meadow2Raising funds in an earth friendly manner is important to everyone.  Many of the traditional fundraising approaches leave a significant ecological footprint on the earth.  Popcorn tins, wrapping paper, and plastic cards that end up in the dump are costs that are typically not recognized in our enthusiasm to reach fundraising goals.

Lego is investing $150 Million over the next 15 years to reduce their ecological footprint, as plastic is not a biodegradable material.  Pope Francis recently said “The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth” and blamed it on our “throwaway culture.”

Benefit Mobile can help.  We can help your organization raise funds AND reduce your impact to the earth.  No plastic cards, no popcorn tins and wrapping paper.  We deliver gift cards electronically to your mobile phone for you to use while shopping for the things you really need.
