MyWork helped save the Koala Hospital’s overloaded website so they could continue saving koalas.
The Koala Hospital is a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitation Facility that was established in 1973. A Not-For-Profit organisation, the rescue hospital is mostly staffed by volunteers and helps more than 200 sick and injured koalas annually.
In the wake of the bushfires, the Koala Hospital’s website went from averaging 200 visitors a day to 300,000 – and their shared website server crashed.
With the website down and no way to receive much-needed donations, they needed an effective solution with a quick turnaround.
Their website had to be an eCommerce site.
They needed a website designed to handle high traffic and to be appropriately scalable to meet demand.
They needed it fast.
With such a great cause left unable to take donations, MyWork dedicated themselves to creating the site the Koala Hospital needed in just four days to get them back on their feet.
MyWork knew that the best option for their new website would be a migration to the superstar eCommerce platform, Shopify.
Customisable and fully scalable, the new Shopify site had to be fully functional, easy to use, and rock solid under even the biggest influxes of traffic.
Time was one of the most important factors, with no compromise on the quality and function of the website. In just four days, MyWork had the website completed and ready to receive donations.
MyWork also added a great feature that supported the real-time generation and sending of customised adoption PDF certificates, as a special keepsake and incentive for donors to the Koala Hospital.
Creating this website in such a short space of time was a challenge for the MyWork team, but as a cause close to our hearts it was important that we support the Koala Hospital’s efforts and deliver a great result.
The website easily handled traffic to the site since launch, with the power and simplicity of Shopify helping support more transactions than ever.
Just four days after the site launched, the Koala Hospital had received over 12,000 donations from all over the world.
The Koala Hospital is an inspiring organisation, caring for some of Australia’s most vulnerable native animals. MyWork were proud to partner with them and support their efforts by delivering an effective website that exceeded their expectations.
Turned around in just 4 short days, MyWork successfully created a results-driven Shopify website that is already helping koalas live healthier, happier lives.
The team at MyWork did an exceptional job and it all looks perfect! Thank you so much for creating the new website in such a short time frame!
