Interesting Charity Things

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 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:
