Let’s chat! “This post was sponsored by DAV. All opinions are my own.” The DAV (Disabled American Veterans) @davhq has launched a new, innovative and festive donor challenge to support veterans by donating spare change. The DAV Spare Change program allows donors to round up purchases on a credit or debit card on a monthly basis to automatically donate “spare change” to give hope for a brighter 2021 to disabled veterans. Learn more at www.dav.org.

The DAV Spare Change Program

The DAV Spare Change program allows participants to “swipe for good” with each credit card swipe made during the holidays. From stuff for the kids, to dinner with friends, or decor for the house, the Spare Change program helps veterans of all generations get the benefits they’ve earned through DAV’s no-cost services. For example, a DAV Spare Change donor purchases a pair of gloves for the cold weather upon us for $7.84 on a linked debit card or credit card. DAV automatically “rounds up” that transaction to the next dollar and that spare change, in this example, $0.16, is donated to help injured and ill veterans. This makes me feel warm all over.

When to USE

Next time you are out shopping for a warm cape, boots, or anything you may need use a credit card linked to the DAV Spare Change program and help disabled veterans who are in need! 

You can even use it for a photoshoot like me at Stephanie Williams Portraits and have your “spare change” donated to veterans in need. 

Literally any time you shop you can make a difference! 

3 EASY Steps 

Anyone can participate! Just three easy steps: 

  1. ENROLL. Enroll in the program online. Link a credit or debit card you use for daily purchases. 
  2. SHOP. Use your card for holiday or everyday purchases, online shopping for the most wanted toys for your kids or grandkids, or a new wreath for the front door. In other words, spend like you normally would. 
  3. HELP VETERANS. Every purchase made on your card will automatically round up to the nearest dollar and your spare change is donated directly to DAV to give hope to veterans! 

“During their service, most members of our U.S. military missed holidays with family and friends and many now live with the injuries and illnesses as a result of that service,” said Marc Burgess, national adjutant and CEO of DAV. “They made many sacrifices to defend what we hold sacred. We’re thankful to those Americans who will generously make a small sacrifice of spare change to say thank you and happy holidays.” 

Be a life changer for disabled American Veterans. Round up your spare change every day. Donate your spare change and your small change adds up for veterans. Shop for good to help disabled American veterans and make that difference today.  I bet it will make you feel warm too! Remember small change can make a big difference!
