UX DC Message Board › Let's use our designing skills to give back to nonprofits!
Hey, this is Molly from the Web Development Group. I just wanted to send you a quick note because I feel this is the right group since we are all lovers of web design here and this is a great cause. The mission of CreateathonDC is to allow a team of professional creative and technical volunteers handpicked from the creative community (managed by The Web Devleopment Group) to give a complete online makeover to three nonprofits located in the DC area. Our goal in doing so is to increase the accessibility of these organizations to the general population. With a stronger web presence, these organizations can expect to see a higher level of awareness brought to their cause.
The chosen nonprofits will receive:
• Complete graphical redesign of the nonprofit's website (and logo if needed)
• Implementation of WordPress or Drupal content management systems
• Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube branding
• A social marketing strategy plan for post launch
The total value of a makeover can be up to $25,000 in time and material which most smaller organizations cannot afford. This is a way for creative people from DC to give back to DC based communities in need.
