  • Personally knows people who struggle with homelessness
  • Is fearful of approaching the homeless population due to safety concerns

  • Call to actions should be clear and placed in a visible area
  • Pre-select and provide donation amounts
  • Remove other distractions
  • Show the results of how your help is working towards the goal

  • From a scale from 1–5, do you trust to use this application themselves? 1 would be absolute not and 5 being most definitely.
  • From a scale from 1–5, how confident do people see this app solving Carla’s problem? 1 would be absolute not and 5 being most definitely.
