can I...

put a link here to a page at justgiving.com, where people can donate online to the national Autistic society (UK)? I'm going on a ride in the black Forest and trying to raise money for them. I've seen such links on other forums, but am not sure if it's allowed here.

Thanks.

Would donors be indicating that it is for your ride specifically?

FWIW I vote *yes*. My youngest son is autistic.


Why not put the link in your signature?

Yes (if I understand your question correctly). I have a page on the JustGiving site which is for my cycle ride alone, and the donations go to my chosen charity.

I think the only thing you have to be aware of is that you can only donate in 's. Therefore, if you want to donate 10, for example, you need to work out what that is in your own currency. If yiu wanted to donate $10, you'd have to work out the exchange rate and donate that ammount in 's (if that makes sense - I'm never good at explainging things). Alos, iif you donate from any country other than the UK, your credit card company may charge you an additional fee, because it's in a different currency. But this is not universal, it just depends if your credit card company charges for such things. Mine don;t, and I don;t think I know anyone else whose does, but that just might be luck.

Hope that clears things up. Any more questions, don;t hesitate in asking.

Many thanks for the input.

I may risk it and put the link anyway. I'll do it in a different post, though.
