Meet Dan Keys
Co-Founder, Active Hearts Foundation
Dan came to us in 2018, in need of a website for his charity, Active Hearts Foundation- a grass roots international charity based in New Zealand. Dan is based in Riverton but works a lot of the year in Nepal and surrounding Himalayan villages as a guide for Active Adventures and after the devastating earthquakes in 2015, began the charity to help with the rebuild. Since then it has gone from strength to strength, and we are so proud to be a part of it.
""My name is Dan Keys and I run the charity the Active Hearts Foundation. We build and facilitate health and education projects in rural Nepal. By the end of 2017, it was time to step up from a crowdfunding donation page to our own website. Phil and the team at Back 9 were recommended to me through a friend of a friend. Having never been involved with designing a new website I was feeling pretty overwhelmed until I sat down with Phil, Jane and John. The guys really listened to the charity’s mission and what I wanted to achieve with the website. They actually got me really excited with all their ideas on how to share our story and make it more appealing to potential donors. Phil very generously offered a discount as we are a charitable organization. We felt we were more than just another client. Throughout the process, they kept me updated and were very welcoming with my ideas. Now it is complete and it is far superior to what I imagined six months ago. John is a genius!
We now have a professional platform to share the Active Hearts story and the donations are coming in. I would recommend Back 9 Creative to anyone that is looking for a quality design team that really listens to your needs".
Thanks Phil and the team!"
