One afternoon in February we received a phone call from Dilshad Pirani. She told us about her amazing daughter Sanya, and how dedicated she is to helping all children have the basic necessities they need in life like food, clothes, shelter and education. After three years of successful fundraising, raising over $25,000 for Feed My Starving Children, Sanya had formed her own nonprofit and was ready to graduate from a free Wix website. We knew immediately that this was a project we had to get involved with one way or another. As a woman-owned business with three women developers, helping a strong independent young woman with big dreams seemed like a natural fit. We told Dilshad as much and she agreed with us.
One week later we delivered a proposal to donate the entire cost of a custom website designed by Iceberg. We reached out to our friends at Rebel 42 and Heather donated a gorgeous professional logo for Sanya’s new foundation. For the next month the developers at Iceberg donated their time after work hours to make the new website a reality. We launched the new site, www.sanyashopeforchildren.org, just in time for Sanya’s Head Start Awareness & Diaper Drive Celebration on March 25th, a free community event for her most recent service project which raised over 12,000 diapers. Working on this website was an inspiration to all of us at Iceberg. Please check it out!
