Make a secure online donation using your smart phone!
Since more and more people aren’t carring cash any more, the WHAS Crusade for Children is giving donors a 21st Century option when a firefighter holds out a boot or bucket.
As firefighters prepare their boots and buckets for the 61st Annual WHAS Crusade for Children (June 7 & 8), they’re applying the latest technology…a QR code. With a QR code reader on your smart phone you can scan the code on Crusade T-shirts, stickers and cards which will take you directly to the donate page on the Crusade Web site.
Donors can now make a secure online donation directly from their cell phones.
Deandra Jackson of the Crusade staff explains, “We are just trying to come up with new ways for people to continue to donate to the Crusade. And we know that a lot of people don’t carry cash and coin anymore but most people always have their cell phones. So we decided that the best way would be to go with the QR code and donate directly from their phones.”
