Feedback from the Judges:
Michael Carroll 👏 Head of Product at Baton Technologies — Emoti-Con Judge
This is a really helpful idea that can do some good. It may be helpful to also ask other people who focus on helping those in need how they approach this and how your approach is unique and makes a difference. I love where your thinking is to help people who need it the most, no matter what they need.
Deren Guler 👏 CEO at Teknikio — Emoti-Con Judge
This is an excellent idea and tools like Slack have helped communities work together on these types of efforts. I hope you are able to get in touch with mutual aid groups and test this idea. Great job!
Sarah Judd 👏 Curriculum Manager at AI4ALL — Emoti-Con Judge
I love that you did research to figure out what people lacked before designing an app for a need that wasn't there. It's also very important that you took feedback from people and added features they wanted and needed. Getting information from users is incredibly important in app design!
Marcus Del Valle 👏 Program Manager at Code Nation — Emoti-Con Judge
This is a wonderful idea for an app! I think this has the potential to include so many different things! I can imagine this connecting people to food services, shelters, government aid, and so much more! I would love to see this project grow into a real world app! Great job!

This will be very helpful and I like that it is specifically for the pandemic. A lot of people are going through rough times because of it. I really love the app that was designed. Good job, the two of you!
