Rounding Up A Bill to Donate Money

The charity Pennies has launched a new donation idea in the UK, whereby  Charities to benefit from scheme that asks customers paying online to donate by rounding up their bills to the nearest pound.

Pennies, which raises money for charities through electronic transactions, has set up a deal with the pizza chain Domino’s. When a customer buys a pizza online they will be asked whether they would like to top up their bill to the nearest pound, with the extra money going to charity. Seventy-five per cent of any donation will go to Domino’s chosen charity, the British Special Olympics.  The other 25 per cent will be evenly distributed between nine charities that Pennies has chosen.

The Pennies Foundation has created Pennies, the electronic charity box. Pennies is designed to make giving to charity easy, quick and affordable. It’s new, inclusive and will raise additional money for many UK registered charities.

Full details of this can be found on the Third Sector website.
