    We have an event over the next few months where professional designers and developers compete against each other to design new websites, or revamp old websites for nonprofits while putting in the code to make sure they are accessible to people of all abilities. 

    A lot of people do not know that unless your website is coded correctly someone who is blind and uses a screen reader to read the screen, or someone who does not have use of their hands and has to tab through a site with a mouth stick cannot access the site at all and are literally locked out. 

    As a nonprofit ourselves we want to help other nonprofits with their website so if you are in need of a new website, revamp your current one, or you want your website to be accessible please message me!

    Thank you,
