About the Non-Profit Organisation

OpenStreetPay

OpenStreetPay ist ein digitales Produkt, das bargeldloses Spenden an und kontaktloses Bezahlen bei Partnern für obdachlose Menschen ermöglicht. Die Idee ist im Rahmen des #wirvsvirus Hackathon entstanden und wird seitdem weiterentwickelt.

Obdachlose Menschen erhalten über unser Netzwerk von karikativen Einrichtungen unsere Karte, die SmallChangeCard. Spender*innen können über unsere App entweder in einen Spendentopf oder direkt an einen obdachlosen Menschen spenden, das heißt mithilfe von NFC-Technologie an die SmallChangeCard. Aus dem Spendentopf wird monatlich ein festgelegter Betrag gleichermaßen auf alle Karten aufgeladen. Die Karte kann bei teilnehmenden Partnern z.B. Bäckereien zum Bezahlen verwendet werden.

Aktuell arbeiten wir an einem Prototypen.

We currently work exclusively remotely via Slack. There we meet every week on Tuesday from 18:30 for a meeting. Each of us has different skills and brings them into the project.
