SwipeGood Donates To Charity With Credit Card Sales

Throughout the year, at times we lose sight of people that may not be as lucky as ourselves, and particularly at Christmas it seems to be even more relevant. At a time when we may be spending time with our loved ones, opening presents and having a lovely wholesome Christmas dinner, spare a thought for those less fortunate. This is when SwipeGood comes into play.

As Mashable reported, on signing up to SwipeGood, the total of every purchase made is added up, and on paying the total figure with your credit card, the change as it were is donated to a charity of your choice. If you look at this over a monthly period, users to the scheme will end up donating at least $20 each per month. SwipeGood will only take 5% of all these amounts which pays for their overall operating expenses.

If this is something that you would like to join in with for the good of others, you may be interested to hear of the holiday scheme currently running, allowing your nearest and dearest to join in with supporting a charity. By signing up to the scheme, it takes away that stressful decision to know what to give in terms of amount and at what time of year? SwipeGood does it all for you.

Currently, supporting banks to the scheme include that of Blippy and American Express, with more to follow in the near future. Head on over to lalawag.com with a unique inside view with the founders of SwipeGood.
