FMLA did donate the 1,090- we were the ones that had to get the funds from the
SGA, but it was our efforts that enabled those funds to be used for the march.
The purchase order came from our account, not SGA, and it was completely our
efforts that made that donation possible. I hope that clears a few things up.
