I'm trying to figure out if there is an relatively simple way to implement a donation thermometer on our site. Essentially I would need to grab the total amount that has been donated to a specific product category and display it. Making the thermometer is not a problem. Grabbing the total amount purchased in a single category is where I'm a little lost. I'm betting it can be done with JSON and JQuery or the XML datafeed, but I could use a starting place or some pointers.
Domains are www.LCHS.info and www.pawprintscalendar.com.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
