New tidings at U.P
A project about daily change can’t stay the same forever, right? Well now is the time for that makeover. We will be rolling out the new U.P website this week, so please bear with all the minor hiccups while we get there. What you will see is not just a design revamp, but also a categorical reorganization of the past 2 years of U.P adventures. Add to that a much-needed upgrade of our technology framework to accommodate for more flexible content updates, and presto, welcome to U.P’s whole new look.
What’s missing and what’s new.
You will discover a lot of new features, but there are also a few things you’ll notice missing. Notably, the Pilot of the month series is going to take a little hiatus. A much loved extension of the first year, we’re letting the Pilot program take a “nap” while we focus on creating more interactive, community based opportunities on the U.P platform. With the slew of email requests we keep receiving, we felt the time was right to expand the platform in order to promote all the inspiring individual LBD challenges happening in the U.P. community.
A special note! To all the DIY’ers who’ve already written and haven’t heard back from us: Fret not, we’ve just been a bit buried getting the basic site framework up, you’ll be hearing from us with a proper update very soon!
This new chapter will also give us a chance to look back and celebrate what has already been accomplished, allowing everyone to check in with the past dailies and fundraisers. Each day will continue to feature a daily look from our archives alongside regular content updates from U.P happenings worldwide.
To the future.
As has been the case for the past two years, this new phase of U.P will continue to be a labor of love. From everyone currently involved to everyone who has contributed in the past, we feel utterly blessed to have shared with you this journey of doing ‘good’ the fun way. But most importantly, we’re thankful for each and every one of you, our community and greatest asset; the real reason we are still here. We hope you stay with us as we continue to explore new horizons together.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on all of these new developments. So comment away!
