Payment is by PayPal or credit card only. This simplifies administration and allows us to provide a higher quality experience. Prepaid credit cards are available at any corner store and no-balance cards are available through many banks. You could also ask a friend to use their card or account in exchange for cash. Exceptions create a lot of extra work for our unpaid volunteers when they are already busy creating this magical event. We want you to be able to attend, but please respect our volunteer organizers' time and only ask for exceptions if none of these options are available to you.
