Non-profit organization project


As my first real world project I would like to make a website for a non-profit organization, it’s a shelter for stray cats. I would like them to be able to receive donations (maybe the Paypal “donate” button) but also I want them to have a blog to expose their work and adoption stories.
I learned HTLM5, CSS3, Python and Django…half way on JS here in FCC but I will learn whatever is necesary to build this.

Would it be a good idea to use Wordpress or Drupal? I want to make this as easy as possible for them to use. Sorry the long post, I know maybe I am over thinking.

Please help, any feedback is welcome.

If your choice is either WordPress or Drupal then definitely go with WordPress. It is infinitely more easy to use, especially for non-technical users.

Use WordPress and get some Paypal plugin. Find some free (or inexpensive) WP templates. Easy-peasy.

Thank you all for the advice! WordPress will be then :slightly_smiling_face:

Shelters use a lot of images: at least one per animal that comes in, more for featured adoptions. WordPress is a good solution for blogs and a CMS-lite, but do look around for some sort of media manager for image-heavy sites, plus alternate media storage such as S3. Both of those features should be available as plugins.
