Non-Profit Website for Puerto Rico Farmers
We're excited to announce the launch of a website for a nonprofit that we volunteered time with to help them get their website design working as desired. Check them out, a worthy cause to help farmers down in Puerto Rico.
Here's what they are about: Sisters Sofia Westmeyer and Astrid Piccolo founded the Paloma del Carmen Fund in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, the deadliest natural disaster in the United States in a century. On September 20, 2017, the hurricane plunged the sister's beloved Puerto Rico into a humanitarian and environmental crisis its people, businesses, and public institutions will be grappling with for decades to come. As natives of Puerto Rico with family still living on the island, Sofia and Astrid felt compelled to provide immediate disaster relief and long-term development aid. They wanted to do more than give people a handout — they wanted to give them back their livelihoods and help rebuild the island for a more sustainable future. At the Paloma del Carmen fund, we are fighting to re-establish and nurture Puerto Rico's small farms and fishing associations, because we believe supporting the island's local food movement is essential to sustaining its economy, quality of life, and vibrant culture.
We helped them clean up the design to work well on mobile and desktops, creating a flexing header and custom blog elements, as well as helping them setup a Donation Form using the brilliant forms from donorbox.org that are setup so that non-profits can easily create donation forms with recurring payments and ease-of-use for their supporters:
