I was walking to class one day and a homeless individual asked me for money so he could pay for his sister's medical operation. I was on the rush to class and didn't believe him and rushed on by. However, later, I was nagged by doubt. What if he was actually speaking the truth?

There is little empathy between the poor and well to do in America. This app hopes to change that. Individual volunteers can meet those in need and ask them for their backgrounds, stories and dreams. For the price of a cup of coffee, they can give a unique bluetooth beacon to these individuals. From then on, anyone with the app will be able to, at a glance, understand the needs of any homeless individual and donate with the confidence that their money will be put to good use.
