Actually, there is.  On the donation page, right underneath where you put the amount you are donating, you’ll see a clickable, editable link that says “Add special instructions to the seller”.  That’s where you put that it is for Sophia.  Thanks for your donation, Cara!!!

Hi Floyd,

Just a heads up - when you donate with a credit card there is no opportunity to specify what your donation is intended for.

Mine is intended for Sophia and her mom.




Very best,

Several folks have contacted me about how to donate to ECN (for Sophia Spencer or otherwise).  There's actually a link to donate on the ECN website (bottom right corner of the home page).  Nonetheless, I want to make it as EASY as possible to donate.

Donations to ECN (whether in general or specifically for Sophia) will be acknowledged in the ECN Program guide provided that you donate before Friday, October 13 because I will need to put the Program Book together at that point so we can have them printed in time to bring to Denver.
