2015 was a crazy year for me, CLS, and the amazing Alpha & Beta testers who have joined the site so far. In the end the community raised over $16,600 for charity in 30+ events posted to the site and what’s more is that we’ve laid the groundwork for 2016. I wanted to take a minute to reflect on the many changes & improvements that have happened to the site, especially in the past few months.
What originally started as a calendar for charity events has grown into a platform with the potential to grow the next generation of digital fundraisers and I am still firmly committed to my initial pledge almost a year ago to NEVER take a direct percentage of donations raised by users.
There have been a plethora of updates and changes to the site (from changing servers to updated profiles to new search features) and I’ll be going over all those and more in the coming weeks as I prepare for the 1 year anniversary of when I started working on the site.
For now, I’ll share this infographic of the last year showcasing my journey so far, (Click to Enlarge), and you can read more about how I’ve gotten here and what inspired me on the CLS About Page.
Hope you all are doing awesome and I’m looking forward to what we can achieve in 2016!
