The projects are all focused on one city, one community, or – in the case of Cute Pets Twitter bot – one animal shelter. The goal is to bring the project to your city, your community or the animal shelter near to you and make them relevant for more causes and help solve similar problems in your city. For example, the city of Düsseldorf in Germany didn’t buy an app that allows users to collect data of their bike rides because someone proposed this as a six-figure project. Now CyclePhilly gets replicated for Düsseldorf for free and the mayor as well as the bike lane planner are happy to get their solution.
We decided to start this campaign because we believe in it, and we will definitely keep working on it even after August 31st. We are taking part in a TEDx competition and hence the deadline. There we will present how much impact our campaign had and how much you guys could do to change the world for the better.
