I am not a designer so its a slow process for me. I am trying to develop a community site for immigrants in the town where i live. I am an immigrant and I want to create an online community with and for the immigrant community. So i am developing a barebones site to show people and try to get people interested to become involved. The content isn't there and the design isnt finished but I was hoping I could get a little feedback as i want to show it to people on Thursday..so i have a few days. The slideshow is a bit tempremental, if the pictures don't load click the home button. It needs something top right but i am not sure what and the footer needs work. Its very white which is ok but i am wondering if and what i can do with the body container background that doesnt make the page container stand out as too white.

Thanks in advance
