Walk for Water
Walk for Water is a community project raising money to provide safe drinking water to the African village of Kanthi. The project organised a walkathon as its key fundraising activity.
Derek's Web Design built the website for Walk for Water, which included:
- walker registration
- public profile pages for walkers to collect sponsorships
- a live fundraising tally
- administrator functionality to view donations, walker information and generate reports
In the weeks leading up to the walkathon over 80 walkers registered online, and the site processed over $34,000 in donations.
Integrated with PayPal, visitors were able to make real time donations, sponsoring a particular walker or donating to the general project.
The site now hosts an online blog providing progress updates on the work in Kanthi as well as an email newsletter to interested parties.
