Burning joss paper is in the process of venerating the departed or gods in both Taoism and Chinese folklore religion. But unfortunately, burning it causes a big quantity of carbon dioxide and harmful substances, which are harmful to our health and the earth. So we design an electronic ghost money burner, operated like an ATM. This ATM can't get the money. Every user owns a specific debit card in which they would deposit the real currency. They would buy the virtual joss paper and offerings via their debit cards and worship ancestors on the screen through Interactive mode. In addition, all users paid the cash will be donated to charity.
