The inspiration for this project was the current situation we are facing, regarding the COVID-19 and the obligation of keeping the social distance. We were thinking about the ways on how we can help and how we can give our contribution to fight against the COVID-19. We wanted to include as many people as we can and also give them the possibility to help from their homes.
What it does
Tilda enables users to meet the celebrities via video chat by donating a symbolic amount of money to active charity causes. Users can also use this platform to stay in touch with their family and friends or just for making a donation without using video chat. In order for the video call to be established, it is necessary to donate a symbolic amount that goes to charity.
How I built it
Our lead developer Raul came up with this idea and we immediately started to work on it. Developers were responsible for coding, and the rest of the team was working on marketing and social media strategy as well as on the approach to celebrities.
Challenges I ran into
The biggest challenge is to obtain the state permission for running charity event due to the very complex bureaucracy.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are really proud of our teamwork and how we managed to develop the platform in quite a short period of time. Dedication and hard work of all team members was really admiring and that gives a lot of encouragement and hope that this will be a successful project
What I learned
We learned that with hard work it is possible to deliver quite complex project in a short period of time.
What's next for Tilda
Next for Tilda is testing in order to be sure that everything works perfectly without bugs. Before public release, we also need to polish the whole platform and if needed make some design changes and make it intuitive for users. Our volunteers will start contacting the celebrities and media to spread the word about Tilda.
