Australian data room developers at the company ansarada have reportedly been working to design and build a new mobile website for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s (CPA) “Steptember” fundraising initiative. According to a news release from ansarada, all its employees worldwide will also “walk the talk” as they participate in the CPA fundraiser throughout September.
The release notes that “Steptember” is a health and wellness initiative intended to enhance fitness while raising awareness of and funds for CPA, headquartered in Brookvale, NSW, Australia. During the initiative, teams of four participants use a pedometer to track their daily step count, or swim distance among other movement measurements, and record the results on the interactive mobile website. The target, the release states, is 10,000 steps a day for each team member during the month (office workers typically take 3,000 steps per day). The goal for each team is to “climb the highest peak” on each continent.
Ansarada reports that it participated last year and saw an opportunity to streamline the process and improve CPA’s fundraising potential. “We know as a company that we can bring our expertise to bear in helping CPA awareness through the mobile site and social media,” Jason Taylor, Head of Design, explains.
The mobile site stemmed from a future-focused scoping workshop with CPA. Members of ansarada’s product design and development team, including Taylor, Bevan Blackie, Tom Egiert, Andy Lovegrove, and Martin Sto Domingo worked closely with CPA’s Kate Van De Peer to build the mobile site.
Ansarada aims to provide ongoing support for not-for-profit organizations and causes through pro-bono data room services, financial sponsorship, and donations.
