I stumbled across an amazing fundraising tool via Steve Garfield's blog...
It's this cool little ChipIn widget that collects money for you...once you reach your goal (or a year goes by, whichever comes first) ChipIn will deposit the money into your PayPal or bank account....or send you a check. Your choice.
I signed up and started a widget for the New England SPJ journalism scholarship fund. Check it out:
If you can't donate any $$, you can help spread the word by adding this widget to your own blog. To grab the code, just click on the little tab that's above the Mastercard logo.
