The 4th to the 11th of May 2018 was an important time for Donite. It was during this time that Hannah came over to Germany to spend a week with Phil to start making important decisions and create the base content.
Which charities and causes were going to be supported for launch?
It became clear that there are numerous good causes throughout the world and so the team decided that the most sensible solution was to break the different causes down in to categories. These categories became so important in the decision process for the team that it was agreed that they should also feature on the website so that the Donite fans could also use them to choose which cause to support.
A short-list was finally created and it was agreed that for the launch the following causes would be included:
- Trees for Cities
- Down’s Syndrome Association
- SSAFA – The Armed Forces charity
- Parkinson’s UK
- Macmillan Cancer Support
- Music for All
As Hannah had experience in writing she set about contacting the various charities and causes to ask them for the various pieces of information for us to include on the site. Then taking as much inspiration as she could from her brother Phil she set about getting the initial content together.
