Cowforce wins Yahoo!’s best charity website award

first_imgMark Harris, one of the judging panel, and a freelance journalist who writes for the Metro and The Guardian said: “The breadth and quality of the websites we saw in this year’s Yahoo! Finds awards shows that innovation and imagination are alive and well in the UK. The best of our British sites can stand up to anything produced in Silicon Valley, delivering interesting, informative and fun content and surfing the latest Web 2.0 trends.”Yahoo! has now opened the last award, the People’s Choice Award, to voting. The British public now get the chance to vote for their favourite from the original 45 websites which were shortlisted as a Finds of the Year website. This means that the runners-up in the charity category could still scoop a prize. These runners-up are:* The Road to Beijing: a site which details one person’s efforts to participate in the 2008 Olympics as a marathon runner, and raise money for the British Lung Association.* Big White Box: a new way to buy and sell digital pictures, with profits being donated to Oxfam, Care and Save the Children.* Alternative Wedding List: the charitable gift list website where guests can make donations to charitable organisations on others’ behalf.* Dog Blood Donors: the website which allows dog owners to register for blood donations.Voting closes on 15 January 2007.
