Smart donations! Love seeing how an interface can better benefit good causes.
Alllllll myyyyy liffeeeee (que K-Ci & JoJo) I’ve been going to camp. It is something that has hugely impacted me. From teaching me to love and appreciate mother nature and her glory, expose me to new activities and people, and push me out of my comfort zone like performing on stage for skits and my first dance WITH A BOY!
This morning I went to donate to one of my friend’s who is fundraising to for UCLA’s UniCamp (a camp I volunteered for in college) and saw their updated donation website. Not only was it no longer written Courier New, but it had a smooth donation interface where it prompted you to donate towards tangible things such as: paying the cost to training 1 UCLA Student Volunteer and feeding one camper. Not only does this make the donor feel better about how they are helping, but they also get to see the costs associated with running the camp. Knowing this is wayyyy more convincing than having a random black hole goal number. High Five!
