Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Sadly not... I tried.

"Only Certified Charity campaigns created on GoFundMe after November 3, 2016 can accept donations via PayPal.
All Personal campaigns, ... only accept donations by credit or debit cards."

That's odd. I donated to the Brian Champie fund yesterday and the charge showed up immediately on my PapPal account.

Update: Looks like clicking the Gofundme campaign link in the facebook app on iPhone works differently than from a web browser. No Idea why. It pulled the $$ from PayPal and didn't give me an option for credit card.
