Press release: New website for YouCan

by Simon Leadbetter

YouCan were on the lookout for a design agency to build them a new website, when they got in touch with Thoughtful. Fortunately for them, they called us at the precise moment when we were seeking a final project to complete our Five Acts of Kindness initiative. Fortunately for us, YouCan is a worthy cause run by fantastic people so it was a perfect match.

The home page from YouCan’s website

The website was built using Craft CMS by Pixel & Tonic, who amazingly offered a discount to match the fee we charged. Our preferred host, Kualo, provides 100% free hosting to charity and we donated our time. So, all in all, there was very little expense for YouCan which means that more money can go to the young people they support.

In fact, 100% of all money donated to YouCan is spent directly on providing the services for young people. Nothing is taken out to pay things like wages.

We are extremely pleased that we have been able to help YouCan and equally as pleased with the result.

Please do visit their website and, if you feel inclined, make a small (or big) donation.
