The charity ActionAid approached us with a pre-existing Plone site, myActionAid, which they wanted to be refreshed, updated and enhanced. myActionAid is a social network for the charity's fundraisers where they can promote the activities they are undertaking on behalf of the charity and collect donations. New designs were applied to the existing site and a number of modifications implemented. New activity sections were added, such as "Right Now on myActionAid", showing people's donations in real time, and an announcement reporting facility. Also a personal messaging function, and facilities to show blogs, photos and so on, making the site user friendly, participant-driven and above all, effective.
