Move It for Autism
FUNDRAISING/DONATION SERVICE ~ Graphic Design, Membership Program, Donations, Custom Web Development, Social Media, Content
The Independent Living Resource Center has been a long-standing customer of Lee Media Group. They came to us in need of a new site for an ongoing virtual fundraiser to benefit Greater Expectations, a nine month program created by ILRC. Greater Expectations individually tailors, designs and teaches job and organizational classes to autistic individuals from age 14 and up. The program is completely funded internally with no federal or state assistance and is in dire need of support to continue helping more individuals in need. Lee Media Group came to the rescue to help create a fundraising page called “Move It for Autism!”
With the ultimate goal being to raise funds for Greater Expectations, LMG created a custom WordPress theme, based on a colorful design that incorporated lots of moving parts. The vibrant site is easy to use and navigate on all screen sizes and mobile devices. Participants can choose to donate and/or create teams and schedule fun activities of their choice to support the autism program. Real time tracking constantly updates teams, events, individuals and overall grand total of funds raised throughout the year.
We also integrated social media in an Instagram feed that tracks all posts that include the #moveitforautism hashtag that is prominent on the site. Participants upload photos of how they are “Moving It” with the hashtag on the Instagram platform and it feeds fun photos into the site.
Lee Media Group needed to create a “one stop shop” for all processes on the “Move It for Autism” site. The creation of entire team functionality and the creation of the entire donation system were key features to attain an easy signup and donation process for users. To set up a team, users can easily create and manage accounts as well as promote their team/campaign. Once an account is created, users can easily donate to individual teams, campaigns and users. All payments are processed through the website directly and all donations go to ILRC automatically.
Other key features LMG implemented in the creation of the site are a “Testimonials” section on the homepage, which allows users to read through stories of past/current parents or clients of ILRC. The “Success Stories” archive, includes a video library of past clients “Moving It” in their own ways and the “FAQ” archive allows users to navigate to a single location if they have questions about the site or how to signup and/or donate.
Our team is proud to have built the “Move It for Autism” site and helping to promote such an amazing cause. We’ve created our own “Puppy Parade” and plan to walk dogs as our way to “Move It.” How will you help? See how at https://moveitforautism.org/. Every movement helps!
