About Pennies: 

The Pennies Foundation, a registered charity, has created Pennies, the electronic charity box. We're all familiar with the idea of dropping our change into the charity box sitting on the shop counter. The electronic charity box is exactly the same idea but it works instead when we pay by card or electronically. That means that it works just as well for online or high-street shopping.

Pennies makes giving to charity easy and affordable for all: customers can simply press 'YES' on the Chip and PIN machine in-store, or click the 'Donate' button online.  The request is for micro-donations - literally a few pennies (1p-99p). The Pennies Foundation then ensures that all the donations are received by the charities named on the virtual tin.

The retailer chooses the charity or charities to benefit from the majority of the amount collected with the remainder split equally across ten other UK charities which cover a range of causes like cancer, children, homelessness and the elderly.

It's quick: one small step in the payment process, it's the consumers' choice and it's private too.  There's no pressure or commitment to give and every penny goes to charity.  

Micro-donations are powerful. There are 43 million card holders in the UK today, and around 1 million card transactions an hour. If the UK's card holders donated a penny a day, well over £150m would be raised for charity every year.

Pennies launched with its first retailer, Domino's Pizza in November 2010.  Since then The Zizzi, Travelodge and The Entertainer have also adopted Pennies and others will launch soon.
