"For the second Lockdown, we want to set an example," explains Pascal Schreiber, founder ofRegional Hero GmbH, which issues the Minga Card. "Because especially when stores, restaurants and other favorite places have to close, they need support and revenue."
The Minga Card works like a prepaid card that can be used digitally via an app and as a physical card. Amounts of between ten and 150 euros can be topped up. If you want to give a Christmas gift that will make people happy and at the same time strengthen local trade, the Minga Card is the right choice.
"With the Minga Card, we are creating an alternative to vouchers from large online retailers," says PascalSchreiber. "We want to support favorite places that make our cityscape more beautiful, that pay taxes here and create jobs. With the Minga-Card, the places that enrich Munich's cityscape get sales."
So far, about 30 favorite places have registered, including Photogenika, Simone Knits, EasyTiger, Louloute, Personal Novel, the theater and so on, La Pastateca, the GOP Theater,Bube&Dame, Maria Passagne and and and.

Here, other favorite places can easily register and become part of the Minga-Card network. The website also acts as a referral site for Munich's favorite places. When these places sell vouchers, they are redirected to their voucher store so that customers can also donate directly to their places during the lockdown. Customers can use the credit to buy services and products, or to donate the money to their favorite place. The idea: to help their favorite place without red tape.
The credit on the Minga Card is valid for three years; if it is not redeemed, part of the credit benefits local social projects.
