Last night, we launched the new and improved Edge of Seven website! Please check it out at http://www.edgeofseven.org/. We’re thrilled to launch version 2.0 and welcome your feedback as we are still working on the “Stories” and “Donate” sections. Please let us know what you think!
We lauched version 1.0 of the website two years ago when Edge of Seven was just an idea. Over the past two years, after months of researching projects in Nepal, India, Thailand, and Cambodia, Edge of Seven has become a reality, changing lives. We hope that this website attracts volunteers, donors, and creates community around service travel once it is complete.
There are several important THANK YOUs as this website has been a year in the making. First and foremost, I’d like to thank Travis Hughbanks and Sarah Andrews (@atxsarah). Travis is our graphic designer and has worked tirelessly, for months, to express our mission visually. Sarah is our Edge of Seven messaging department and she has edited rounds and rounds of content to make sure we said what we meant and meant what we said. In addition, Sarah and Travis volunteered for 2 months this summer in Nepal and have given their time, enthusiasm, and talents to support our cause. There is not enough ink to properly thank you.
I’d like to thank my brother, Dan, for writing our first website and for editing several rounds of content. I’m blessed with several writers in my life and while service travel and sports are two very different topics, Dan has always been a fantastic resource and happy to help. A special thank you to my parents who have been instrumental in the development of our ideas, programs, and fundraisers and who are invaluable sounding boards.
I’d like to thank all 35 volunteers who traveled with Edge of Seven in 2010. Many of our volunteers are featured in photos or testimonials and by stepping out of their comfort zones to travel with a new nonprofit, they’ve built our foundation. And finally, I’d like to thank our donors who made our first two projects possible. You have given the primary school children in Jarang and girls of the Solukhumbu the greatest gift of all – HOPE.
If you like what you see, please forward our new website to friends or family who might be interested in volunteering, donating, or supporting our cause. Our greatest strength is YOU. We’re excited to see where 2011 takes us and hope that you will join the ride.
