Hello Rolarr,

You have created a good site.

I think it would serve you better if you changed the font within the panel to non-bold and use a font size of 12 pixels or more. The bolding makes it difficult to read using Chrome at least. I would change the font-face to something like Verdana rather than Helvetica. Verdana is an ideal font for text like this and is very easy to read plus has an element of formality on screen as Helvetica does on paper.

Similarly take out the bolding from your navigation menu. The rendering is the issue not your page as such. The bold font looks moth eaten and uneven. this is an artefact produced in the screen rendering of this type.

I would consider removing "directly linked "connected to the Source" from your upper banner as it is just a duplication without a function. It should look cleaner and sharper.

Your secondary banner has gone a bit furry as seen with the text there. This is probably an effect of the editor and can be reduced by optimising the banner dimensions with an external image program such as Photoshop or any number of image programs including some online editors. The on-screen editor on the site-builder tends to reduce clarity and I think your banner will sing more clearly with a good image manipulation.

Don't put a donate button on your home page. It reduces the impact of the altruism of the content.

Increase your font size on your second page and once again go for a font like Verdana to really open the heart of the feeling.

keep fonts style and size consistent across your site and keep the font colours consistent as well. This really picks up the sharpness of a website greatly
