REVOLUT co-founder Vlad Yatsenko has donated €100,000 to The Late Late Toy Show Appeal.
The whopping sum was pledged – along with a promise to match up to €1 million of further donations made via the Revolut App this weekend – following some technical problems with the app on Friday which may have prevented donations from going through.
Overall, the appeal has now reached an eye-watering sum of €4.5 million.
Mr Yatsenko said: “What an incredible support RevolutApp customers gave to a worthy charity RTELateLateShow!
“Granted, there were some challenges at the peek of the live campaign. So, I've personally donated €100K, and will also match any further donations this weekend via RevolutApp up to €1M.”
Not all Twitter users were impressed with the gesture, though.
Showing you really can’t please everybody, Killian Mangan tweeted: “With a net worth of $1.1 billion, €100k is pocket change (0.009%) for this guy, which makes this a great value PR campaign for Revolut.”
The app had some speedbumps recently, as on Black Friday customers were having unable to sign into their accounts, make card payments, or transfers.
The show is committed to helping numerous Irish charities.
