Raphael is added to the Campaign

Note new Campaign Member Status

I created a new status, Donated, for my Campaign. I like it better than Responded...I want to know who actually Donates to my appeals. But this can get out of hand. It must be used very sparingly.

Household Page reflects the donation

Sometimes these rollups are processed overnight and you'll see the results the next morning.
