How often have you given the “no receipt for me” wave-off to a cashier? Well, in Taiwan, receipts aren’t just boring old pieces of paper – they’re a chance to win millions. Everything you pay for (and every receipt you get) is a ticket to enter the government’s Receipt Lottery, with prizes ranging from NT$200 to NT$10 million.
According to a new campaign from McDonald’s, many people, Gen Z especially, drop their receipts into donation boxes at stores across the country. These donated receipts are a major source of income for charities like Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), but with the rise of digital payments, they have all but disappeared, out of sight and therefore out of mind.
To increase donations to RMHC, McDonald’s needed a unique solution for making receipts visible again.
McDonald’s and Leo Burnett Taiwan partnered with up-and-coming new media artists to create a series of downloadable wallpapers. Each design is more than art – it’s a digital lottery ticket. With 35 designs to choose from, every Donation Wallpaper includes a barcode, and when scanned at any cashier, the receipt is automatically donated to RMHC.
“Gen Z can’t live without their phone, and the screen they see most of all is their mobile phone wallpaper,” said Jin Yang, Creative Partner at Leo Burnett Taiwan.
“With this in mind, we came up with an idea that makes receipt donation impossible to ignore – every time someone wakes up their phone, it’s a reminder to do good.”
Donation Wallpapers can be scanned at retailers across Taiwan, making every transaction in any store an opportunity to donate to RMHC.
Since launching Donation Wallpaper, RMHC has seen a huge spike in online donation growth, with more wallpapers to be unveiled throughout the year.
