KangaDo was founded in San Francisco, California by 2 Silicon Valley tech industry veterans – a Mom and a Dad – who are passionate about building best-in-class, delightful solutions to make parents’ lives easier!
Like us, today’s parents are overwhelmed by the sheer number of everyday tasks: driving children to school, sports activities, arranging childcare, organizing playdates, making doctor’s appointments, shopping for and preparing nutritious food…and the list goes on.
Our mission is to make parents’ lives easier by helping them get more done, quickly and with peace of mind.
Parents need more help – after all, it takes a village! But up until now, there has been no time-efficient, all-in-one solution for requesting or offering help – especially when you’re on the go.
KangaDo is an easy-to-use, emotionally reassuring mobile solution that empowers micro communities of Moms, Dads and friends who trust each other, to connect and get more help with the needs involving those they care about most – their children and loved ones.
Our free iPhone and Android apps, live in the Apple App Store and released to Google Play in late 2013, already allow busy parents and their trusted friends to instantly organize their kids’ needs – like carpools, childcare, playdates, or anything else – without the time-consuming email trails and text messages! They can also use private instant messaging to chat, share photos or their location, and turn a chat into an event on their calendar.
Currently #7 out of 2,200 listed “parent” apps in the App Store, KangaDo has been called a “Collaborative TaskRabbit for Parents,” “a lifesaver” and “the electronic answer to it takes a village to raise a child” by families using the app!
App reviewer The iPhone Mom says :
“The app is very straight forward and so easy to use and I loved the sleek interface with different colors for each request category. KangaDo is definitely the perfect companion for the modern parent with busy children on the go.”
KangaDo is excited to continue our mission of helping busy parents in 2014.
Stay tuned, there’s much more to come! 🙂
