PayPal Donation Button for Creative heART Challenge...

When I first mentioned the prospects of acquiring the additional inventory of the store that closed, we received a lot of great feedback and suggestions on how best to fundraise to make this project a reality.  One of the ideas we got was to create a PayPal Donation button.  At the time, I had this thought that if someone wanted to contribute money to us, they should get something tangible in return.  So, they might as well buy something outright.  But after evaluating what worked and what didn't work during the first run of the Creative heART Challenge, some of the points that folks brought up made sense.  For instance, what if all of the current items are above their budget, but they still want to contribute?  Or, what if they'd rather donate money directly to the cause instead of having that money go towards shipping?  Also, what if someone wasn't interested in acquiring more things, but wanted to contribute funds without strings attached.  So... at the urging of a friend and fellow blogger, I decided to give it a whirl.

While I would prefer participants of this fundraiser to find things that speak to their hearts and creative spirits, if this is something you're interested in doing, we want to thank you in advance and let you know that we appreciate every little bit!  Little by little, the bird builds its nest!  Every penny helps us get a little closer to achieving our goal.  

Here it is:
