Why This Project Is Important 

Ever wake up to your children screaming "SNOW DAY!!!!"? Ever dread not knowing when snow days are until the very last second? Ever struggle to find a sitter for your children only to have to call in sick for work or even bring your child into work? Well then you'll want to hear what i have to say...

Project Description 

Michigan Technological University's ITOxygen team is developing a Snow Day App, which is a mobile application that allows its users who are in need of a babysitter to find someone to look after their children or would like to be a babysitter to find work on short notice. The app we're developing will create a way for young adults to create a sort of income, and will help parents when they need it. Your donations will go towards any cost that may occur during app development, such as membership to the Apple Developer Program, Google Play Console account, as well as supplying a device to run tests with.
