2nd Place: This app connects people who have been separated from their families to lost family members. People whose families have been separated can search for family members based on date and location when separated. Identity markers are kept private until personal questions are properly answered to match folks to each other. This technology embodies these Humanity 101 principles: empathy, compassion, and forgiveness.
3rd Place:This technology supports non-profits that serve patients in hospice care with no relatives nearby to visit them. This app allows arrangements for funding the travel of one relative to visit their loved one in their final moments. Once an institutional caseworker verifies that an individual is in hospice or has experienced a catastrophic health crisis and the patient has no relatives nearby to see them, the patient then identifies a relative they want to see them. After the selection process, the app’s main functionality is that of a trip planner/travel app. It assists in booking flights, lodging, transportation, and navigating the city to find the patient in hospice. The app also helps secure funding for these measures through corporate sponsorships. Humanity 101 principles: compassion, empathy, and kindness.
