Hi I am finally back and ready to help as much and when I can. I have been ill but will always remember modest needs as long as I live. However, to comment on your homepage I do love it but one thing I think would help is maybe an example right up ther on the home page maybe someones story that is the most touching and maybe have a vote on that or actually i have read so many myself so many are touching. but put it real out there not lengthy but give someone something real to see what the money does. Just a suggestion:}

I really like it. I especially like the closing, about choosing between taking a child to the doctor and putting food on the table. That's a very real situation, and for me especially, one that brings home what it is that's so great about this organization.

I like the homepage. It's easy to read and the color scheme is not difficult on the eyes. There's enough information, but not too much.

The one thing I personally would like to see is perhaps a spotlight section. A donor spotlight and a recipient spotlight. The beauty of the internet is instant access to information. What better way to draw people in than to highlight real people on the front page.

Hi Dr. Keith,
I do like the revamped homepage. It is easy to read, no annoying blinking & flashing stuff. lol. It says what we need to know.
I, too, would like a spotlight section as Joan mentioned above.

On the request page I saw that you verify the needs as authentic. You might consider adding that fact to your home page along with a line or two about how you authenticate a request.

Great vision!
