Thank you for being part of the ChipIn community! It is gratifying to know that it has made a positive
difference for many.

Not surprised at all to see this. Major parts of the ChipIn.com web site have been broken for months and they haven't been offering any kind of support for a long time now. I do really hope someone can take their place, they are invaluable.

Know any developers?

What is this service exactly?

It allowed someone to create a cause where you could donate money to.
For example we at GWJ have used it to collect money for a few good member's causes like medical bills or to help with a great financial loss.

It was an amazing service and it will be greatly missed. It's t times like this that i wish I had the programming skills.
