You Should Check Out The 'Trees For Cars' App

Posted By on Wed, Dec 11, 2013 at 10:30 AM

Leo Grand, lost his job and was forced out of his home, has been homeless on the streets of New York City since 2011. In August of this year a man named Patrick McConlogue, made Leo an offer. He would give the man $100 or teach him how to code. Leo chose the coding lessons. It’s a modern day application of the old proverb: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

After Leo and Patrick met regularly for 16 weeks of coding lessons, Leo began creating an app.

The“Trees for Cars” app launched today. It is a mobile application designed to help preserve the environment by helping users find carpools (connecting drivers with riders) and providing information on how much CO2 the user is saving with each ride.
