    I setup a 2nd savings account and synced it with Paypal.
    This way all I have to do is make sure the money is in the account and then purchase with PayPal.

    Works really well for me!

    I wish it was that simple, but Paypal will explain how to sync the accounts.

    From memory:
    1. Create additional savings account
    2. Login to Paypal
    3. Click "More" under "Request"
    4. Click "Add card or bank"
    5. Click "Link a bank account"
    6. Select Bank
    7. If not listed "Enter bank details"
    8. Check "Savings"
    9. Enter Routing Number
    10. Enter Account Number
    11. Click "Authorize and Link"
    After this step Paypal should deposit a very small amount of money in the savings account.
    Then you go to your savings account and get the exact number for the deposit
    Paypal will require you to enter the exact number to confirm it is your account.

    After that, when you donate money, just enter Gizmo's email address and the amount you want to deposit.
    It will list your bank savings account
    Just be sure there is money in the savings account before donating. I'm not sure what happens if you don't have any money in it.

    Guys, I really appreciate the thought, but don't worry yourselves over it, especially if it is requiring the ritual sacrifice of a live chicken to achieve.

    Its not so bad once Paypal is setup with your new savings account.
    I've had to do it twice and kinda got it down.

    This way if someone hacks my PayPal account they only get whats in the savings account, which isn't much.
