I own two websites. Each one includes .Com, .Net, and .Org. Both sites are intended for use as portals for connecting hurting & suffering people with volunteers that can empathize with their pain (a new medical diagnosis / disease, death of a loved one, divorce, abuse, depression, loneliness, etc.
The 1st Website / portal is for use by senior staff who collaborate at the highest levels as a "Think Tank". This group continually expands and refines the charity's scope, and participation by other Visionaries and "Rainmakers" who are keen on turning a grand Vision into tangible reality. This group will use Mindjet Mind Mapping tools for conceptual design, planning, execution, and task management.
The 2nd Website will be a Social Networking portal where "Members" sign up and pay a small monthly fee (~$10 USD/mo.) for access to all features available on the site. Some of these features include: daily articles/ videos posted under the heading of "Bonds of Empathy; a Spotlight on Member posts/ videos; a highly secure way for Members to Volunteer to reach out, in specific areas, to others in need; and a secure way for Members faced with pain & suffering to solicit empathy from someone familiar with the troubles they are enduring.
Both sites are currently hosted at Webs.com.
The design should reflect an emphasis on "Community", volunteerism, individuals in pain & suffering, and Good Samaritans willing to give of themselves to ease the suffering of others.
