I have never heard of them, but am highly suspicious of the "processing 
donation". I wouldn't send it. I would also be really careful about 
sending them any information (such as, are they asking for your bank 
account numbers? your social security number?)

You might also get ahold of the Robyn Van En center, which might not 
appreciate having their name used in this fashion.

If they actually turn out to be legitimate, though, please let the rest 
of us know!   : )
