About this Project:
Commoncourage is an app by the All Right Titans group from Brooklyn Design League, that focuses on the building of relationships between volunteers who provide mutual aid, and users who require assistance with day-to-day activities. An example of such, being an elderly man who needs help buying groceries, or someone suffering from trauma needing someone to help them.
Commoncourage does a lot more than just help those in need, it builds community, it allows people, who otherwise would’ve never even known each other, to create a bond stronger than steel.
Motivation for this app came from a man known simply as Brad, who sought to bring assistance to those in need, by way of his website, “South Brooklyn Mutual Aid''. South Brooklyn Mutual Aid was a website created by Brad, as a way for him and like minded people to help fulfill requests by people in the community who desperately needed it. Inspired by his vision, we at the All Right Titans felt that we needed to do our part to help make his message and efforts more accessible, using the app ‘Commoncourage’. While South Brooklyn Mutual Aid aimed to do the essential work of helping people in your community, we wanted to build further on this idea.
We focused on the connection between people more in this project by allowing a safe place for volunteers and users to chat and communicate with each other, which builds bonds, but further connects the individual to the community, which is essential to build while everyone is at home.

Feedback from the Judges:
You might want to think a bit more about how you'll get people in the community to become aware of your app. Nice job with the branding, by the way. The name and logo have a good look, and they convey a story immediately. Terrific!
