COD can be done -- I'm sure people will be handing me
fistfulls of cash at the event so I will be bringing my receipt book.
Though, it decreases my anxiety level if I receive the money
before-hand, of course. :-) One option would be to get a Canadian
dollar money order drawn up at your bank to snail-mail me. (I will
provide my residence address to anyone who is interested in doing
that.) If you choose to do this then it could be best to pool donations
on your end so that you can split the fee for creating such a device
across several donations. (If the prices are anything like what they
are here to do the reverse, I'd guess it would be about a U$4 charge.)
Regardless, I would appreciate it if people could at least pledge the
money first by emailing me to let me know what they are going to give.
I need to keep tabs on the health of the fundraising effort. Right now
I still need about $700, so there is plenty of room for donations.
Every bit counts.

Thanks for the organizing.
