The card reading coat is meant to reduce the tension in asking for spare change

How many times have you passed a homeless person in the street and by the time you figured out you had some spare change on you, you’d already passed them? Well, thanks to Stefan Leendertse and Carsten van Berkel, a secure card reader is now available in a jacket for the homeless, making it easier for caring strangers to help the homeless.

With this card reading coat you can simply walk up and tap someone you want to help. Currently, the system debits one Euro from your account, going towards credits at participating non-profit organizations like shelters and food banks, so you know that your donation is being used for their needs and supporting their safety net.
