I can help you, but I need footer.php file of your template. (Appearance>Editor>Footer in admin panel)

There are two solutions for your problem.
<strong>First</strong>
Simply add

<div class="grid_24">
<p>Your text goes here</p>
</div>

to your footer.php file just before

</div>
<div class="footer_bottom">

Text will be immediately visible on the website, but to change it again you will have to modify footer.php
<strong>Second</strong>
Add

register_sidebar( array(
'name' => 'Footer widget area',
'id' => 'mm_footer_widget_area',
'before_widget' => '<div class="grid_24">',
'after_widget' => '</div>',
'before_title' => '<h3 style="display:none">',
'after_title' => '</h3>',
) );

to your functions.php (before "?>" closing tag) file and
<?php if ( is_active_sidebar( 'mm_footer_widget_area' ) ) dynamic_sidebar( 'mm_footer_widget_area' ); ?>
to your footer.php file just before

</div>
<div class="footer_bottom">

It will create new widget area. You will be able to add custom text using text widget from admin panel (Appearance>Widgets)

Hi.
We must know in wich file is your footer code, normally it's in footer.php, so we need its code.
For you theme, if you want to add a long textarea, you can do it like so:
<div class="grid_24">
<p>Your text here.</p>
</div>

but we should know where to put the code, as I' said in the begining.
