We have a classmate who has had an extremely bad string of luck. Last year, she had twins that were still born and then just this month, she delivered a baby that required a partial liver transplant from the father.

As you can imagine, the bills are piling up and we are thinking of options to make collecting funds as easy as possible. I am trying to find out if they have a Caring Bridge site up that may take this work from us but I dont know at this point. Since our Reunion is over could/should I setup another "Reunion" but name it something else like "ClassmateX Donations" and open it up to Credit Card transactions to then be sent to the bank on their behalf?

Thanks for any help you guys can give,

I would do this:

1) Click Edit Site Pages
2) Click the Edit button next to Home Page
3) Place a checkmark to activate your Donations module
4) At the right click the "manage donations" text link
5) Describe your cause in the text area
6) Save

You need to have a PayPal account to use this, but if you don't have one opening one is very easy of course. This is probably the quickest/best way of allowing people contribute.
