Thelifepod.com is an online fundraising website set up to gather donations to fund the LifePod, from Medicine Mondiale.
The service exists to facilitate online donations from members of the public wishing to donate money to facilitate the production of the LifePod.
These Terms apply to every Donor, and every Donor accepts these Terms authorising Medicine Mondiale to deduct the value of the donation.
Donors are able to donate by making a direct donation (“Direct Donation”).
Donors can choose to make a Direct Donation using a valid credit card. Direct Donations are immediate, non-refundable, non-transferrable and
non-disputable. The minimum Direct Donation amount is $1.
Please note that credit card based transactions are processed through a third party payment processor called Direct Payment Solutions Limited.
Receipts and Refunds
Donors are automatically emailed a receipt for every Donation.
We collect personal information about Users when they donate in order to send a receipt and fulfil a donation reward where applicable.
The User agrees that previous donation or fundraising history (as the case may be) can be published online (on our digital heroes wall). We shall not detail amounts donated by any particular Donor unless the Donor chooses to share this on their own social profiles through the ‘Share’
Donor Trust & Confidence
Medicine Mondiale is a registered New Zealand charity under the Charities Act.
Medicine Mondiale needs to raise $2M NZD in order to produce the LifePod incubators at scale and distribute to third world countries, every donation counts.
Taxation and Accounting Matters
We strongly recommend that all Users consult with their own adviser(s) about any accounting, taxation or financial consequences. This is particularly important if a Donor requires a tax rebate for their donation.
