People can swipe down the middle of the poster to donate 2 euros to relief organization Misereor's cause.

For more than 50 years, relief organization Misereor has been creating development initiatives that fight against poverty and injustice in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. The organization takes every Euro it receives to support projects driven and owned by the disadvantaged and run by local organizations.

To encourage people to donate to the organization,
Hamburg-based agency Kolle Rebbe created an interactive donation poster that readily accepts credit cards and shows the donors the result of their donation on the spot.

The Social Swipe is an interactive poster that has a slit in the middle where people can insert and swipe down their credit card to make a donation of 2 Euros. Swiping a credit card triggers an animation sequence that shows just what that simple donation can do to help the poor and disadvantaged.

For example, the digital poster would display the bound hands of an imprisoned child and as the person swipes his or her credit card, the card cuts through the bonds of the child and sets the child free. In another sequence, the digital display would show a loaf of bread and as the donor swipes their credit card, the card cuts off a slice of bread to feed the hungry.

Sascha Hanke, Executive Creative Director at Kolle Rebbe, said,

It was a challenge. All processes connected with the donation had to be synchronized. When the card is swiped a secure process quickly authenticates it and in a split second activates a film sequence on screen.

The interactive donation poster was created with help from Stripe.com, a leading mobile payment provider. The interactive posters are currently installed at international airports.

The Social Swipe provides people with an easy and engaging way to make a donation. It also gives them a visualization of where their donation goes to. When the donors receive their credit card statements, they will see the donation included in their summary of transactions along with an option to turn their one-time donation into a monthly one by visiting this site.
