Thankful Thursday: December 29, 2011

Welcome to our final Thankful Thursday report of 2011! What a year it's been....we are so grateful for the support of so many crafters and donors across the nation - wow!

Your final reminder: If you want to make one more year-end financial donation, please do so by midnight December 31. Paypal is available as a last minute option - there's a link here.

The questions are beginning - "Can I write cards off on my taxes?" While we can't give you tax advice, since we're not tax professionals, some general guidance: think of it like any item donated to any nonprofit, like Goodwill. The IRS sees that as a donation, and you and your tax preparer decide on the value; the organization gives you a receipt for the items you give. You've had receipts emailed to you over 2011; we'll email a year-end summary in a few weeks for you.

The receipts have to go out in small increments per day with the system we have; we'll let you know here when you should have received yours. If you haven't received it by then, check your spam folder, and if it's still not there, it's possible we have no email address for you, or an incorrect one, so we'll let you know how to proceed to get the receipt sent. And if you've got an early tax appointment next week or something, just email and we'll get one out asap for you. :)
