Happy Canada Day. Opencity Inc. think giving a spotlight to charities is important and one way we can be socially responsible.
Here is a round-up of the charity spotlights we have featured since Easter, which have spanned 3 continents.
It has been truly inspiring to learn more about the work they do. They each show remarkable innovation in their business models and demonstrate how they have engaged passionate advocates.
We encourage you to look back at them and uncover ways in which you can also support their work.
- Macmillan Cancer Support
- Back Up
- WCSWR – Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region
- Cure Brain Cancer
- Milton Transitional Housing
- Autism Canada
We conducted research with the non-profits we have featured to understand how we can enhance and follow-up on the original post. Video interviews and annual follow-ups were among the top recommendations. Read the full Charity Spotlight research insights post here.
One important observation in producing these Charity Spotlights is disappointingly the number of non-profits whose website themes are not responsive. This means that your site visitor is not gaining the optimal user experience on mobile devices. We know that more than 50% of web traffic is now from smartphones and Google also includes the user experience in its search engine optimization algorithm.
