With climate change affecting the world, many countries have been devastated by natural calamities like storms, earthquakes, and many more. Despite the preparations that these countries’ government make, there will always be unforeseen incidents. Victims of these unforeseen incidents in natural calamities will need all the help they can get from all people who are willing to help. This application running on web and mobile is designed to be able to consolidate any help that people can provide, by gathering pledges for donations whether in cash or in kind. People can choose from among different pledge stations helping a calamity-stricken area, and donate money or goods. The pledge stations are recognized organizations that help distribute the donations to the victims. With this, proper distribution will be guaranteed and done in an efficient and effective manner.
