Swipe Your Credit Card; Get a Donation in Your Name

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Feb. 24, 2011) – Helping Food For The Poor serve the destitute has never been easier, and now a two-day campaign in March with SwipeGood will provide a bigger boost to charitable giving.

On March 2 and 3, anyone who signs up their credit card for a SwipeGood donation to Food For The Poor will have a $10 donation made by SwipeGood to the charity. Food For The Poor has teamed up with SwipeGood, a company that helps nonprofit organizations make fundraising more efficient for those who are not into texting or online giving.

"Food For The Poor partnered with SwipeGood with the goal of increasing our help to the poorest of the poor by implementing new fundraising efforts. We believe this latest campaign will allow anyone who wants to help the charity to multiply their donation during this two-day period. We rely on the generosity of our donors, and we're grateful for the help they provide," said Angel Aloma, Executive Director of Food For The Poor.

Here's how it works: SwipeGood rounds up all of your credit card purchases to the nearest dollar on a monthly basis with your spare change going to the charity. You can also cap your monthly donations, so you‘re in complete control of the amount of money you donate each month.

Your spare change can go a long way to help a starving child. The average monthly donation of a SwipeGood user can empower Food For The Poor to feed a child for 6 months.

Please visit Food For The Poor's SwipeGood profile and sign up your card, round up your purchases, and donate the change to Food For The Poor. If you do this on March 2 or 3, even more lives will be saved.

Food For The Poor, the third-largest international relief and development organization in the nation, does much more than feed millions of hungry poor in 17 countries of the Caribbean and Latin America. This interdenominational Christian agency provides emergency relief assistance, clean water, medicines, educational materials, homes, support for orphans and the aged, skills training and micro-enterprise development assistance, with more than 96 percent of all donations going directly to programs that help the poor.
