It’s very hard to motivate someone for keeping an App for Just Donation of Blood on their Phone.
Instead of that on They are ready for with Chatbot ( I have done some survey - Closed Group )

There is some specific reason I have chosen chatbot for this application. I will list it here.

  1. Facebook Messenger has appx 1.2 B active user if I Built a platform on this it can reach the maximum user with minimum resources. ( i can keep everything over the messenger )

  2. To connect with the donor as fast as possible, user need to store this app on their phone always only then I can send push notifications to their phone, but unfortunately that is not possible for everyone ( Due to storage issues ), In my case If I chose Messenger, user need not worry about it right.

  3. All the other website are just providing the Donor List, After getting the list the person needs to call them individually.
    In our case, We will notify the user if he/she is free or not to donate Blood, After confirming this then I will send the Donor Details to the USER.

     					How Process Flow Works
    
  4. User Registration using Facebook Messenger

  5. User Initiated the Donor Search Using Facebook Messenger

When someone is looking for blood Then our algorithm will find the #Donorlist from our Database to nearest location.

Then our bot will send this kind of notification to the Donor List ( Only Matching Blood Group, Location, TIme Frame )
Hi Dazzeler!
A person nearby, got need of blood of your type.
Name - Akash Paul
Place - Old Nimta Road, Belgharia, North Dumdum, Hāora, West Bengal, 700056, India
TIme - Tomorrow ⏰ Immidiately

With an option of YES or No ( as quick reply )

That’s all

I hope it trims down many hurdles of this process. There are several groups in Whatsapp & Facebook. But there is no right way to make it easier. I believe using this chatbot(With Maintaining User flow ) we can address the problem with the right solution.

Please correct me if I am wrong in any point addressing the problem.

I did some research. At this time, someone has already built the App.

App - https://www.m.me/1822491921371467

You have mentioned about running an algorithm and matching against the donor database. For all these to happen, don’t you need an App. Registering an user with the Facebook login is fine, but you got to maintain their info and then run algorithm etc. on top of it.

Thanks for the video.
This bot is not working now. Can you please check it again ?

Anyway sometimes hitting the ball in the first stroke does not mean they will win, Proper Marketing plan & connection is needed to execute this bot.

To make it useful I have to connect this bot to NGO, Blood Donor Groups & Blood Donor Organizations. I know few of them who are actually maintaining these things regularly. Hopefully, they will spread the word for the community.

Yes you are right, I am storing all those data at the backend( MongoDB).

I need your suggestion before posting this project on Collaborizm.

Thanks for the video, Exactly this bot is doing the same thing. But My Idea is Original & still, it has some USP over this bot which is the main pain point of this kind of thing.
Unfortunately when I checked the bot didn’t respond anything, Can you check the link ?

Sometimes hitting six in the first ball doesn’t mean they can win the race. It needs proper Execution Plan, Team with good connections, It also needs awareness programs (with NGO)

I have talked with some NGO’s (Blood Donor Organization) who are maintaining Database of Blood Donor if they can push this bot among their users it will be a huge success.

I believe still there is a Gap which We can fill up with the help of Collaborizm.

I believe I can find valuable team mates over there.

I hope with in this weekend I can post some real demo here.

Before posting this as a project I need Valuable Suggestions.

Here’s my recommendation. Based on my experience here in Collaborizm, you got two options.

  1. Post a public project with all the relevant information, screenshots, prototypes, detailed requirements, design and stuffs so that will help the team to have a better understanding, join the project and contribute. The good news is, your project may get funded if it meets the Collaborizm requirement (Reviewed by the Collaborizm Team)

  2. Paid project as a Gig. You can choose to go with various tasks and assign each of them with a suitable pay. Steven Reubenstone can help you on this.
