Important Charity Update

At the beginning of this month we announced that, for the first time ever on Swagbucks, we are offering MULTIPLE charities to donate your Swag Bucks to until the end of the year.  We all want to help, sure, but we also all feel passionate about different things.  Now we’re giving you the option to spend your bucks where your heart is.

As many of you are aware, Superstorm Sandy has already taken the lives of many and affected millions with record-breaking damage. That’s why we’re now offering the opportunity to donate your Swag Bucks to the American Red Cross relief fund. The damage is still mounting; the time to help is now.  Click here to donate to the American Red Cross Superstorm Sandy Relief Fund.

We are also proud to announce that we’ve added another charity fund to our Swag Store that will open for your Swag Buck donations tomorrow, November 1st.  It’s The Gavi Alliance.  Simply put, the mission of the GAVI Alliance is saving children’s lives and protecting people’s health by increasing access to immunization in poor countries.  GAVI works to ally powerful organizations in the global health field like World Health Organization and UNICEF with cutting edge immunization research groups from around the world and major philanthropists like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

It is estimated that “The GAVI model” has contributed to the immunization of 325 million children, averting the deaths of over 5.5 million deaths.  In 2011, 73 countries were eligible for support from GAVI in making vaccines more readily available at a lower cost. Hepatitis B vaccination coverage in low income countries has increased from 17% to 74% during the time that GAVI has been operating.  Come back tomorrow and donate.

Let’s all come together and make an effort to help those in need.  Donate now to The American Red CrossSmile TrainUnicefThe Humane Society of the United States, and/or Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, and remember that every buck counts.
