I think making a donation sounds a great idea!

I won't be able to come to Sweden, but have fun if anyone is able to go to the awards.

Is anyone here good at setting this sort of thing up? We just need to be able to individually send donations to one account and then someone can make the group donation on the forum's behalf on the website. It doesn't need to be a huge amount per member, and if everyone helps out a little, we're sure to be able to make a good contribution. We should send out PM's to all members as well to get as many donations as possible. It's all for a great cause, so let's show our support!

In the admin section of the forum there is the possibility to send a PM to all members.

But I need a short text preferably written by a native speaker  ;D


Is it possible to set-up a separate Paypal-Account for this cause to gather the individual donors and then donate the amount to the Denniz Pop Award Paypal-Account?
Or can you have a separate account in an existing one?

Do you mean a native English speaker? I can do it if you like!

Yeah I think a PayPal account would be the best way to go. I've just done some reading, and you can have multiple e-mail addresses within one account, so you'd just need to setup a forum e-mail address (which you probably already have being an admin) and add it to your PayPal account. You can also set the account up to allow for payments directly from credit cards (for forum members who might not have a PayPal account). It seems you can setup a "donation button" that could go on the front page of the forum, and the website mentions being able to e-mail donation requests as well, which we would obviously do through PM's. The only thing I'm not sure on is whether you can do all of this with just a personal account.

Check this out though...

Said and done.
I've set up a seperate email adress: cheironmusic@gmail.com and added it to my Paypal-account.

Then I added a DONATE/SPENDEN button on the main site.

It says "SPENDEN" as my Paypal-Account is set to German.

Check: http://www.swedishsongs.de (you might have to do a refresh of the site)

I haven't found the option for receiving credit-card donations. Maybe that's not possible with "personal accounts"..

But nevertheless. If you could write a little text that I can use to email all members it would be great.  (in the PMs I can also add the link where you can donate)

I hereby assure that all payments will handled confidently and all money raised is used for a donation towards the Denniz Pop Foundation.
And I liked it..

I've sent you a PM turnaround. Is there anyway you can temporarily change your account to be in English? It's just that I went to the donation page and the whole thing was in German. ;D

I think the donation process you've got is fine, people without an account only have to put in their e-mail and create a PayPal password while putting in their credit card info anyway, so it's all pretty easy.

Great! I think the credit card section on that page is purely for the PayPal signup process only, but it doesn't matter. Also, one other little thing, the front page of the forum should say "we are having a fundraiser"... just to help you with your English. :) Let's get fundraising!
