Project Description

Hello there,

I am in need of a website for my non-profit organisation I started. We are called The Saints Network and we go out and help charities and organisations who have no money or ways of improving their lives. We do not take donations or money but have about 600 members who come out and help paint, clean build, fix and do what ever we can to help without money. These people come out on weekends when we set the projects up and they help out of their own time We are on facebook and have many photos and comments to show all our previous work and how this is affecting peoples lives in a positive way.

I am in need of a small social network website as facebook is not enough to keep members informed of upcoming projects and previous projects. I have seen "buddypress" and its seems this would be perfect with a few customizations to fit what we need. Wordpress and Buddypress should be good.

The domain has been registered ([url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]) and we are ready to start the website.

I would like the website to contain some of the following ideas:

Gallery (upload pics from previous projects)

Junk Yard (Members can upload items they want to donate, charities can request to have it, like a small classifieds section. Once these 2 agree, details will be swapped)

Forum - Where people can post info and topics (maybe this will just be a comment section)

Live Chat (people can chat to people connected to their network like facebook)

Project Management (This is where i would upload a new project coming up and people can attend, decline, comment, add photos etc)

Donate a hand (This will be 5 projects we are planning to run and people who cant attend and want to help can sponsor to a project to get it started)

Polls and votes

There will 3 different type of sign ups. one for companies, one for members and one for charities who need help. All 3 will have a different result but not major.

The concept of this website will be based loosely around facebook and people signing up, connecting as friends, tagged in pictures (upload to facebook at the same time) be invited to events, be able to comment, click attending or not and create a saints profile around themselves. Everything must be linked to facebook and twitter so we can really get the word out

The Saints Network is only in our town right now (600 members) but the concept is going to spread soon. This website just needs to have the simple features for now but as we grow we will need to get the website in line with what we need. I would to work with a website developer/company who understands about what we do and where we are going with our organisation. We are going out to help out others and would like someone to help us keep it going.

I have 2 options. I can either get the best possible quote and try budget for it OR allow any website developer or company who wants to help us out at a minimal charge (or free ) and allow them to advertise on our website to promote their company with links to their business. We believe this will become something big as in the last couple of months we have grown membership into the hundreds with NO media exposure.

Very excited to get this going ASAP. Please let me know how you are able to help.
