Maxomedia created a responsive design platform for this purpose, which also allows community members to vote for posted wishes. Those with the most votes are considered by the bank for realization. Many a dream is coming true through this fantastic community project. All ideas are possible; owning a pony, meeting Justin Bieber, helping children in Kenya - young people are full of great ideas.

Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University has some 26,000 students enrolled at six different campuses. They were using an internally-developed Classic ASP CMS to manage over 400 websites, with tens of thousands of pages, documents and images. They needed a CMS that could handle the complex nature of their sites, as well as make the migration to the new system as painless as possible for the hundreds of content managers who update their sites. Kentico CMS fitted that bill because of its similarity to the existing system, its many ready-to-use modules, and its fantastic support. The migration went very smoothly and the content managers carried on without missing a beat.
