Teenager creates innovative app which lets users snooze for charity

A 19-year-old from Marshfield, Ronan Finnegan, has created an innovative app which turns people’s laziness into charitable donations.

According to YouGov, 26.3% of the population use their mobile phones as an alarm. Mr Finnegan took this into account and created the WakeOrDonate app, which makes a donation to charity every time the user presses the snooze button.

Several charities have already shown their interest in the app, which has raised over $3,000 on crowdfunding website sellanapp.com.

Ronan Finnegan said: “It’s a win, win situation. Every time someone presses their snooze button they get more time in bed and a charity will get a donation. There isn’t anything similar on the market at the moment – nothing has the positive consequences this will. People have obviously had the idea before but have not developed it, so people seem quite excited about what I am doing.”
