Inspiration

We wanted to transform the way people request chores/housework to be done, while at the same time, helping people save money, all while incentivizing people to perform good deeds.

What it does

Charitable Chores does three important things. First, it allows people to quickly request work done around their house, say mowing the lawn, all from their smartphone. Another person in the area who wants to make some spare cash can accept this request and perform the action. Secondly, the app also has a list of charitable acts that they will get paid for, say for example, $10 for donating their spare shoes that are lying around. The funding for this could come from sponsors and other organizations. Finally, the app tracks the money made towards their budget, helping them to save money and reach their goals.

How we built it

The backend is written in Php and MySql. The app is written in Html, Css and JavaScript on the Cordov platform.

Also, PHP is a difficult language to reason about and we didn't have an efficient method of debugging it which lengthened the development process.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Getting the backend to work.

What we learned

Improved Php and JavaScript skills.

What's next for Charitable Chores

Improve database management (backend), improve security, improve scalability of requests.
