Our team in Charlotte, NC has assisted us in all stages of the development of the RAVE website. We have appreciated the ongoing feedback as well as many contributions to our words of hope, answers to frequently asked questions and responses to stories of hope and inspiration. Not only have they supported us in the development of content for our project, our Charlotte team hosted the first launch of the website in October 2007 (see photos below) and arranged numerous opportunities for the project to be highlighted in the local media.
