Can you modify the HTML of the page? If so, try using this:

<script async defer src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>

<a data-pin-do="embedBoard" data-pin-board-width="600" data-pin-scale-height="400" data-pin-scale-width="80" href="https://www.pinterest.com/marykayus/inspirational-quotes/"></a> 

That will give you a widget that looks like this:

https://jsfiddle.net/8mbLc9nr/

 

You can change the URL in that markup to whatever Pinterest board that you want shown.

How are you editing the page at the moment? Is there an online interface, or did they give you access to their server somewhere?

Drag it onto the page where you want the Pinterest stuff to show up. Then press 'Edit custom HTML' and replace the 'Click to set custom HTML' text with the markup I posted above. It'll probably look blank until you refresh the page, but I tried it myself and it turned out like this:

That should work. Either publish the page, or click the button on the top banner next to 'SETTINGS' and switch to 'phone' and then back to 'desktop' again to force the page to refresh.

You could just get the image location (url) and insert a picture where you want.O

Only problem is, when pinterest moves the picture somewhere, you get a broken link, or unrelated picture.

 

Since its a not for proffit community service group, I'd personally just 'steal' them, and comply in removing them if the owner contacts you about it.

 

No one ever used to worry about photo copying a page or picture for a flyer for an event; its the internet 'political correctness' gone mad again IMO.

Master_Scythe thats awesome info thanks heaps ive been instructed now that the lady that owns the meditation site would like to set up her own domain ,sorry for the huge font seems when i copied your name i copied the font to .

So am i better off to go to google quotes and steal images and quotes by just adding the url ,this is all new territory to me ,When i tried a tutorial on youtube i nearly started taking drugs again

oh cool the font didnt follow

Well, sort of.

Its always 'best' to link original content, and give credit.

But, depending on the creator, give credit where you sourced something, and be sure you're happy to comply and apologetic if you step on anyones toes.

 

what its 'best to do' is what you were TRYING to do, but if its just too far beyond your technical means, then as I said, I'd personally just upload the pictures, give credit to the original page, and relax.
