Apps For Good

In 2020 I took part in Walk All Over Cancer to support the amazing research carried out by this charity. Unfortunately due to the Corona virus taking 10K steps per day didn't seem like the right thing to do.

While staying at home as much as possible I have been looking for ways to help out and one that came to mind was to create apps to help people coping with the new normal of our lives. I also wanted to combine this with supporting charity directly so I have decided to start creating a collection of apps which will be free to use and will ask peopel to make a donation to charity instead. The apps that I and others around me need the most seem to be:
  • Getting help with shopping for elderly neighbours.
  • Learning activities for kids.
  • Self development games.
My goal is to spend a few days on each one trying to see how much I can achieve and ideally launch these apps for people to start using them and raising money for charity.
