Revolut is in its second year collaborating with RTÉ’s Late Late Toy Show Appeal

Revolut has partnered with RTÉ’s Late Late Toy Show Appeal for its second year to allow viewers to donate through the app.

Last year the appeal raised €6.6 million for the Community Foundation for Ireland, which helps children and family members across the island.

During last year’s fair, some customers of the digital payments app encountered technical difficulties when trying to donate.

Host Ryan Tubridy revealed on the show that the donation feature isn’t working.

Some customers couldn’t use their account while other service users couldn’t transfer money or top up their account.

Others were unable to log into the app at all and the currency exchange feature was also affected.

After fixing the issues, Revolut co-founder Vlad Yatsenko announced that he had made a personal donation of €100,000 to the appeal.

He also pledged to personally match any further donations made through the Revolut app – up to €1 million.

Led by calls from stars including Olympic gold medalist Kellie Harrington, the Irish public donated a further €750,000, bringing the total to €3.3 million.

The Late Late Toy Show returns to screens around the world on Friday, November 25th.

Mr Yatsenko said last year he was “amazed by the generosity” of the people of Ireland and that “there were some challenges at the height of the live show”.

He said after “a few hiccups” over the last year, Revolut has “upgraded” its donations feature to “welcome proceeds via the donations tab in the Revolut app, which will go live on the night.”

“We are deeply honored to once again support Ireland’s biggest fundraiser for children: RTÉ’s Late Late Toy Show Appeal,” he said.

“More than 2 million people in Ireland now have a Revolut account, so we are delighted to allow customers to donate to the appeal instantly from their Revolut app. As with all of our charities, we guarantee that every penny donated will benefit the charity – with no fees or costs.

“However, we have strengthened our giving system and encourage the people of Ireland to continue their generosity this year to support the incredible work of the Community Foundation for Ireland and help children in need.”

Revolut customers looking to donate at night should make sure they have the latest version of the app.

To donate, you need to go to the My Hub section and click Donate and find the RTÉ Toy Show appeal. Users can then choose how much they want to donate and tap donate.

In 2021, The Late Late Toy Show was RTÉ’s most watched television show with 1.8 million viewers.

It was viewed in 150 countries around the world – including all fifty states of the US and all eight Australian territories. Revolut is in its second year collaborating with RTÉ’s Late Late Toy Show Appeal
