Why We Love It
Personal Call to Action
The Cycle of Hope team dives deeper into the mission at hand with a well-written call to action. They lay out multiple hard-hitting statistics that portray the urgency for change and support, many of the stats focusing on people affected within their own communities. This personal call to action will help motivate people to sign up or donate that may have been less compelled to take action before.
Cycle of Hope created a visually appealing and organized website to effectively promote their event. They create a cohesive look and feel with brand colors, event images, and element blocks. Lastly, the fundraising event’s use of drop-down menus allows for easy navigation, so website visitors can find the exact information they need with just a click of a button.
