#HackfromHome - an anti-viral virtual hackathon.

We’re giving people a chance to respond with action, working together to improve the lives of everyone affect by the Coronavirus. Our goal is to band together to help communities, patients, and their families better using what we know best - technology.

If possible, these ideas should preserve the privacy of individuals through the use of Personal Data Accounts. For more information on Personal Data Accounts read this.



A system where people can donate and share items needed within their locality

A user can be a Donor or a Receiver

Receiver: for example, If a user is short of an item (e.g tissue paper ) which is also not available at nearby stores, it will be listed on the needed category , while other users with excess will pop up and offer to render help (donate )

Donor: If a user have items in excess and willing to share with others it can be listed on Donate Category where other users nearby in need can request for them.

Items can be anything from tissue paper, sanitizers to food for the needy or the homeless etc.

It’s an Act of love, giving and sharing

    Great idea. Make sure to consider the needs of those who are not connected electronically, e.g. no mobile or broadband.
