billionBricks, the creators of weatherHYDE and powerHYDE, is a one-of-a-kind non-profit innovation studio that uses design as their primary tool to solve one of the most pressing global problems: homelessness. Headquartered in Singapore, a registered charity in India, we have helped over 4,000 homeless across Asia in last 4 years. We believe in extreme transparency of our work and your contribution. See how we track your impact.
We value transparency, and have made tracking easy for donors following this 3-step process:
Every donated kit, shelter or home is tagged with a unique code and given to the selected family in need of shelter support.
Codes are matched between the beneficiary families and donors.
Track the location of your impact, and meet the family whom you're helping through our Impact Page.
* In disaster situations, we may not be able to achieve 100% matching. We do our best to match as many families as possible.
