idea #017: Local Habitats
Rapid, localized habitat for humanity.
A lot of my ideas revolve around community economics - this is no different.
Habitat for Humanity is an amazing program, but requires a fair amount of resources and coordination to execute at scale.
Could this idea work at a micro-scale, local to a city/neighborhood? There are families that may not need an entirely new house, but could definitely use help with repairs, remodels, or similar handy work.
= Create a platform (maybe like a Go Fund Me) that connects those in need with volunteers and local suppliers that can back a project without excessive lead time.
For example, I have a few hours to spare this weekend. I want to go help paint someone's house, I can search in my area who needs help and go.
