Interesting Charity Things


(Max Walker) #1

So I know the idea of charities has been talked about before with things like rounding up spending to donate to charities (which btw I noticed Tesco self checkouts were trying out yesterday).

So here is my thought… A lot of businesses have a charity partner of the year or something e.g. Tesco: diabetes uk, wetherspoons: clic sargent (both worthy causes), M&S even gives you choices when you use its Sparks card.

If Monzo were ever to get one itself (not necessarily roundups), maybe an in-app vote either once out of a few options (with the most popular being the chosen charity) OR like the supermarkets are all doing a virtual charity choice token every time you make a transaction.

Another clever idea along these lines could be regional charities (because monzo has locational data about transactions) so smaller more local charities might be able to benefit.

A long way off I know (get the current account working) but just my thinking outside the box

I’d love to see an integration with https://www.lendwithcare.org or similar

That looks fantastic.

I’d love to see us do these kind of things too. It would be pretty simple to do roundups that get automatically sent to a specific bank account or something like that :grinning:
