We are celebrating an exciting development for the Angelman Syndrome Foundation as part of our 20th anniversary year: the launch of our new website! For the past several months, the ASF team has been working diligently to develop a new, more robust website to serve as an even more comprehensive resource for the Angelman syndrome community.
We encourage you to explore the new site and to share this exciting news with your friends, family and colleagues.
In addition to advancing awareness and treatment of Angelman syndrome through education, information and research, a large part of the Angelman Syndrome Foundation's mission is to provide individualized, one-on-one support for individuals with Angelman syndrome and their families. Our new website is a direct reflection of this mission as we strive to provide greater support and even more resources for the Angelman syndrome community-and others-to utilize. We'd like to share a few highlights of the new website with you:
Overall improved design and functionality
As part of our 20th anniversary year, we have already unveiled the new look of our brand with a new logo and supporting materials, and the website is the capstone of our brand's evolution. We are now moving from being a member-based organization to extending the benefits of membership to everyone who reaches out to the Angelman Syndrome Foundation. As such, a login is no longer required to access the resources on the new website.
Broader social media integration
The website integrates easily with your social media channels-including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube-and gives you expanded ability to share, bookmark, "Like", "Tweet", and email any page on the website to your friends, family and colleagues.
Fully-customizable personal fundraising pages
Personal fundraising pages have a new look and user interface that is easier to navigate and manipulate, allowing you to personalize your page with photos, videos and text. These pages also integrate with your social media channels, and allow you to set-up automatic updates to be sent to your social media outlets when donations are received-helping you spread the good news without having to lift a finger.
*Please note that any login information used in the past for fundraising pages or registrations will not work on the new site.
Ability to create personal campaigns
The new website allows you to create your own fundraising events and / or campaigns and manage them via the website, and allows you to integrate your campaign with your social media outlets. A custom badge is even available to embed on your own blog or website if you choose. Setting up a recurring gift option is also available.
Encouraging your friends, family and colleagues to join you at your local Walk is now easier than ever, as you simply need to refer them to the website to register, contribute to your Walk, learn more about the walk, start fundraising, and download Walk support materials. The entire process is streamlined to make it easier for everyone.
We hope that you are as excited about this new development as we are-and that you find the new website more comprehensive, easier to use and more informative. Of course, launching a new website can present a few little technical issues to work out; so, if any issues with navigation and / or usability arise for you, please let us know immediately so we can address the issue. We welcome all of your feedback.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the Angelman syndrome community and the Angelman Syndrome Foundation.
