Do you want to help local homeless people?
How you interact with a homeless person can set them up for success or failure...
Current solutions are not working...
What do people do when someone in need asks them for money or food?
Giving money can do more harm than good...
...and so does giving food (believe it or not!)...
... and ignoring people also doesn't help...
Using the Cheese App, you will be able to set someone up for success
Our app allows you to pay for someone to receive help at a local non-profit
Step 1: Select an item
Select the item you would like to donate to the person in need
Capture the information of the person who will receive help. Remember to say "Say Cheese" if taking a photo
Step 2: Capture information
Step 3: Direct beneficiary
Direct the beneficiary to a local non-profit where they will be verified and receive help. A landmark is used to easily direct them.
A few reasons to give this way:
Directs people to non-profits who provide professional support and care
Data captured enables better and more holistic support
Non-profits get financial help for the work they do
It is easier for non-profits to work together as they share a database
Taking ownership is encouraged as person has to go to distribution point
Alcohol abuse is minimised as money is not handed out
Help us realise this solution through supporting financially.
