With the popular fundraising site ChipIn.com closing, many fundraisers are looking for a comparable site which is free and allows them to fundraise like ChipIn had. ChipIn provided many of the same features offered by competing sites, except that it was free and provided the much loved “ChipIn Fundraising Widget”.
For those who might not be familiar with a fundraising widget. It is a small application interface which allows users to embed a donate button onto their personal web pages. They create a direct link to the users fundraising home page, and are able to accept donations directly, without leaving the page. They can be easily embedded into a personal blog or web page, using a simple HTML code.
The YouCaring.com Widget will allow for users to track their donation progress, receive donations, and allow more people to see their fundraiser. YouCaring is the only free online fundraising site that is offering a fundraising widget, and the same functionality as ChipIn. The fundraising widget will be primarily for users who maintain a secondary web page, like a blog or a personal website. Who will be able to add the widget as a feature to their won site.
