UK charity, Save the Children, has launched a Christmas jumper with a contactless payment point, to make it easier to donate.
Anyone with a contactless payment card can just tap the jumper to donate £2 to the charity.
On Christmas Jumper Day last week, the charity’s annual fundraising event, fundraisers were at London Underground stations and Save the Children shops donning the jumpers and collecting donations.
Sarah Button-Stephens, Campaign Manager for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day, said:
“We are always looking for new and unique ways to reach the British public and raise vital funds for our life-saving work. We’re so excited to team up with Visa and develop the world’s first Christmas jumper with contactless donation technology, it’s the perfect way to raise money for Christmas Jumper Day and help make the world better with a sweater.”
Earlier this year, Connect&GO developed a new contactless pay experience that allows visitors to pay by tattoo at the Super Bowl.
Semi-permanent tattoos contain electric chips which allow wearers to make contactless payments.
