How can we forge an enhanced avenue for facilitating meaningful connections between people and charity missions, thereby elevating the engagement quotient to unprecedented heights?
The organization sought innovative and contemporary approaches to captivate a larger audience of philanthropically inclined individuals, entice their support for charitable initiatives, and enrich their engagement with the cause.
What We Created
Users had the option to make a donation through Stripe in order to request a mass. The entire experience was seamlessly integrated into FB Messenger, ensuring that all involved parties received timely notifications and reminders, enabling swift and effortless responses.
The primary highlight of the project involved users being able to request a mass, which would then be relayed to a list of priests who would conduct the mass on a specified date and time.
Master of Code developed a bilingual chatbot capable of connecting sponsors with their desired charity projects. The chatbot facilitated communication in both English and Spanish languages.
In addition, the chatbot boasted a range of supplementary functionalities, including:
Comprehensive catalog of active charity projects, accompanied by detailed descriptions of their respective goals. Users could conveniently subscribe to receive updates on their chosen projects.
Monthly challenge subscription
Empowering users to make a recurring $10 donation each month, thereby fostering a consistent contribution towards the cause.
Collaborative prayer feature
Enabling users to engage in collective prayer alongside the chatbot, selecting specific occasions for spiritual unity.
Daily wisdom provision
Daily wisdom provision, delivering insightful and inspiring messages to navigate through each day with renewed strength and purpose.
