Keep an eye on your computer's clock
Optional - add credit card information in Facebook so that you can pay faster.
Here's how - click the arrow in the upper right corner of Facebook, then click Settings. From the settings page, find Payments in the lower left corner and click on it, then click on Account Settings (middle of screen) then Add Credit or Debit Card. If you don't think you can complete this step before 8 AM, don't bother.
Right at 8 AM EST:
-click the donate button and make your contribution. You will not see any information about matching funds - that's ok. Facebook is tracking all donations and ACMF will receive information directly about the amount of funds that were matched.
