    Hi Amy!

    Can you pm or email me the link? I would love to be able to support it here as it sounds like a worthy cause. What I don't understand is whether this is an individual that is collecting the money (either to support her blog costs to raise awareness or to, in turn, donate to another organization?) -- or if she is linking directly to an organization's website.

    The latter is absolutely no problem... but the former gets a bit tricky for approval (although I do have other ideas on ways to share.) The reasoning is that whatever we approve does set a precedent. For example, while this person most likely will use 100% of the money donated exactly as she states within her cause... another person later on may simply be using it as a scam. As horrible as that sounds unfortunately that happening repeatedly was the reason for our policy development on links for donations.

    Let me take a look and then I can help offer some suggestions on how to help spread the word!

    Thank you for your efforts!
