Construct a Crowd Funding platform that can be used to be incorporated into International Longevity Alliance and be utilized for its associated Projects. ¶

The platform shall have the following requirements: ¶

It needs a model of Donations and something related to e-commercy where a payment transaction can be accomplished. ¶

It needs to showcase some Research Projects and get people to donate (offer limited funding goals and ongoing funding initiatives). ¶

A widget to allow for payments is needed (paypal, bitcoin, credit card, etc.) ¶

Users need to be able to read a short explanation of the work involved in each project. ¶

It shall support a photo of the team members/lab and Research foundation logo (if applicable). ¶

They can see how much the Project aims to raise/has raised (visual gauge), as well as add some other forms of context (i.e. how does the work relate to ending disease and other possibilities). ¶

Finally iIt shall provide a share it on Facebook/Twitter etc, ('like', 'share'), 'favourite' ¶

Crowd Funding platforms usually also include tiered donations/rewards. ¶

* It shall provide a video for the individual Projects. ¶

At first only the ILA leadership is able to add pProjects, but moving forward it, pProjects leaders shall also be able to submit a pProject for funding all on their own and the leadership would just 'review and approve/deny' listing it. ¶
