Help build a bridge around the world

I suppose that all people that read this blog have a good life. I know I do. I’ve got people that love me, live in a stable environment and get all the chances to develop myself socially an culturally. But off course millions and millions of people on this globe live in much worse conditions.

The bridge is big a charity effort that wants to unite people in a creative way to build a better future for others. Everyone can help build a mile of a virtual bridge around the world and for each mile companies like Adobe will give one dollar to a charity that you care about the most. It’s a great initiative and there are already pretty beautyfull creations and words added to the bridge. Currently there are 585 miles built and 24317 to go. So, get creative, let your heart speak and contribute.

And on a professional note: the site is very well executed and the concept is strong.
We cannot speak of consumer generated content here, but a better term could be carer generated content.
Good use of audio and video. The messages that welcome you speak immediately grab your attention and make you clear what it’s about on a very personal way.
I like the visual style to, but it took some time. The colours are very strange, even somewhat ugly. This could be deliberate so the site looks more spontaneous and from the hart then it would when the site would look very clean an over styled. This style makes the barrier for posting graphics yourself a bit lower.

It’s also worth noting how they integrate MySpace. The Bridge organisation has their own Myspace and user are invited to link to their own Myspace pages and most notably to download backgrounds and banners for your Myspace pace.

  1. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. I do love the way you have framed this specific situation plus it really does offer me a lot of fodder for consideration. However, coming from what I have observed, I just wish as the actual commentary pile on that people today remain on point and not embark on a soap box involving some other news of the day. All the same, thank you for this superb piece and though I can not go along with the idea in totality, I regard the standpoint.

  3. I’m not sure where you are getting your info, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for excellent info I was looking for this info for my mission.

  4. High quality? This is extremely low quality. The facebook font is really a rip-off of a Process typefoundry typeface. Purchase some proper typeface for which skilled individuals put real time and effort into it. Of course it costs a bit, but you’ll be better off. And considering the amount of time, effort and expertise is required for producing typefaces, they are still very cheap.

  5. One particular Squidoo Lens, 1 month, $1,000 If you haven’t read this blog submit yet, you should. It’s the king of incredible Squidoo accomplishments, and tells how $1,000 was earned inside a single month from just one lens. Seriously.

  6. I truly wanted to jot down a simple word to be able to appreciate you for all the remarkable tips and hints you are sharing at this site. My prolonged internet research has finally been paid with good points to talk about with my family and friends. I ‘d suppose that most of us site visitors are extremely blessed to dwell in a really good community with very many brilliant individuals with very helpful things. I feel quite happy to have seen the webpage and look forward to plenty of more entertaining minutes reading here. Thanks again for everything.

  12. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  15. Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a totally different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

  16. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  20. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  21. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.
