A New App for Change

In July of 2012 I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. Although I am fortunate that I have recovered 100% before diagnosis the doctor informed me I may have had a stroke, or even a tumour in my brain.
At 34 years of age with 2 kids and 1 on the way I thank the heavens above that after blood tests and CT scans it was bells palsy.

During my six weeks of recovery I thought of an App which I thought could do something different to help others.

I then pieced it together, and oneHug was born.

oneHug is all about sending positivity and good will around the world and also have a bit of fun - with the six degrees of seperation hypothesis.

By downloads and in-app purchases we are donating 10% of all gross proceeds to a pool for donation.

Once we have reached our target via the app we will ask the oneHug community to vote for which charity they would like to donate the money to.

Our point of difference is that these charities have agreed to provide us with the information of exactly who these monies are being directed to and we in turn can share with the oneHug community who we have helped.

Our facebook page, website and app (available at the appstore and google play) are now live.

I would appreciate any feedback and happy to listen to anything constructive.

Cheers
eddy
