Because of how the Molly Fund came together, the site was pulled together pretty quickly, and within the capabilities of whatever I was able to do myself. At the end of last year, I started re-designing the site and talked to my friend and co-worker Andy Pfeiffer to get some tips on writing the code. Any code that I write ends up working enough to do its job, with a significant touch of ghetto to it. Because Andy knew about the Molly Fund, he stepped up and volunteered to write the code himself.
We both have pretty busy jobs and not a lot of free time, so it's been a while since we started. Andy has put in an incredible amount of hours making sure that every pixel is perfect, enhancing the design with ideas of his own, and covering bases that I hadn't worried about in the past. He probably spent 40 hours just solving a bug with font rendering. We can't thank him enough for his efforts. He's incredibly talented and we wouldn't have been able to pull this off without him.
Andy has a side business doing this sort of thing, and he's a perfectionist that's talented at design, development, and content management with Expression Engine. He's generally pretty busy, but if you need a web site check him out at Alchemy Design.
Another huge round of thanks from everyone at the Molly Fund.

We never stop moving here, and we're going to maintain a perfect streak of collaborating with the best vendors. So here's the new stuff, just in time for this weekend's party:
Molly Send-off Hand Silkscreened Posters
We don't ask too many favors, but we knew the great people at JDK would come through for something like this. They're an overly-talented design firm in Burlington, VT and they have their own screenprinting setup in their basement gallery called Iskra. Michael Jager got the ball rolling, and Leo Listi and Matt Mayer got down to business to print us a batch of event posters to help the fund raise some money. There's a lot of time, effort, and materials in doing something like this, and JDK / Iskra donated all of that and we couldn't be more grateful to them. They're 15" x 21" and they're gonna look pretty darned good framed up on your wall. This is a very limited, very special batch. Once I have a final count tomorrow night they will be put on the site for first come, first serve buying, and you can pick them up from me on Friday or Saturday in person if you're coming to the event. Otherwise, they'll be shipped in a tube next week.
Griffin x Inkswell x Molly iPhone Cases
So can it get better? This is an awesome collaboration between Griffin (the best iPod accessories you can get), Inkswell (customize your accessories to make them better), and the Molly Fund. Griffin generously donated these cases to the cause, and then Alex Birch from Inkswell took over to imprint them with heavy-duty Molly logos. Both companies donated their time and materials for this first batch so we could raise some more money, and they came out perfect. Get all the specs for the case here. By the way, we're not just saying the Griffin accessories are the best because they donated. Grab any case and compare the perfectly snug fit to your iPod or phone to anything else out there, and the Griffin ones will never have any jiggle to them...
Both items will be $30. We can't thank any of these companies enough, so go give them some business already:
Thank you thank you thank you.
