 Returns?  On a donation?  :-)
 The whole point of this is to allow people who are getting books
 from our non-profit organization to easily make an extra contribution
 along with their order.  There is no product to ship in this case,
 nor is there any concern over returns.
 I still haven't been able to think of a way to pull this off....
 For a while I was looking at [fly-list], but that only allows you
 to reference (from what I read) an existing catalog item, as it
 exists in the products database.
 I think I need a [fly-item] where I can specify an item at will,
 basically giving it a SKU, description, weight, price, etc....,
 and putting it in their cart.
