Annual Campaign Raises Money to Aid Children Living in Poverty
City of Industry, CA – June 1, 2016 – Alongside helping its merchants “take charge” by enabling them to accept credit and debit card payments, US Bankcard Service (USBS) also holds a firm belief in helping those that are less fortunate. USBS was, therefore, a proud contributor last month to Red Nose Day 2016, a campaign dedicated to raising money to help children who are most in need, both in the U.S. and in some of the poorest communities in the world. Throughout the month of May, USBS and its employees donated and encouraged others to donate to the cause, concluding on May 26, this year’s Red Nose Day.
Created by writer-director Richard Curtis in 1988 and run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc., the idea of Red Nose Day was built upon the foundation that comedy, celebrities and mass media, can help raise money and awareness of poverty to save and change millions of lives. Dozens of big names in film, television, music and more participated in this year’s Red Nose Day campaign and they, together with contributors like USBS, helped propel the campaign to a final fundraising tally of over $30 million.
Over the years, USBS’s dedication to philanthropy has been wide-reaching. Previous contributions include donations to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, WLAKids and, most recently, The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. USBS and its employees have also participated in multiple American Red Cross blood donation drives and AIDS Walk Los Angeles, along with contributing to relief efforts in Taiwan due to Typhoon Morakot in 2009 and also efforts in Japan due to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.
