Give to Burma donations website

Givetoburma.org

Givetoburma.org was conceived, set up and built in 24 hours. It is a one page website intended to take ’emergency relief’ donations to be sent inside Burma around the time of the Monks’ protests in October 2007. The website, as intended, was sent around ‘virally’ by email, and to date has taken more than $16,000 in donations.

Bordermedia initially received an email appealing for donations from one of the members of Youth Solidarity of Burma. We quickly replied suggesting setting up a one page appeal website that would take donations using PayPal. After a meeting an hour or two later, we set up a PayPal account for Givetoburma.org and designed and built the site, putting it live within 24 hours. Following this, we provided support and advice as well as helping with publicity and marketing the website online.

Update: The Givetoburma.org website was used a second time around during an appeal for victims of Cyclone Nargis inside Burma. It again raised several thousand dollars from generous donors.

At the time of writing, Givetoburma.org is second only to Burma Campaign UK on Google for searches with the keyword phrase “Donate to Burma”. It is third on Google for the keyword phrase “Make a donation to Burma”.
