Global Reach Out Puzzle

Fundraiser project built on Rails.


Global Reach Out needed to quickly set up a standalone website for a fundraising drive. Ruby on Rails was chosen for rapid development. The site features:

  • Authentication via Facebook or Twitter accounts, in addition to the ability to create an account on the site
  • PayPal donation integration

By allowing logins via Facebook or Twitter, users could quickly get started without the hassle of creating a new account on the site.

The PayPal integration was designed to be seamless, allowing users to place a puzzle piece immediately after PayPal confirmed that funds were transferred.

The application resides on the Heroku cloud platform.
