For about a year, I've been working on a side project: https://www.trail.care/
It's a service that makes it easy for trail users to donate to the organizations that maintain the trails they use.
Despite basically 0 marketing, the service as attracted 375 users that in total have donated $2715. Not bad for charity I think.
My question is, since it seems like this idea could get traction, would it be possible to turn it into a business? The premise of the product is that 100% of your donation goes to charity (minus stripe fees) so I can't just skim off the top.
I've thought about possible seeking sponsors. Maybe placing their ad in the email that the service sends out to users. Beyond that, I'm not sure.
Anyone have any ideas? Feedback?
Also, stoked to have joined what looks like a cool community 👋
