    Hi Judy,

    Sorry to hear that. Your screenshots failed to display properly, so I will start with selecting the Free Text (HTML) field from the menu as shown below:

    then click the  button to go to the screenshot I sent to you earlier.

    Please try again and let us know if you were able to figure it out this time. If you need further assistance, just let us know.

    I have done this but for some reason the Donate button keeps acting as the Submit button. Help!

    Also, how can I make the Donate button align with the Submit button?
