Announcement about Vietnam Causes Website Upgrade
Recently, several upgrades to the Vietnam Causes website went into effect including new functions, layout and design changes to support nonprofits that are featured on the website and to make the website more user friendly for donors and volunteers. The changes are detailed below:
(Note: If your NPO is not yet listed on VietnamCauses, you are missing a great opportunity to raise awareness about your cause and organization. Please consider joining. You can register online or download the form here.)
1.Website link includes the name of the nonprofit organization
By popular request, the developers have changed the website address to unique NPO pages so that it includes the name of the NPO. Using LIN's page as an example:
OLD link: philoinhuan.org/npo/186
2. Option to add a Video Introductionto NPO pages
The photo gallery has been upgraded to allow NPOs to upload video(s), in addition to picture(s); although there is a maximum number of five (videos and/or pictures). This gives NPOs an opportunity to tell their story through video.
3. Notice of Upcoming Events
Now, any upcoming event notification will appear on the NPO's page and the Vietnam Causes homepage. And, once you click on the event link, a pop-up window will appear on the screen, in order to make it easier to follow the information.
This change will make it easier for visitors to the website to learn about NPO events.. Additionally, from time to time, LIN will share event information on the Vietnam Causes fanpage and/or LIN's monthly E-newsletter.
4. Inform and Update about NPO project(s)
New to the website, NPOs can now share information about their current and upcoming project(s) and include hyperlinks to an official webpage so visitors can easily find up-dated information and learn how to support your project.
