[NFBMO] FW: I need your help!

It's clear as mud!
I'm asking here as others are probably wondering as well.

They can purchase a ticket by writing a check to NFBMO and sending it to your address 
If you're going to ask someone to mail a check, why not tell the person Carol Coulter's address?

or Facebook if you have a debit card it goes straight into your checking account. 
This doesn't seem clear at all!
Are members being asked to take pay pal payments then send a check to carol?
This sounds like members are being asked to be a middleman and add opportunity for something to get screwed up from the purchaser or along the way.
Especially when we are so afraid to do anything financial online, how will the NFB of MO receive funds over any internet platform?

I was going to personally donate to the Rittgers fund but the NFB of MO is unwilling to make it easy and accept funds via the NFB of MO pay pal account!
Why are we unwilling to utilize the NFB of MO pay pal account?
If the quick response again is that online activity is illegal, keep in mind that the special Olympics of MO just gave away a jet ski to people who purchased raffle tickets on their website last month!

Below is a message from our Ways and Means Chair. It is extremely important to raise money for our affiliate to be able to offer BELL, Youth Programs, Assist members to go to convention, support our Good Works committee, provide scholarships, and carry out the work of the NFB of Missouri.   We need every member to help with this necessary activity of the Federation. 

There will be ways to chat and connect with others during the convention and this will enrich your convention experience; we ask that you be very intentional about using these opportunities to sell Cruise raffle tickets.

Also, ask your friends and relatives. Not everyone will want to buy a ticket but no one will if you don't ask them.

Please read Carol's message that gives all the specific details. Thanks to all that accept the challenge to make a difference to the work we do here in Missouri.

I am requesting that you speak to your friends as you network with them during national convention. Take the time and ask them if they would like to buy a carnival cruise ticket. The package is worth $3000 this includes airfare and $500 for excursions or insurance or something to do with the cruise. The tickets cost $10 each. They can purchase a ticket by writing a check to NFBMO and sending it to your address or Facebook if you have a debit card it goes straight into your checking account. This is very secure They do not see your information and you do not see their information. Please don’t forget that they can change things about the cruise with no cost to them as long as they stay around $1700. Thank you for helping Missouri affiliate sell Carnival cruise raffle tickets. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
