How 'bout a little change for PNOLA?

Why not take the act of purchasing and turn it into an act of giving?  Phoenix of New Orleans has partnered with SwipeGood, the company that maximizes your loose change for charity.  To get started, all you have to do is go to our page on Swipegood and sign up your credit or debit card.  SwipeGood rounds up your purchases to the next dollar, and lets you donate the change to PNOLA.  How good will it feel to go about your every day shopping knowing that each purchase you make helps us cover the expenses that we don't charge to our homeowners, like gas, tools, etc.?

I can tell you it feels great -- I recently signed up with my personal debit card, and after completing my registration SwipeGood informed me that if I had been registered for the prior 30 days, my purchases would have added up to a $9.88 donation to PNOLA.  That might not sound like much, but that's almost $10 a month in change from someone who makes a (very very very) meager AmeriCorps stipend.  Imagine how much change you can accumulate each month!  SwipeGood also allows you to set a limit to how much is donated each month or pause your account, so you dont find yourself giving us more money than you can afford to, or donating when you're having financial troubles yourself.  It also allows you to simply choose to give a fixed amount each month that isn't based on the change from your purchases.

Learn more, enroll your credit or debit card today with SwipeGood, and change the world around you, one purchase at a time.
