As an IT engineer who witnesses firsthand the world’s rapid technological shift to mobile apps for “quicker, faster, and on the go” ease, the developer of the Home of the Heart Campaign donation app wondered, “Why not bring the efforts of our community to the mobile world?”
He recalls sitting through many fundraising efforts and thinking, “I don’t have time to fill out the pledge card but I want to make a donation’.” That was what inspired him to devote 35 hours of his time to develop the HOTH donation app. “Fundraising is very difficult because as soon as the community feels bombarded by the same information and same techniques, things can dry out,” he points out. Knowing that Dar-us-Salaam is actively progressing along with the rest of the world might just be the push community members need to continue supporting the cause. His ultimate hope is that the app will bring a
new sense of excitement and energy to the community and the campaign.
