TRIANGLE, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Toys for Tots makes history again today with the national launch of one of the first donation payments application for the battery-powered Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device. The innovative offering lets consumers donate Toys with every purchase.
When the Toys for Tots experience™ is selected, a consumer will donate towards a toy for a less fortune child anywhere they use their Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device. Consumers can also choose to donate an extra $1 with every purchase to earn a day of a holiday calendar. When the holiday calendar is complete, the consumer is mailed an ePlate™ exclusive gift free-of-charge.
Consumers can sign up for a battery-powered Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device at www.dynamicsinc.com/toysfortots
“We’re excited that Dynamics is offering consumers such as easy way to donate and connect with the Toys for Tots mission,” said retired Marine Lieutenant General Pete Osman, President and CEO of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “Anyone can now become a donor simply by doing their daily shopping.”
“We’re humbled to work with Toys for Tots to enable seamless giving through ePlate to help tomorrow’s youth,” said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics. “Now, a single ePlate swipe could not only buy you lunch, but bring a smile to an underprivileged child.”
The ePlate™ credit card device is subject to a credit approval.
How It Works
ePlate™ is connected to an ecosystem of experience™ providers that each deliver an individualized brand experience, through an experience™ application, to the consumer. Prior to a purchase, consumers select multiple experience™ applications on their smart phone, tablet, or computer to port to their ePlate™ device. At the time of purchase, the consumer can use different buttons on their ePlate™ device to select different experience™ applications. To learn more about the ePlate™ device, watch the video at www.dynamicsinc.com.
