The Promise to Remember Me website (http://promise.jdrf.org) was created for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF) principally as a platform for recruiting advocates for meetings with Members of Congress across the United States to help secure funding for diabetes research.
An interactive, dynamic Flash map on the site's homepage allows site visitors, advocates and other stakeholders to track progress near-real-time from the Promise database as meetings were scheduled and/or completed. The public site also included a blog (with RSS feed) which offers notes of encouragement from Promise leaders and other supporters like recording artist Elliott Yamin throughout the campaign; and a welcome video from Mr. Yamin, who served as the International Celebrity Advocate Co-Chair for the Promise Campaign.
The management application allows JDRF staff and grassroots leaders to coordinate communications, scheduling and logistics with volunteers behind the scenes. In addition, meeting managers can post meeting summaries and upload photos. Each of these summaries can be shared with friends and family via e-mail. A public Flickr photo gallery was also created to share many of these photos with an even broader audience.
“We're excited that the WebDriven team has received this award and we hope this recognition draws more attention to the good work JDRF is doing on behalf of children with Type I diabetes,” says WebDriven's D.J. Smith.
"Each year the WebAwards receives amazing entries from around the world that show impressive creativity and functionality,"
More than 2,400 sites from 40 countries were adjudicated in 96 industry categories during this year's competition. Entries were judged on design, copy writing, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation, and use of technology.(
