Local Heroes

Description

AirBNB for volunteering; a tool to allow local events and charities to recruit volunteers, and for potential volunteers to find local charities to volunteer for.

Also facilitates flexible volunteering hours as opposed the the rigid hours commonly used by larger charities

Is compatible with mobile devices to find volunteering work on-the-go

Ideas for taking this project forward

Incentivise volunteering at an event (social badges ect.),

Advanced keyword-based searches for volunteering work,

A 'points' system to reward volunteers/organizers (more interesting work yields fewer points, the boring stuff is more heavily incentivised)

Estimated costs for taking this project forward

£5,000
