Chicago Digital and Hope for the Day Team up for a Great Cause

Chicago Digital is honored to be working with Hope For The Day as their 2013 nonprofit organization to receive a free website. Hope For The Day is a local organization committed to using music and the arts as a defense mechanism to suicide prevention.  Hope For The Day believes that by offering education and expression through music, they can foster a positive change in young adults. Their ultimate goal is to reduce suicide rates while inspiring and empowering those who need help, to get help.

Hope For The Day and Chicago Digital decided to team up after our very own front end developer, Brian Mulholland, connected us with his friend Jonny Boucher, the executive director and founder of Hope For The Day. Brian, having grown up with music in his life, saw an opportunity to help a great cause and close friend.

Here's a preview of the design we created for Hope for the Day

Chicago Digital has created a fully responsive website for HFTD that will allow Jon and the rest of the organization to better connect with their audience and get their message out. By using Adobe Business Catalyst, we’ve made the process of updating their website simple and usable. We’ve also built custom web apps using Business Catalyst to allow them to add the following features and content:

Find Help

We’ve built a find help web app with Google Maps integration that will list out a growing number of locations and contact information for other outreach programs, mental health clinics, and more. Users can search locations by zip code and get information specific to their area.

Media Web App

The media web app allows their organization to add new videos, articles and press releases without touching any code. All they do is upload the media file or embed a YouTube video, add a description, classify the item and it shows up in the correct location on the website.

Blog

The blog is built purely through web apps to offer exactly the features and experience needed for Jon and the group to add new posts and engage their users while keeping the content fresh on their website.
