Could there be a better way to ring in 5 years of The 24 Hour Web Project than to pull an all-nighter with Partners in Housing (PIH)? We think not. The mission of PIH is to provide affordable housing to people who most need a stable place to live, while giving them support and a chance to reach their highest level of self-sufficiency. We were honored to help tell their good stories!
We had some new blood stepping up to lead the project. Tyler and Jenny took the reigns on the content planning side of things, and Elizabeth stepped in as project manager. Mayowa and Leigh partnered on photo and video. Abby headed up fundraising for PIH (because we do like to raise a few extra bucks for the nonprofit along the way).
Meanwhile, we all had gotten a year older... but turns out we stil have our "all-nighter" chops.
Grab your tissues and your credit card (so you're ready to donate) - then watch Becky's story. Partners in Housing is her "extended family." So moving!
Welcome to the brand new Partners in Housing site!
We're *nearly* done. The Partners in Housing team took a quick tour of the site with Jeb. With just under an hour to go, we're racing to the finish line!
We're getting down to the wire - T Minus 2 hours to go!
Kirsten Eamon-Shine is extra special nice! We thank you!
A big thank-you to a bud, and a donor.
Congrats and thanks to project founder Lydia for leading us through 5 years of this crazy, awesome do-goodery!
The sun is out (sort of - what's up rain?), and we're mostly all awake and chugging toward the finish line. These final hours are filled with development galore, content polishing and Q&A.
Do you have what it takes to handle a meeting at 5am?
We had an internet outage that lasted at least 30 minutes. 30 precious minutes of our 24 Hour Web Project. Here's how things looked at SmallBox HQ while we waited for the outage to be resolved.
Nick is doing his thing - making a responsive email design inspired by the new site.
Lydia and I had a fun sketching session to generate some unique ways to present the numbers behind Partners in Housing.
