MCDONALD'S CORP.

WHAT'S THERE: This is two sites in one: one for kids and one for grown-ups. Both parts contain a ton of content, including nutrition info, company history, community service initiatives, games and McDonald's factoids.

WHO CREATED IT: Organic Online, San Francisco (http://www.organic.com)
