Ribas Donates Website to Special Needs Group

Peoria, IL., August 6, 2009 -- In an effort to build more awareness for their cause, new local non-profit organization SNAP launched a brand new website this past week. The new site was developed by Karl Ribas, and features information about the group including how to request special needs assistance and make donations.

The Central Illinois Special Needs Assistance Program, or SNAP, helps children with special needs and their families obtain the resources and services which will help in their unique journey through life. The organization operates throughout central Illinois, and is based in Peoria Illinois.

"The primary goal of this project was to create a simple online presence where individuals from within the central Illinois community can go to learn more about what it is we do and how they can help", says SNAP Secretary, Trey Solorio. "Karl came highly recommended and we could not be more pleased with what he was able to do for us."

Aside from his extensive freelance work, Ribas also occupys the position of Vice-President of Marketing at All Web Promotion, a full service website design and marketing company. He specializes in providing search, social media, and email marketing solutions to small businesses.

"I am ecstatic to have played such a major role in the development of the SNAP website," says Ribas. I enjoyed working closely with the organization's board of directors, and tried my very best to create a website that not only met their needs, but one that was also visually pleasing as well."

The new SNAP website can be found online at: http://www.cisnap.org.

From start to finish, the website build lasted only two-weeks. Ribas donated his time and services to the SNAP organization, and has also agreed to donate additional development time to maintaining and updating their website in the future.

"This is a great organization that does great work for our local central Illinois community", says Ribas. "They are just getting started and so needless to say they are without the means to hire a website designer for future website changes. Knowing this, I agreed to stay on after the initial project to help manage their online efforts.

"Not only did he achieve our goal, he also went above and beyond our expectations", says Solorio.
