Is it possible that she could suggest to the Cryonics Institute that they could set up an account in her name and we could donate directly to that account, cutting out the middleman but still directly contributing to this girl?

This comment on CI's Facebook page indicates that she and CI are in the process of setting that up.

When that is established, I plan to donate $500. (If anyone sees that it is set up, and I haven't followed up yet, respond to this comment.)

(ETA: There is now a fund set up by the Society for Venturism, and I have made my donation through them.)

A 3rd party quoted what appears to be an email from CI stating that she contacted CI. In the quote, CI advised delaying donations until they set up a donation account as previously done for two members, where CI could return donations if necessary.
