They say all good ideas are stolen and in this case our idea was stolen by London’s biggest buffoon, Boris Johnson. It’s been quite a year for this project, including a chance encounter with the man himself - but that’s a story we can tell you over a cuppa.
Our idea, Donate at the Gate, is an innovative and award winning new way to give to charity. As you swipe through the designated tube gate, an extra penny is deducted from your contactless card and given to charity. Over 1.2 billion tube journeys are made annually, so the potential for donations is huge.
We’ve met with MPs and even presented the idea on BBC News in order to get this project off the ground.
