Empower individuals to support causes through their everyday spending, at no additional cost.
What it does
Buttons for Good is a shopping portal that contributes the affiliate commission generated by its users to charitable organizations.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Managing scope was our greatest challenge. There are always numerous features and directions that you can add to a product. However with the limited time, we had to refine our aspirations so that the most concise and complete version of our goal was produced.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Buttons for Good provides people with a simple way to support causes that they value. People want to contribute to society and feel like they're actions are making a difference, making the world a better place. Using BfG, they can - every day and at no additional cost. With the touch of a Button, people can add purpose to normally ordinary or frivolous purchases and feel good about doing it.
What we learned
Software can be a powerful tool for good by harnessing the collective energy of the masses.
What's next for Buttons for Good
Sharing our product with the world and starting to make a difference will be our first step. We also plan to add more charitable organizations that our users can support and increase the number of available merchants. These updates will attract more users, support more spending opportunities, and contribute more funds to organizations in need.
