Revolut Poppy cards return after raising £100k last year
Revolut is partnering with the Royal British Legion to give users the option to donate directly donate to the charity through the app.
After raising more than £100,000 for the Royal British Legion (RBL) last year, Revolut is releasing its Poppy card again.
Last year 10,000 Revolut customers supported the Poppy Appeal, and the app is launching the campaign again to raise more money to support members of the armed forces.
To support the campaign and get a Poppy card, customers must donate at least £5 through the app, where 100 per cent of the donation goes to the RBL.
“We are continuing to find new and innovative ways to enable people to donate to the Royal British Legion, and our partnership with Revolut and Visa does just that,” Royal British Legion head of corporate partnerships Ben France said.
“The money raised by Revolut customers will help us provide life-changing support to members of the Armed Forces community, and we are pleased to see the partnership go from strength to strength.”
The card, made from recycled materials, features the RBL’s red poppy on the front, a symbol of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.
The partnership between Revolut and the RBL aims to give people the opportunity to support the RBL all year round, not only with their card but with the option to make regular recurring payments or one-off donations.
Customers can support the Armed Forces community every time they spend if they chose to by automatically rounding up their card transactions to the nearest pound and instantly donating the difference.
“We know our customers will be delighted by the return of our Poppy Card, enabling them to instantly support the Poppy Appeal through donations,” Revolut global head of public affairs Adam Gagen said.
“The return of the Poppy card comes as we celebrate a total of £20m in customer donations to a variety of charitable causes through our Donations feature.”
