Yes, you read it right! Well actually, I’m giving away 4 websites. It’s something I started doing last year. I tried it out with a few of my clients and it panned out very well. This year I want to offer it to you, my homies! But before I get into the details, let me give you the backstory.
My web design hustle has been doing very well and I really wanted to find a way to give back to my community. For a very long time I would just be donating money week to causes I really believe in. The more organizations I donated to, the more I realized that, “Fawk! Their websites fawking suck!” I mean, who would feel comfortable entering their credit card number into a website that looks like it was built at the dawn of the internet. I felt like my sh*t would be stolen by some dude in Nigeria before it gets to the hands of someone that really needs it.
How did that old saying go, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and he’s going to open a sushi restaurant and eat good for life.”
I had an epiphany. I could just keep donating funds but it’s only a short term solution for many of these organizations. A brief influx of cash flow that probably gets spent the minute it comes in. BUT, what if I donate some of my skill and expertise. If I develop a brand new website with a modern design and a compelling enough UI/UX for them, it can potentially increase interest and donations for the long term. A more professional looking website definitely comes in handy when trying to reach out to potential donors and sponsors.
I tested this out with 2 clients last year. They both worked with non-profits and both non-profit websites looked like trash. Here are some screenshots of the finished products.

How it works
If you are a non-profit organization or know someone that runs a non-profit organization, you are eligible to getting a free website. The only requirement is that you are a legitimate 501(c)(3) non-profit company.
You will receive a brand new fully responsive website with all the bells and whistles valued at $5,000+. The only think I won’t do is build you a damn Facebook or Google (because obviously, these types of websites are worth well more than $5k).
I give out one of these every quarter. If you’re interested, you know how to get at me!
