The practice of charity means the voluntary giving of help to those in need who are not related to the giver. Charities are often in the spotlight whether it be in the news or advertisements. This funding is carefully distributed and there are often more important things ahead of a generous budget for the website.
Today we have collected some really interesting and the best charity website designs. This list isn’t for advertising reasons, but if you ever have a few spare minutes while on the ‘net, check a few of them out.
