LAST GASP: An Update Regarding St. Anthony’s

A number of people have voiced interest in making online contributions so as to get St. Anthony’s bells back a’ ringing. I am pleased to announce a parishioner (and tipster) has erected a ChipIn page for just this purpose! Laura writes:

So, I still have alot of work to do on this (can do it Monday evening on a train ride back to the city) but a ChipIn page is up and running to raise funds for the bells!

What’s good about ChipIn is that it has a counter and shows how close we are to reaching the goal (I said $10K) and has a widget that bloggers and websites can add to their pages and anyone can add to Facebook. I attached some code if you want to try it out…

Obviously there are still some refinements which need to be made— but without further ado here it is! Help spread the word!

  2. Just wanted to confirm.
    The Chipin link is the official St. Anthony’s online contribution method?
    I was going to make a contribution but saw that the amount was still at $0 and wasn’t sure if it was being used.

  4. The woman who put this together is a parishioner. She had to go out of town for a family emergency this weekend but plans to have all the loose ends tried up (this includes resuming a dialogue with St. Anthony’s and making any changes to the ChipIn they want) when she gets back in town today. That said, I don’t blame folks for holding off until this page is fully up and running!

  6. Hi Everyone,
    The ChipIn page is up and running and the donations are already coming in! It’s so great to see the community rally around this cause. As Heather mentioned I am a parishoner at St. Anthony’s, but almost more importantly a fellow Greenpointer who misses things like this that make our community unique.

    If there is anything I can do to help you spread the word about this project, please let me know!

Tell me what you're thinking...
