The gift of site
by Andrea Powell, HPCCR Electronic Communications Manager
Have you visited our website lately? If so, you’ve noticed a HUGE change, right?! Yep, it’s a brand new site and we’re quite pleased with it, if we do say so ourselves. Consider it our gift to you; a little token to store in your brain and pull out whenever you, a family member, or perhaps a friend are in need of information about what we do.
How about a quick tour?
When you first gaze upon the homepage, you’ll notice a series of stunning photos that are on a rotating cycle. Every single picture is 100% ours — they include patients, family members, staff members, or volunteers from our organization. These shots were taken by the amazingly talented Chelsea Bren, a freelance photographer who has been there to document our stories wherever and whenever we’ve needed her.
Underneath the rotating photos, there are three additional links that will offer more information about our services, tell you how to refer to our organization, and take you to some emotional and heart-warming videos that give you sense of what HPCCR is all about.
Underneath that? A short statement. A personal guarantee, if you will. It’s our promise statement and you can consider it a contract with those who need us. It explains who our priority is (hint: it’s you, our community), and what you can expect from us.
And then there is a space for noteworthy announcements, articles, and events and also a place where you can sign up to receive our organizational newsletter electronically.
Whew! And that’s just the homepage! Delve further into the site and you’ll read more about hospice care, palliative medicine, advance care planning, grief support, ways to give to HPCCR, volunteering with us, fundraising events, and community education events. And, honestly, that just scratches the surface.
But don’t just take my word for it. Go online and visit our site. Take it for a test drive and push the pedal to the metal. And then let us know what you think.
By the way, this is one time when regifting is completely and whole-heartedly encouraged!awareness, hospice, social networking comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
