The apple is for donating to 'Books for Schools' program.

The wings are for donating to 'Books for Military' program.

The colored hockey puck thingys are for donating back to PBS, the different colors are different levels

RG is Tour Guide Volunteer

etc.  hover your cusor over the symbols  and they should say what they are.  Then look in the help docs, PBS Icons has a nice chart.

I found out what they all are, but do I have to do something to get them to show up here in the forums and on my profile?

if you did those things and they still aren't there, contact PBS to ask why.

Like Mary posted, if you've donated (or volunteer) for these programs and they are not showing on your posts you will need to contact TPTB.  Don't remember how long it takes to appear, but give it a day or so after a donation.

Ok thanks. I've noticed that they are showing up now.
