Donation Link added to Account Upgrades page

sometimes people want to send me a donation & have it go towards another users upgrade. with the current upgrade system there's no way to do that. (though I've requested it) I made this small template edit that adds a generic paypal donation link to the Account Upgrades page to handle it. I can then manually apply the account upgrade.

it's not a perfect solution but it's something. Be sure to edit the "send Mutt a PC" text & link

in account_upgrades add this to the bottom

Code:
    <div class="section">
        <h3 class="subHeading">Donations</h3>
        <ul>
            <li class="primaryContent">
                <div class="upgrade">                   
                    <form class="upgradeForm" method="post" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websrc" target="_blank">
                        <div class="cost">Any Amount</div>
                       
                            <input type="hidden" value="_xclick" name="cmd"/>                       
                            <input type="submit" class="button" value="Donate"/>
                       
                        <input type="hidden" name="business" value="{$xenOptions.payPalPrimaryAccount}" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="{$upgrade.currency}" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Donation from {$visitor.username}" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="custom" value="{$visitor.username}" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="quantity" value="1" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="1" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="0" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="cn" value="Be sure to include the username of the member this donation should be applied to." />
 
                        <input type="hidden" name="charset" value="utf-8" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="email" value="{$visitor.email}" />
                       
                        <input type="hidden" name="return" value="{$requestPaths.fullBasePath}{xen:link account/upgrade-purchase}" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="cancel_return" value="{$requestPaths.fullBasePath}{xen:link index}" />
                        <input type="hidden" name="notify_url" value="{$xenOptions.boardUrl}/payment_callback.php" />
                       
                    </form>
                   
                    <div class="upgradeMain">
                        <h4 class="title">Make a donation</h4>
                       
                            <div class="description">If you would like to donate a different amount or make another user a supporter you can use this link to send a donation.
                            Account changes will NOT be automatically handled like they are with Account Upgrades above.
                            Be sure to <a href="./index.php?conversations/add&to=Mutt" target="_blank">send Mutt a Private Conversation</a> with your paypal email, transaction #, amount, and explanation of what the donation is for so he can find and manually handle it.
                            </div>
                       
                    </div>
 
                </div>
            </li>
        </ul>
    </div>
it will pick up your paypal info from the account upgrade settings. the note field doesn't seem to be displaying. if anyone can fix that, I'd love it.
