Our Story

Charities do amazing work and people go to extraordinary lengths to support them. Whether a coffee morning, the odd marathon or devoting time to volunteer, everyone gives to the charities they support the best they can.

Imagine if we could all give a little more – without dipping into our pockets or from taking up more of time.

We want to help everyone, everyday, support the things they care about, so we’re coming up with new ways of doing it. Starting with Reward points and Gift Cards.

We’re a start-up, with profit for purpose Social Enterprise and for starters, we want to help raise 100M for charities in the next five years.
