We’ve already told you that Justgiving is getting a new look and that some new features for fundraisers are on the way (exciting).
So, what are all these changes to the Justgiving website going to look like? Well, first of all, we’ve got a new logo:
You’ll see it in blue on our homepage and other information areas, but we want it to be a bit of a chameleon and change colour according to the company it keeps. So, in future, you’ll see it in different charities’ colours too.
We’ve also got a new thermometer:
At Justgiving, charity fundraising is all we do, and we want our charities and fundraisers to shine. So we’ve made a new thermometer that can take on the colours you choose. The starburst shape celebrates the wonderful things you do and it’s nice and eye-catching, wherever you see it.
And here’s how your Justgiving page will look (depending on the colour you choose):
We’ve worked hard to bring out the really important bits – the button that asks people to donate and the thermometer that shows how much you’ve raised. There’s also more space for your own photos (yay), and some new colour themes to choose from.
Plus, it’ll be much faster and easier for people to donate on your page, and they’ll also be able to choose a little icon to go with their name and message.
So how about sharing your page with other people?
As well as our Justgiving widget and Facebook app, you’ll be able to use the very handy ShareThis button to broadcast your fundraising through lots of different social websites and networks, from Facebook and Twitter to Digg and Delicious.
And what about making changes to your page? Well, we’ve also made your account much easier to use and added even more resources, including tried and tested tips from fundraisers on how to raise as much as possible.
And now you can extend your page for as long as you like, from your account – so if you want to carry on fundraising for a few extra months, you can.
We’re really looking forward to hearing what you think of our new look and features, so please let us know, emailing any ideas and suggestions you have to email@example.com
