Tampa, FL, November 18th, 2019 – Heartbeat International Foundation (HBI), a non-profit based in Tampa, celebrates the launch of a newly designed, mobile-friendly, fast-loading website to showcase its humanitarian efforts across the globe. Heartbeat International Foundation is a charity that provides life-saving cardiac implantable devices to the impoverished in developing countries.
“Our team has spent the last 35 years endeavoring to change the world,” says Laura DeLise, Executive Director of HBI.
The launch comes at a particularly exciting time as the charity has launched its #GivingTuesday and end of the year fundraising campaigns, the busiest fundraising season of the year.
“While we’ve worked hard on the ground to help others, we knew that we needed help ourselves – with our website, says Mrs. DeLise. “We are pleased to announce our brand-new, state-of-the-art website that offers our visitors with an improved user experience through and through.”
Designed using the latest best practices and web technology, the new website better tells the Heartbeat story and the passion for saving lives. New pages beautifully showcase the heart centers around the world, whose volunteer doctors serve some of the world’s poorest families. The website now acts as a platform to better tell the individual stories of lives saved, and how Heartbeat patients thrive today.
Other features and improved functionality include:
- Better online visibility
- Optimized for search engines
- Responsive design
- Secure payment processing that works on mobile & desktop devices
Led by Dr. Benedict S. Maniscalco, a Tampa cardiologist, the charity has saved the lives of women, men, and children through its global network of volunteer doctors, device sponsors such as BIOTRONIK and Boston Scientific, as well as the generosity of philanthropists in Tampa and the US who have donated funds to support the cause.
