How to use Paypal to send money to LVAAS

Go to our PayPal link: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted_button_id=FBP8Y5VX5QXNW

If needed, the PayPal QR Code is below (scroll to bottom of page).

Note that all payments to LVAAS are donations and this is how they are described when working with PayPal.

When you make your payment, you will have a chance to enter a comment, message or note.
