my son Darren passed away on wednesday morning. i havnt gotten affirmative answers as of yet. id like to ask about how to make a memorial service into a more fundraiser/memorial in his honor to donate and help out other families while honoring the life he had. i have chosen first candle and new life family services as my charities and would like ppl to donate at least four dollars to first candle in Darrens name or donate assorted childrens items for new life to give to birthmothers and adoptive parents in need. they are both non profit organizations. first candle deals with sids families with research as well as grief support. i just need to know how to go about getting the word out to ppl so that my sons short life has meaning and purpose. i wanted to donate milk but because of the meds my dr has put me on to remain sane at this time i dont qualify to do that.

I would make a separate page (not profile. They have a special thing called a page).

All you have to do is logout from you and then on the main screen there should be a create a page button.

You don't have to log out. You can create a page or a group without your account that you name.

Also if you are having a memorial or an obit placed put "in lieu of flowers please donate...." I wouldn't ask for a specific amount. That's up to each person to decide.
