Help w/Creating Donation Table with Progress Bar


I'm really interested in trying to create the following table.


I know how to make the paypal donate button, but what I'm really interested in is the progress bar that tracks the total amount donated so far. Really appreciate any help given.

When a payment is made, you can either record the payment in your website or not. If you record it, and use a callback feature within your paypal account, you can match the callback's details with the details you recorded when someone paid and keep a running total of the amount received so far. You will need some kind of server-side programming language, such as PHP, Ruby, Node.js or ASP, etc.
