    Hello again fellow hubbers!

    Just me with another question regarding what is accepted to include in a hub. smile You guys have been so helpful to me the past little while and I sincerely appreciate all the feedback, tips and advice. This half way relates to something I touched on in another forum post about asking for permission from photographers to use their work in hubs (and by half way, I mean, it doesn't have anything to do with the use of photographs, but it relates to that same hub I am still working on.. which is why I didn't post this question under the original forum post, but rather started a new discussion.) smile

    I have lined up all my photographs, with the permission of all the photographers (thanks to the kinds words of encouragement and advice of YOU smile but I've come across another little hiccup with this hub. This hub is about a particular animal in my part of the world that is considered a species at risk. The local chapter of a national charity has graciously given me permission to use some of their photographs and I would like to respond in kind by providing some addition information about this charity to readers to help show my support for this charity and cause. In a section of my hub, I've covered some info about how this animal is now protected and what readers can do to help. (I have a little side bar titled "How You Can Help") .. I included a brief profile of this charity and a link to their website..

    Okay, I know.. I'm long winded... I'm sorry.. My actual question is, are we allowed to provide links that lead readers to a donations page for a charity? (example, I wrote about the charity, provided some background info, and have a line something similar to.. "if you'd like to support this organization, consider providing them with a donation or volunteering your time..." with a link to their donation page included.

    Is this allowed?
    I tried to search around in the learning centre to find anything about giving readers information about where they can make charitable donations, but I can't seem to find anything. I feel like it probably is allowed, because the hub has a higher word count with lots of other information. It's not like I'm simply trying to solicit money from people, and it is a nationally recognized charity with a very long and respected history.

    Any thoughts?
    Thank you guys for your help! It is very much appreciated. big_smile

      Yes, you may do that.  But, don't put more than two links to that site on a single Hub.
