Charity Arcade Accepts Any Coin Currency as Tokens: Insert Care

by Lambert Varias

If you’ve ever gone abroad you probably had spare coins from the country you visited. You can change it back to your country’s currency or keep it as a memento, but more often than not they’ll just end up stashed in your drawer, “for when you go back.” Sweden’s airport agency Swedavia and the Red Cross have a brilliant suggestion: use those foreign coins as arcade tokens.

Red Cross and Swedavia’s Charity Arcades are currently found at Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Göteborg Landvetter Airport. These interactive donation boxes will let you play Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga or Space Invaders in exchange for any coin. As you may have guessed, all of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross.

Add Super Hexagon, Battletoads and I Wanna Be the Guy to the Charity Arcade and they’ll have enough money to end world hunger within an hour. That and destroyed cabinets.
