Red Cross Banner
Wondering how I got that Red Cross banner at the top of my blog?

Via my friend The Man over at GOP and the City, I made my way over to see Jim at bRight & Early, where I learned the following:

If you would like to add an American Red Cross donation ribbon like the one at the top of this page here is how you can do it:

Save one of these images and upload it to your server. [Note: Click on the images below for a bigger version of the image to view or save—click here or on the banner above to donate.]

To put the ribbon on the right side of your page place this bit of code in your css style sheet:

.banner {float:right; position:absolute; top:0px; right:0px;}

And place this right below the <body> tag:

<div class="banner">
<img src="http://YOUR_IMAGE_LOCATION/arc_rib.gif" usemap="#banner" border="0" style="width:200;height:200;" /><map name="banner"><area shape="poly" COORDS="16,1,57,0,199,142,199,185" href="https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation-form.asp" alt="Donate to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief Effort" title="Donate to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief Effort" /></map>
</div>


To put the ribbon on the left side of your page place this bit of code in your css style sheet:

.banner {float:left; position:absolute; top:0px; left:0px;}

And place this right below the <body> tag:

<div class="banner">
<img src="http://YOUR_IMAGE_LOCATION/arc_rib_left.gif" usemap="#banner" border="0" style="width:200;height:200;" /><map name="banner"><area shape="poly" COORDS="142,1,186,1,2,183,0,139" href="https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation-form.asp" alt="Donate to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief Effort" title="Donate to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief Effort" /></map>
</div>
If you need help customizing it so it looks right, feel free to email me and I'd be happy to help.

If you want to make a banner for a charity other than the Red Cross, make your way over to bRight & Early, scroll down, and follow instructions.
