Love the Glow in the Dark T-Shirt

What a great idea! I haven't had a glow-in-the-dark t-shirt since I was a kid. Do you have a picture of the t-shirt? Will it have an adorable monkey on it! I saw a website that used a virtual photo booth to help raise funds once. I thought that was a stellar idea as well. I hope that this donation subscription really helps the Sound of Young America and Good luck!

How do I donate $2/month? Should I just do a one time $24 donation? Will I still get a poster? :) I liked the Nelly McKay interview.

Anonymous -- sorry that the button got messed up, it should be fixed now. If you have any trouble, let me know.You still get a poster with a $2/month donation, but not a special T-Shirt.

If I make a one time donation can I still get a poster?

Can you create a link through amazon associates to their homepage, so that you get paid for the stuff I buy there?

Jennifer -- There's a text link at the bottom of the righthand column of the blog. Feel free to use it!

hey jesse, have you already sent out the pledge drive gifts/tshirts/posters?

Most of the pledge drive gifts have gone out. About 1/4 of the posters are going out next week, and we ran out of shirts due to a miscalculation, so we're reprinting about two dozen.

Can you plainly state whether donations are tax deductible or not?

The Sound of Young America isn't a non-profit -- the administrative requirements for that in California are beyond my means. Donations are not tax deductible.

In order to get a super rad TSOYA shirt, what amount would my one-time donation have to be?

It'd have to be $5 or more per month.

No, a ONE-TIME donation.
