The CrowdRise Giving Tower app allows you to see the world's charitable efforts grow in real time in the form of a tower made in augmented reality. Think of it as a really cool hologram.
Once you’ve downloaded the app, you can easily make a donation to any of hundreds of causes and your donation will immediately show up in the form of a brick on the Giving Tower showcasing your picture and the charity you donated to.The goal is to build the Giving Tower taller than any building in the world and it’s all for good.
Open the app and click on the “Real Life Mode” icon at the bottom
Point your device’s camera at a crisp one dollar bill to start the experience. If you’re at a Giving Tower location, point your device at the giant marker.
Keep your device pointed at the marker and you can view any part of the Giving Tower by moving the camera around. It’ll probably be shaky so pretend it’s really windy.
You’ll be placed into In-App Mode and you’ll immediately see the Giving Tower. Tap donate to give and get your own brick in the Tower.
Use one finger to rotate the Giving Tower to the left and right. Use two fingers to scroll up and down. Or just stare at the tower and don't touch it.
