Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) October 04, 2013
A new way for schools, teams and nonprofits to raise money is expanding to five new cities, The hCard announced today.
The hCard, a nationwide “show and save” discount card and mobile app, is launching its 100 percent free fundraising program in five North Carolina cities in the Triad and Triangle.
“This fundraising program is an opportunity for schools,teams, nonprofits and religious organizations, to raise thousands of dollars for their causes,” said Sandra Burnett, founder of The hCard.
“We’re raising growth capital to support this strategic expansion to several cities — an online and mobile patent-pending discount program, over six years in the making,” Burnett said. “We want to make sure everyone can save on everyday items, while supporting local fundraising efforts of schools and nonprofit in their communities.”
The hCard® program was founded on the belief that service should be recognized. Consequently, the card is free for military and veterans on the mobile platform, which is Military Discounts powered by hCard. Organizations that sign up with the initial hCard Free Fundraising Program can earn 100 percent of The hCard sales.
Local businesses can sign up to be part of The hCard’s nationwide directory, reaching new customers while supporting their community’s efforts.
“This program brings such value to local business owners by offering a unique way to get their location, contact info and discount out to consumers,” said Mike Florio, hCard CFO. “While at the same time, an hCard local business actually supports local schools, religious organizations and other groups.”
