To whom it may concern.

Thanks so much for helping us out with donating kite gear to the FSU Kiteboarding Association! The donation process may seem a little bit complicated but we should be able to get there.

Attached is the 'Gift In Kind' acceptance form. Write down your details under 'Donor Information' and check 'Friend'. For 'Gift Information' you will need to email a recognized kite company and ask them to write an appraisal for the gear (be sure to include the condition of the gear) you wish to donate. You will then need to print the response with estimated value of the gear and attach it to the GIK form. Under 'Valuation Method', check 'Appraisal' and for 'Designated For' put down 'FSU Kiteboard Assocation' under 'Other'. You can ignore the rest.

The GIK form should be sent to:

Ricky A. Bailey

Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs

Florida State University

Room 313 WES

222 S. Copeland Ave.

P.O. Box 3061340

The gear should be sent to:
