>From their FAQ: 
"You can make one donation every day..... our agreement with our sponsors
only allows us to count one donation from you each calendar day. A
monitoring system is set up to check this. So while you could click on the
button a hundred times, this would only count as one donation. In the
meantime our system would be slowed down and possibly overloaded, preventing
other donations from being made. Please note that we do count donations
received through company firewalls, proxy servers, etc., to the best of our
ability. We make every effort to count every donation as fairly and
accurately as possible. "
