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.

Because of the disasters that’s been happening in the Visayas and Mindanao region particularly the earthquakes that have affected Bohol, Zamboanga and Cebu and the devastating effect of super typhoon Yolanda on 32 provinces in the Visayas regionAngel Hack HQ has decided that the theme for the Davao hackathon will be #Hack2Help – “the focus will be in apps that help either mitigate disaster, assist and improve disaster management response or help ease and alleviate the suffering of Filipinos”. Ideas that serve as inspiration are the projects in as initiated by the #Hack4Good project by David Cunningham of, the #CodePh projects convened by Ros Juan of #rescueph,  projects using the Youphoric Labs SMS API like and or even by IdeaSpace startup Tudlo.

To make this event a more compelling and exciting to come together with other developer communities – we have the confirmed attendance as mentors and/or speakers such as Chris Misola of Microsoft, Rey Cruz of PaymentWall, Earl Valencia of IdeaSpace, Kamrin Klauschie of AngelHack HQ, Lonel Labit of Here, Keith Hong of Qualcomm and local Davao startupper Rolly Rulete of PageSnapp.
