Canadian Legion unveils tap-enabled poppy donation boxes

This Remembrance Day, Canadians will have the option of picking up a poppy and donating to the Royal Canadian Legion through a new tap-enabled donation box.

The electronic donation boxes were created in partnership by the Legion and HSBC Bank Canada as a health safety measure amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

To use the donation box, Canadians can use a tap-enabled credit card, mobile phone or wearable device and place it near a glowing poppy logo on the front of each donation box. The tap will then automatically make a $2 donation to the Legion and the user can pick up a poppy pin.

The donations will go towards helping Canadian veterans and their families.

Approximately 200 electronic donation boxes will be set up across Canada between Oct. 30 and Nov. 11. Roughly 25,000 traditional poppy boxes will also be available across the country.

Besides donating to the annual poppy campaign, Canadians can support the organization by purchasing a Legion poppy mask or by donating online.
