First, I wanted to clarify a typo I made on my intro page for my website. I had stated that I would donate all of my ad revenues including Orange Key bonuses to charity. I honestly meant to say "part of" my Orange Key bonuses. After all getting people to sign up for Tangerine isn't simply achieved by letting the ad just run on my website. Regularly I forward links to my Twitter (daily), Google Plus and other accounts encouraging readers to make the smarter choice and switch to the best bank I've encountered out there.
I mean, seriously, can you name another bank that pays you INTEREST on your CHEQUING (checking) account?! I can not. I was with RBC before and for the same monthly access to MY money I was PAYING $10.95 in service charges. In two months with Tangerine, my combined accounts have earned me over $3.00 in interest and saved me over $22 in service charges! Don't you think you should try Tangerine? You can find the link on various pages here on my website. Sign up now and you'll get a bonus when you open an account with a reasonable qualifying deposit.
Okay so now that that plug is done I wanted to tell you I noticed that I had a Bonus Payout deposited into my account. I couldn't confirm exactly where it had come from but I did notice a check mark next to the $50 level. So, I have just made a $50 donation to the Second Harvest food services in Toronto, Ontario through the Canada Helps organization.
For those of you who don't know who Second Harvest is their mission is "to rescue and deliver fresh, surplus food to feed people experiencing hunger". They take fresh surplus food from a variety of sources and redistribute it to 2533 social service organizations across Toronto..
I did say when I made my donations I would blog about it here, so, here you go. I just wanted to take this opportunity to say 'thank you'.
UPDATE: The money was a bonus for me joining Tangerine Bank, doesn't matter I still donated $50 to the Second Harvest.
