The Gift Fairy Video

Posted by Comments Off

The University of Connecticut recently released a video to help educate their donors about the impact of their private support. Created by students, follow the magic gift fairy as he demonstrates the ‘before and after’ effect of philanthropy at UCONN.

It’s purely coincidence that we have two new video posts within a week or two, but hopefully you’ll find it entertaining! Special thanks to Karen Santasiere at UCONN for sending this along!

Of note, this campaign was segmented with eight separate landing pages tailored to different audiences. I didn’t want to skew their LP statistics, so I didn’t include the direct links to those.

Most people read blogs from RSS feeds or email, so perhaps the design and layout of GettingGiving isn’t important. But I hated the old design and I’m pleased to declare the new GettingGiving site complete. For now. The snow/ice/blizzard and resulting time off gave me the opportunity to finally fix everything.

Working on this project allowed me to learn a bit about WordPress — more than I wanted. The last 30 days have been spent fixing some problems that were, ultimately, pretty simple once I read about a gazillion lines of code. At this point if you subscribe via RSS or email, that should work. If you use the iPhone/iPad app, (better known as GG BLOG in the app store) that should work too. If you just like visiting the site, that works as well.

If you do happen to come across any problems or broken links please send me an email so I can work out any more kinks. And, of course, I’m always on the lookout for interesting blog topics, so if you have any suggestions or questions let me know!
