Melbourne’s My Room Children’s Cancer Charity has partnered with Brisbane fintech startup YouPay to give affected children and families the ability to shop online for Christmas items and allow donors pay for their orders at the checkout.
A new annual charity initiative, YouPay Giving uses YouPay’s secure, private and unique cart sharing functionality to support children and their families to select a gift that they really want or need and provides donors true transparency in the gift giving process.
“YouPay gives My Room Children’s Cancer Charity donors a new and personal way to make a difference in the lives of cancer-affected families,” said My Room CEO Margaret Zita.
“Donors can see the items they’re giving with the knowledge that it was chosen by the person or people they’re buying them for, which is an incredibly powerful and tangible connection to make.”
People who want to become donors can simply visit youpay.co/giving, select a shopping cart or YouPay Wish List that’s been shared by a cancer patient or their family, then proceed to the checkout, after which the purchased order is sent directly to the person or people who created the shopping cart.
“Our multiplayer approach to shopping has, to this point, successfully connected shopper and payer relationships like parents and children, partners, friends and more, but we’re also ecstatic that we can now actively use YouPay’s proven platform to create a totally new way to support charity initiatives through fantastic organisations like My Room,” said YouPay Founder & CEO Matt Holme.
My Room Children’s Cancer Charity was founded in 1993 and has been supporting young cancer patients and their families through volunteer-led fundraising and other forms of assistance ever since.
