Can You Help?

Hey everyone - I need a little help from those of you who not as "technology-challenged" as I am.

A few people have suggested that we create blog buttons or donation widgets for Swim for Melissa. That way, you guys can post them on your blogs so people can donate directly on the Swim for Melissa website. I am ALL ABOUT doing whatever I can to raise more money, but I have no clue how to do this.

Do any of you know how to create these? And if so, could you please give a sister a little help? You can either post a comment explaining to me how to do it, or (if you REALLY want to send some love my way) you could create it for me!! I'll be happy to send you a jpg of the SFM logo. I think creating such a thing is a great idea, but I'm a bit challenged on how to do it.

Thanks so much!!!

Amy,

I'm going to post about this in a few places and see if I can get someone to make a button. I'm pretty sure I'll find someone & I'll send it to you!

Here is a button Amy. I'm going to work on getting something better, but I think it will do for now. Just take out the stars. =)

If you want the code to post it like that, you can shoot me an e-mail.

Whitney,
I left a comment on your blog. I know how to post the blog button, but how do I add the grab code to my blog?

Thanks!
Amy

Amy,

Have you thought about setting up a paypal account to take donations? If you'll send me an e-mail, I will send you the code along with the scrolling grab code at the bottom.

Hey-I have this on my blog, but it cuts part of the side off. Let me know if you know how to fix that. I tried to put it across the top, but it would only put it at the bottom of my page and I didn't think people would look that far down.
