Mamas, do you get tired of writing checks to your child’s school and then still having to participate in other fundraisers? I’ve found a new app to help make giving back simple!
Planet Fundraiser, based out of Birmingham and now making its way to the Music City, is a free app available on both Android and iPhone. After trying to raise $300 for his daughter’s T-ball team by approaching local businesses, Planet Fundraiser Founder, Kasey Birdsong knew he had to make fundraising easier for families who are looking for ways to support our kids’ schools and local causes while juggling busy schedules and tight budgets.
- Krystal: When you’ve got a car full of hungry kids to feed before band practice and are heading through the drive thru, why not make those meals count at Krystal? All Krystal restaurants donate 50% of your first app entry, so you can feed your family while helping fund their schools!
- Shipt: Do you ever wish that your groceries would magically appear at your front door? Shipt allows you to add groceries to your “virtual cart” via an app on your phone. You can select your grocery store, add your list and the Shipt shopper will go purchase them for you and bring to your door while also donating a portion back to your community!
- Local Taco: Treat your family to a taco night by taking the kids to Local Taco on Murphy Road! With a neighborhood feel and freshly-made Tex-Mex, it’s a way to switch things up at dinner or grab a fun lunch in between weekend soccer games to save yourself some time in the kitchen. Also, every momma needs a date night, and date nights at Local Taco feel guilt-free since every receipt gives back to your kids’ schools and more!
Planet Fundraiser truly makes giving back so easy! All you have to do is download the app, snap a picture of your receipt and select the charity or organization that you would like to receive funding.
