Help for Haiti ~ Design, Build and Maintain

UPDATE: This site has now been closed as the campaign has ended. For more information on the national Haiti campaign please visit

help-for-haitiI was approached through a mutual acquaintance to develop a website in a hurry in support of an emergency fundraising initiative to benefit Haiti, a country in the grips of a cholera epidemic following recent devastation by Hurricane Sandy.

The loose collaboration of organisations, companies and individuals gathered for this project already had a Facebook page and a Twitter account up and running. The site was to act as a supporting platform for communication and to host the text donation line details.

The site was designed and built over a weekend just before Christmas (2012) with the text donation line going live on Christmas Eve. The text donation service is being managed by Oxfam. The site is run using WordPress and benefits from a custom design using the Headway theme system.

Post-Christmas the site is hosting details about an online Art Auction being run by Nottingham Contemporary and archive from a benefit gig held on 5th January 2013. The site will be continued to be updated on an as and when basis.
