Our innovation capitalizes on the emerging Voice Activation technology trend, creating an emergency-based skill for Amazon's Echo device that would generate a continuous flow of emergency funds to be used as needed to protect vulnerable children.
Comscore predicts that by 2020, voice activated searches will make up 50% if all online searches. Advanced voice devices, such as Amazon Echo, utilize voice to be the primary interface for the connected home. We need to provide an option for donots to use these voice devices to learn about Save the Children's emergency responses and to make a donation immediately after an emergency hits.
Charlie Alert -- an embedded app within voice devices -- would alert individuals right away about our emergency response and provide a platform to donate immediately. In the event of a rapid onset emergency, Save the Children would be first to market with messaging and appeals.
