So, I know you're all awesome peeple and you want to help the world. I know you do. But philanthropy takes time. And effort. Ugh. If only it were instant and you didn't have to think about it...

I've got it. SwipeGood rounds up all of your credit card purchases to the nearest dollar and allows you to donate the difference to the charity of your choice. It's the easiest way to give to charity!

You can choose a specific charity you'd like to donate to and then switch your charity any time you want, and they're always adding new ones. Some of the charities they support now are charity: water (love them!), Actions Against Hunger International, Buy This Satellite (whut whut?), Outfest, and lots more. Also, while it's a good thing that the change from your purchases adds up quickly, you can always set a monthly limit for your roundups so you don't end up donating more than you can afford. Couldn't be easier, my friends.


  1. An absolutely fabulous idea - I LIKE it ..

    Umm I wonder if this is available for Swedish cards too ?!!

    PS Allison - I love your writing :)

  2. Jasmin, why thank you! *blush* Tell you what, I don't know about Swedish cards, but if you check back tomorrow, I may have an answer for you. Please hold...

  3. Jasmin, here's your answer direct from Swipegood:

    "at this point we can only support US Charities and cardholders. We're planning to expand and will make sure to let you know as soon as we do!"

    In the meantime, don't hesitate to start looking for charities in Sweden that you can support and maybe I will start looking into more international orgs to feature on the blog myself.
