You must be 18 or over to have a PayPal account and you need a Paypal account to add a donate button. If you are under 18, ask if a parent or guardian would be willing to set up a Paypal account on your behalf.

Both Blogger and Wordpress have step by step guides on how to add this feature to your blog.
And ALWAYS thank those that donate.
