Need Registry

The Issue

While battling cancer in 2010, Chris West discovered two things: friends and family want to help you in your time of need, but they don’t always know how you need or want help. From this experience, the idea of NeedRegistry - a central place where people going through major life changing events (such as serious illness, the death of a loved one or military deployment) can set up free fundraisers to help cover expenses - was born.

The Request

Mind Over Data was contracted to build a custom application which would allow a Person in Need (PIN,) or an advocate for a PIN, to create a needs registry, share this registry with their friends and family and provide situational status updates. The website would also allow friends and loved ones to access the PIN’s registry, provide help in exactly the way it is needed (for example: donating to their fundraising account) and leave messages of support. 

The Solution

Mind Over Data developed the crowdfunding website - needregistry.com - which provides the creation, sharing and management of PIN registries, a place for friends and family to donate to their loved one’s registry, global searching of PINs and their registries and static information pages such as How it Works, Who We Help, About Us and FAQs. In addition to the front-end, Customer Management System user interface, a back-end, Administrative module was also created to manage admin functions.
