Our Childrens Website is a Great Charity for Children
by Cherish the Children
Charity Website for Cherish the Children
The Cherish the Children's website showcases a local charity for children that a small group of social workers established in honour of a wonderful colleague who lost her battle with cancer.
With our brand new website and you wouldn't believe the difference it has already made in generating more donations as well as providing credibility that has helped to attract corporate sponsors for our annual CTC fundraising golf tournament!
You see, for years we had this pitiful website that a volunteer built for us years ago using a free hosting service. To be honest, we were downright embarrassed to share the link with anyone:www.cherishthechildren.zoomshare.com
Can you understand why? Isn't it just horrid?
In our view, even for a little tiny charity, we have found it critically important to have a professional presence, even on the internet.
The Charity bit the bullet and purchase a 10 page website including the design from SiteSell Services
It's called the "Do It For Me" website building package. The service was a match made in cyber heaven and perfect for a small group of volunteers working in child welfare who haven't a clue about anything technologcally related.
We couldn't be happier. What an incredibly wonderful experience!
Honlee, the Website Design Team Leader, was able to take our vague ideas like, "We'd like a logo banner that is kind of ethereal in appearance while telling a visual story of a child being granted a wish" and translate that into a dreamy, delightful professional yet child friendly site design.
She took all the random material that we sent her on the charity thatwe had cut and pasted from various letters and descriptions we had and
created 10 breathtaking pages that showcase the Cherish the Children in a beautifully warm and inviting light. We couldn't be more impressed.
Just take a look at the before:www.cherishthechildren.zoomshare.comNow, pull your socks up nice and tight and take a quick peek at the SBI transformation AFTER version:www.cherish-the-children.com
It's absolutely incredible isn't it?
(Did it knock-your-socks-off?)
Ours are still flying around cyber space somewhere!
It is an understatement to say that all the board members and volunteers are thrilled. A few actually got all choked-up as they clicked through each of the pages. One even had to stop herself from crying!
What's even better, in less than a week the new website already received 3 donations via the PayPal donation buttons as well as several amazing raffle prizes donated for our biggest fundraiser, the golf tournament!
We are all literally STUNNED
that something so simple like a website redesign has generated so much interest and provided the charity with instant recognition and credibility. Two local radio stations have even featured the CTC website on their charity pages!
Other than making sure that we invest our energy into finding ways to grant as many wishes from children as possible; this new website is the very best investment that we have made for the future growth of our charity . . .
Talk about making dreams come true!
Thanks SiteSell Services
for creating such a fabulous new website for us!
This new site is as much a gift to the CTC volunteers as it will be for generating the ability to grant many more wishes made by the children we work with every day to help make their lives just a little brighter.
