Since Wish upon a star have chosen a final design I am building the website and designing the template for the key pages. I am going to create two templates that the website is going to be based on and work with them in Modx (the content management system). So far I have done the wireframes below in Gliffy.
I have also been inspired by http://wisergirls.org/. The website has a beautiful yet simple logo that when you mouse over it, it lights up and birds fly. I think that this may be a good idea for the donation button. When people mouse over the text lights up and the hot air comes out of the balloon or maybe the little girl starts waving.
