PayPower is a pre-paid and re-loadable Visa Card donating to breast cancer awarness this month #Giveaway #PPBCA


  October is, Breast Cancer Awareness, month for me it is time to donate to breast cancer walks, and annual jean day at work. But this year there is a whole new way for me to donate. A way to donate to breast cancer research and track the way I spend. PayPower is a pre-paid and re-loadable Visa Card and we think it's great for controlling spending and teaching kids the value of managing their own money too. For the month of October PayPower will donate 50% of the purchase fee in a Safeway store to Stand Up 2 Cancer and the Safeway Foundation to raise awareness about fighting breast cancer.


Manage Your Money And Raise Breast Cancer Awareness

 There's an age-old concept for budgeting called "Envelope budgeting". The idea is simple. Divide up the cash you have on hand into envelopes with the expense category on it and you only get to spend what is in the envelope. When the envelope is empty you can't spend any more in that category, and if there is some left over at the end of the month you either add it to a savings account or roll it over for use the following month.
 
Kids today have a hard time understanding where money comes from. I overheard a child just the other day in a department store saying "Don't worry if you don't have enough money Mom, we can go to the grocery store and get more from the checkout." This is a common theme and why many kids don't understand budgets even exist. When teaching kids the value of money, a Prepaid Visa like a PayPower card can be hugely helpful. Jimmy needs a new pair of sneakers for basketball? Give him a card for an agreed upon amount and let him make his own shopping decision.
Modern allowance
Give the kids their allowance monthly in a form of a gift card. They only spend what they have and they learn how to weigh the value of what they buy. With PayPower you only spend what you have, so there are no overdraft fees or interest charges. Your card can be used everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted, including online or over the phone. Plus it is easy to reload!
  
Safer than cash
The funds on your card account are protected from unauthorized use by the Visa Zero Liability policy if your card is lost or stolen. The funds in your card account will be FDIC insured through the card Issuer, provided your card is registered. 

Support the Safeway Foundation and Stand Up To Cancer
As you may already know this month is NationalBreast Cancer Awareness Month and PayPower is donating half of the purchase fee on a PayPower card purchased in your local Safeway store between 10/01/13 and 11/03/13 to the SafewayFoundation and Stand Up To Cancer .
When breast cancer is detected early the 5 year survival rate is 98% (National Cancer Institute) and the Breast Cancer Foundation helps women create a plan for early detection, breast health education programs at community outreach programs across the country.
