It’s Mike from the CharityPie team. Its been a busy morning and we haven’t left the building yet since arriving. We have our user cases, Amazon EC2 keys are on the way, wireframes are everywhere and the development team is frantically workIng data models around me.
What we’re doing
CharityPie helps you choose and give to your favorite causes.
Users donate however much they like each month through a single direct debit, which is then divided amongst the charities according to the user’s own preferences, set in the form of a pie chart. People that care about particular issues : the environment, Africa, etc can also choose from pre-selected causes which distribute finds between multiple charities in that field. Users can show their pies – and hence the charities they’re supporting – to their Facebook friends.
Back to work now – we’re hoping to have a working demo by this evening!
CharityPie (soon to have a new name!)
