Inspiration

I wanted a way for individuals to be more aware of charities that deal with public health while browsing online!

What it does

The app is a chrome extension that redirects a list of sites that you deem "unproductive" to charities/organizations that promote health through water, clean sanitation, and hygiene (EH-24). The hope is that you will eventually come across a charity and donate!

How I built it

I built it using a host of chrome extension tools and javascript!

What's next for WaterMe

Find even more charities to add that promote public health!
