  <div class="don-share-facebook"></div>
  <div class="don-share-google"></div>
  <div class="don-share-twitter"></div>
  <div class="don-share-pinterest"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
  (function() {
    var dr = document.createElement('script');
    dr.type = 'text/javascript'; dr.async = true;
    dr.src = '//';
