Matching Volunteers - Organize help: right place and right time
What it does
Volunteers can propose (1) what they want to help with (e.g., shopping aid), (2) when they want to help, and (3) what their range around their home is, (e.g. 5 km). Likewise, help-seekers request what and when they need help for what. The system algorithmically matches the proposals with the requests and notifies both parties via mail.
Key Technical Features: Internationalization support, geocoding, distance-matching, timeline-matching, algorithmic-matching, automatic mailing
