Hi Sam and Andy, I've been thinking quite some time about a mobile app which uses The Life You Can Save's charity impact calculator (or else you're own estimates) to show a graphical overview of much bednets you've caused to hand out, etc.
It be cool to make it easier to note donations and have the visceral feeling of knowing how much you've already done to improve the world.
