Here is a great cause that uses technology in its fundraising campaign

It’s been a long time since I’ve had any cash on me. A habit increasingly shared by millions of consumers who only use electronic payments. The other side of the coin is that small cash donations are becoming rarer.

As part of its 20th anniversary, the Dr Clown Foundation is launching a fun and innovative fundraising campaign, using “connected noses” that allow donations to be made via Google Pay and Apple Pay. A first !

Thanks to NFC technology (near field communication* or near-field-communication), when the phone approaches the connected nose, a microsite opens and allows you to instantly donate 2 dollars. A new way to update and democratize the gesture of giving. About this NFC technology, this chip has already been fitted to millions of smart phones for several years.

More than 5,000 Dr Clown noses will be available free of charge from October 21, in around fifty distribution points in the greater metropolitan area. An ideal last minute Halloween costume for busy parents.
