TapDonate was a side project to test a proposition quickly and cheaply: whether we could build a product to collect donations using contactless technology and distribute the funds to charities through the JustGiving payment platform.

I started this with the app team and we built a prototype app in 3 weeks, using the PayPal Here SDK to integrate into a simple Java-based Android app. The app itself allowed the charity user to select their charity (from an API-based search of charities on JustGiving) and define a donation collection amount. You can read more about the whole project on Sandra Mileikyte’s website.
