Cause on Facebook?

I see that there is a tudiabetes facebook group, but no cause. That might be a good way to get people to donate. Thoughts?

Hi Carly,
Good idea! Let me look into this right away.

I just looked into it (it had been a while since I had seen it). The limitation preventing us from creating a cause is that the beneficiaries of Facebook Causes can only be organizations that have attained 501c3 status (i.e. tax exempt status). As you can read in the disclaimer below the ChipIn widget, we are in the process of applying for this status (this is something we’re hoping to attain in the coming 2-3 months).

So we need to wait until it happens before we can set up a Facebook Cause. Still, I wanted to thank you for bringing it up!!
