Remember our good friends at M2 Photography? Well they just can’t stop building websites and coming up with new companies to start. This adventure they are launching is called “Gethrr” it’s a play on “Together”, in fact their contact email is firstname.lastname@example.org, classic! Gethrr is a community movement inspiring good and bringing together people to help those in need. They are doing this through a membership site that is only $1 a month. Members contributions go towards a community project that Gethrr picks on a monthly basis. Members and non-members alike are asked to submit a pledge to make their community a better place. Not just the community they physically live in, but also to the bigger community that is the world, in which many people are now connected through the wonderful thing we call the internet.
On the technical side of things, the membership functionality is powered by Premise which is made by the same folks that make my favorite WordPress framework, Genesis. We created a custom post type to manage all of the pledge submissions and use some custom fields to make management easier for the admins.
I’m very pleased with how everything turned out with this site and I really hope that it gains some traction with people that are interested in making their world a better place, to Gethrr! (see what I did there?)
