  • Dedicated support person
  • Multiple administrators
  • Embeddable slideshow 
  • Export options (to download high res versions of images/videos)
  • Metrics (posts, page views, referral sources, etc)

To get a better sense of the outpouring of support for President Carter, see a slideshow of the full board here:

The Carter Center was founded by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in 1982.

For the last 38 years, The Carter Center has worked to wage peace, fight disease, and build hope in more than 80 countries worldwide. Through peace and health programs, The Carter Center has improved the lives of some of the poorest and forgotten people by resolving conflicts, advancing democracy and human rights, preventing diseases, improving mental health care, and creating a healthier and more peaceful world.
