We've been working hard this past month to improve our site and we're finally ready to introduce the many improvements we've made. Child profiles are more informative and easier to get to, we've changed up or homepage and we'll rearrange and add new content to it every two weeks, we've made our site work as good as it looks no matter what internet browser you are using (e.g. Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Internet Explorer and many others). We've even made our sites URLs cleaner and more meaningful and added a video to help you learn more about who we are.



More Informative Child Profiles


We’ve been working hard to improve the child profiles. Now you can see all of a child’s siblings, all the videos they’re in and read all the blog posts they’re mentioned in all at a glance.


Want to go to your child’s profile directly? Just point your browser to http://alphaschildren.org/sponsorship/{child’s first name}.


Example: http://alphaschildren.org/sponsorship/asif.


Please remove any punction marks, from your child’s first name when going to heir profile page. directly.


Our New Home Page



We've changed up our home page. It's now a wall of photos and videos. Every two weeks we'll change the photos and videos shown on the homepage by choosing a few children that need some sponsors and featuring their video interviews on our homepage in addition to displaying some randomly selected photos. At the bottom of the page you'll find a list of children that we've featured in the current month. Hover over their name to see their profile picture and get a link to their profile page. At the bottom of the page you'll find our most recent tweets and blog posts.



Detailed Photo Pages


We've been working hard to improve our gallery. When you click a photo, you'll be taken to a page that displays the photo full-screen along with its title, upload date and embed url (for downloading and/or embedding the images into a website). You can even tweet about the photo, like it on facebook or +1 it Google+.



Detailed Photo Pages


Don't you just hate when you visit a website on your phone and you have to constantly scroll left,right, up and down just the see the content because the website doesn't fit your phone? We do too. That's why we've optimized our new photo pages to fit your phone.
