“I was in my third year of university doing an internship, and one day, I stayed really late and had to be back in early next morning. While I was cycling home I stopped to get a burrito as I didn’t have time to prepare food. I was about to pay when I noticed that my loyalty card was full; soon enough my free burrito was dangling in the front basket of my city bike. On the way home, I passed by a homeless man sitting on the side of the street. Passing him I looked at my burrito in the front basket and began thinking about the fact that I could have just paid for it and given the free one to him. Something that I don’t really value, as in, the free burrito, could have meant so much more to a person in need… So I kept thinking about it at home and I had this idea to create a loyalty card for charity. Instead of you getting your free burrito, coffee, or whatever, the businesses could make a charity donation in its place. I thought it was a brilliant idea, however, I was going back into my final year of university, so wouldn’t have the time to do so straight away. After my exams I found myself sitting at home in Tullamore, watching Netflix thinking about all my friends who already started to work up in Dublin. I thought I could just watch Netflix for the next two months before I start my new job or I could try and see how far I could develop my idea. After getting it to the point where I believed it could become something I got in touch with the lads and we started working on Stampify a little over a year ago. After lots of setbacks and challenges, we are ready to launch our not for profit loyalty card for charity which will feed a child in need for a week for the price of your free burrito…“
