Blood for transfusions is always in short supply, so it would be very useful to find and contact nearby people who could donate in an emergency.

What it does

This project is a web app where people can sign up using their location, blood type, and phone number as a potential blood donor, and allows people in need of a blood donation to search for nearby donors and get their phone number.

How we built it

Node.js and MongoDB on the backend, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript on the frontend. Heavy use of the Here maps APIs for location processing. Deployed to Heroku.

Challenges we ran into

Managing location data was quite awkward.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Making an innovative and functional product in 24 hours.
