Vitalah, creators of Oxylent, has chosen the Whole Planet Foundation as the beneficiary of its monthly Payments in Kind Community Give Back Program donation. The donations will help support the foundation’s mission to alleviate poverty through microcredit for impoverished entrepreneurs around the world.
The Payments in Kind Community Give Back Program is an exclusive program offered by National Processing Solutions [NPS] to help businesses support charities, causes, and service organizations in the local community. Merchants simply sign up for this special credit card processing option at no charge, which allows them to donate 20% of NPS’ gross revenue generated by the merchant to any charity of their choice via monthly donations. The charitable organization receives the donation from NPS directly in the business’s name. For more information, visit http://www.paymentsinkind.com/index.html.
