GiveNow

GiveNow is a donation app for things of daily live needed by refugees. It connects donators with supporters who collect the donation and bring it to the refugee organisations. Donators just set their location in the app and add the kind of donation they want to give. The categories right now are: smartphones, blankets, travel bags, sleeping bags, train tickets, baby products, hygiene articles, winter shoes and other. A volunteer then collects the items at the given address and transports them to the organisation.

The app just started, right now the service is limited to one organisation in Berlin, but other organisation can apply to use this service.

The apps front end is pretty easy to understand and supports German and English.
