Just What You've Been Looking for: A New Way to Support Us!

August 9, 2011 | 826 Blog Post

Guess what, guys? There’s a new way to support 826michigan! (Fanfare, sparklers, raucous applause. Oh! Someone brought fireworks; awesome!)

Your good friends over at the ol’ 826 have just partnered with SwipeGood.com, a web-based service that rounds up users’ debit or credit card purchases to the nearest dollar and allows them to donate the difference to the charity of their choice. (It’s so simple! It’s so affordable! It allows your pocket change to MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY EVERY SINGLE DAY!)

Add it to your list of great ways to give to 826michigan! The system is incredibly easy to use. To save on credit card fees, SwipeGood adds all those left over cents and will only charge you once monthly. On average, these donations add up to $15.00 each month. But, you’re thinking, I have a lot of charges every day that end in $.01. I love you, but I can’t give you that much! What do I do? Fear not, dear hearts. SwipeGood users are able to set a monthly cap on their donation as well, to avoid over charging their accounts or making inconsistent gifts. (Why not just give it a shot?)

To enroll in the program today, visit their website and register your card. And, as ever, contact us with any questions!
