    Great idea. Maybe it'd be better to take projects data from Watsi (via API or by parsing necessary pages — with their permission, of course)?

      Hey Sasha,

      The issue is that it's read only, so while projects are being funded through people's activity in the app, those same projects are being funded quite rapidly on their site. A project on Watsi could be funded entirely on Watsi.org and still be live in the app, so it's a bit problematic. After talking with Grace from Watsi, it seems the best way to facilitate this is to create designated projects that are exclusive to the application and are manually uploaded.
