Best of Belfast: How ESTHER is getting financial support to those in need during COVID-19

  • - by Best of Belfast

    ESTHER is a pocket-to-pocket giving app that allows donors to directly fund people in need.

    The Belfast tech start-up is leading the way in peer-to-peer donations with their revolutionary app that puts transparency at the core.

    100% of the money you donate goes directly to a prepaid card that prevents spending on things like gambling and alcohol. Plus with monthly updates from the person receiving funds, you’ll be a part of their transformational journey every step of the way.

    In today’s show we caught up with Newry born and bred cofounder Carol Rossborough to chat about how their startup is supporting the most vulnerable members of our community during the COVID-19 Crisis.

    She also slips in some absolute nuggets of wisdom including:

    • How to recover from burnout

    • Why investing in your marriage is essential

    • And finding our identity outside of work
