Hello! :) I have had the first question asked twice, and the second question once. The donation process is straightforward--three clicks, and you're good. It's even easier if you have an Amazon account as they are the "keepers of the pledges" until the project is fully funded. As to the second question, your pledges won't be withdrawn until the first week of November, and only then if the project is fully funded (oooh, I so hope it is!). Please keep the great questions coming!
