As someone who assesses websites for their accessibility on a daily basis as my career, I would have to agree with David. I participated some time ago, and found the website to be accessible. As David said, choosing the options in the combo boxes was the way the survey was designed.
I also think it is wonderful of this student to provide a small donation to the Organization the participant chooses.
Just my two cents…
