Pick Up Some Sunscreen and Help a Great Cause at Outside Lands
By: Oktay Dogramaci
Hi there, my name is Oktay Dogramaci and I’m the head of our cause-related products team here at PayPal. We’re using PayPal innovations to build new ways for everyone to support the causes they care about as part of their daily lives.
As we announced last week, PayPal is proud to be sponsoring the 5th annual Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, August 10 – 12. While you’re there you can check out the PayPal Convenience Store, which will be the go-to spot for essentials at the festival: sunscreen, lip balm, a blanket, and more.
And today I’m proud to tell you that 100 percent of everything we sell at the store will benefit two great nonprofits: charity:water, which brings clean water to people of developing countries, and the Berkeley-based Seva Foundation, which provides health services for the underprivileged around the world. And you get to pick which nonprofit your purchases will support. If you rent a PayPal Locker to stash your goodies during the show, 100% of that rental will go to charity:water and the Seva Foundation too.
So whether you pay with a credit or debit card using PayPal Here, or use your mobile phone and pin or PayPal Card to pay with PayPal in-store checkout, you can feel great knowing you helped give clean water or health services to someone who really needs it.
This is just one example of how PayPal is redefining money and the act of giving right now. Come visit us at the PayPal tent to learn more and make your purchases count!
