Okay, I hate to be a Negative Ned, but don't do that, please.

Why? For every web donation, the campaign has to pay a transaction fee to the company that processes the charge. This donation will eventually be reviewed and refunded IN FULL, which means the money they paid for the processing fee comes out of other donations.

And, not only do they pay the transaction fee when you initially donate the money, they also have to pay the fee AGAIN when they send it back to you.

Stop wasting the campaign's resources.

He probably put in his real name as credit card holder. If so, it should go through.

Maybe the campaign could give donors a quote to show up next to their name? Say, for any donation of more than $50, you get your quote to show up on the widget!

Nope. "Freedom Fighter" is not the name on the card and thus makes the transaction one that has to be refunded/returned.

The name you give in the reporting block has to match the name on the card.

3. I am making this contribution (and paying this credit charge) with my own personal funds, and I am not using funds provided by any other person or from any corporation, labor union or national bank to make this contribution.
