92 West was presented with an opportunity to help out a local charity. We took on the challenge with open arms and are happy to say that the client has been very pleased with our efforts. Currently the site is static HTML, but we are working on a content managment system for them to update the site easily on their own in a WIZYWIG editor. We’ve also developed a new look for their brand utilizing their current logo.
A Brief History:
KJ’s Carts for Kids started shortly after Hurricane Katrina. KJ Louis, five-year-old son of Ken and Sherri Louis, was concerned that the children affected by Katrina lost all of their toys. KJ gathered some of his own toys and wanted to give them to the children. The Louis’ embraced his compassion ;and began a toy drive where over 2000 pounds of new toys were collected throughout neighborhoods, churches, businesses, and an event. The toys were shipped to Houston, Texas to be wrapped and distributed in time for Christmas, 2005. KJ flew to Houston to attend an event where he helped to give these toys and gifts to the Katrina’s Kids. This story received local and national news coverage which inspired a local family to fund a new Christian nonprofit in order to continue with this concept — the impact children can have in helping others less fortunate.
