“Our vision is to create a delightful mobile payment experience for our customers, from shopping to taking public transport. Now, customers can also ‘Dash with a Difference’ and do their bit for charity,” she added.
Interested donors can learn how to ‘Dash with a Difference’ and make mobile donations at the Dash booth at the Community Chest Heartstrings Walk 2015-SG50 Community Heartbeats on Aug 7, Singtel said in a statement.
All one needs to do is login to the Dash app and enter ‘7777’ to make contributions of any amount up to S$999.
