Most charity platforms use social media to promote giving. We flipped that around and integrated charitable donations into Twitter.
How it works
Tweet @ a charity signed up with us using a dollar amount and #GivingWithGiveHub. A ReTweet allows a friend to donate just as easily. Our NLP will tweet you a URL to donate at.
Example: Thanks @RedCross for all you do - I am #GivingWithGiveHub an amount of $27.
Challenges I ran into
Mobile compatibility, payment management, URL shortening
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
UI/UX, simplicity, Twitter integration.
What I learned
Front-end design, how to work with Twitter Streaming API, and websockets.
What's next for GiveHub (FoCoFoShoYoYoYo)
Simplicity of donation - remembering users/confirming transactions through wearables. Forming a strong social media presence and growing with charities.
