New Module: Be a Super Charity Squid!

Posted on Sep 08 2008

Squidoo has just uploaded a new module.

Check it out. Edit one of your charity lenses, click Add Modules, and add the new Donations module.

A lot of work has gone into this module, you can tell. Every charity is represented well, with logos and write-ups.

What It Does And How It Does It:

The module opens and looks just like a normal Text module. But instead of a box for you to upload an image there is a drop down menu full of all Squidoo-Supported charities!

So you pick your favorite charity from the list, and save the module as normal. Give it a title first though.

And VOILA! You will see a very good looking module all about your favorite charity with a big fat Donate button. Your visitor can enter their chosen amount and click Donate and they will be taken straight to Paypal where they can send the cash!

Good for Lensrank too maybe?

In the same way your lensrank is boosted when someone makes a purchase on your lens, it is quite possible that the new donation module is factored in to the lensrank calculations too. This is just a guess. But I see no reason why Squidoo would not reward the lens the money got sent from. Donations from your lens are certainly tracked.

So. Show off your donation modules!

I just added one to my lens about the super-cool charity Kiva. you can see it about half way down above the guestbook module. Check it out here:
