Inspiration

We all wish we gave more to charity, but it can be hard to actually remember and then go through with the donation.

What it does

We keep track of your goals, then connect you to charities that you'll love. We integrate with Capital One's API to measure your progress against your goals, and make donations seamless. We keep you reminded with push notifications and social media integration.

How I built it

charico is built using the Ionic framework to work across multiple platforms. It integrates with Facebook Parse for social media and notifications and Capital One for financial reasons.

Challenges I ran into

One of our team members had never worked with Ionic or Angular before this weekend, and had to learn on the fly

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We built something that will make the world a better place

What I learned

We learned that people are really awesome when you give them a chance to be their best selves, and often that's easier than it seems

What's next for charico

We want to switch from Capital One's hackathon API to a real-life API, and then launch to as many people as possible. We'd love to see a million dollars go to charity through our app
