Want to change the world every time you swipe your card? There’s an app for that

Brighter Children is always looking to partner with others in the community with positive, innovative ideas worth spreading. That’s why when Bstow approached us to be part of their beta testing, we enthusiastically said, ‘yes!’

Bstow is a free micro-donation app that allows users to donate their spare change to charity with every purchase they make on a credit card, debit card or bank account.

Using Bstow means Brighter Children’s donors have a creative new way to help educate some of the 250 million children in the world who still cannot read or write.

And it’s as simple as buying coffee every morning.

Users can link their accounts to Bstow and pick their favorite charity. After that, the app automatically rounds up each purchase to the nearest dollar to donate the spare change to that charity.

The only thing users have to do after that is go about their daily lives and feel incredible knowing they’re doing their part to make the world a better place.




What an awesome way to raise funds for and make a difference in the lives of the kids we’re sponsoring here at Brighter Children!

The platform is incredibly easy to use, and you can set a maximum donation amount each month. There is a monthly minimum of $10. Bstow was founded by Jason Grad in 2015. On the cutting edge of technology, Bstow recently was accepted into Techstars, a prestigious startup accelerator.

It’s always easy to find reasons not to donate. With Bstow, consider that these micro-donations equate to the change that falls out of your pockets, you leave on the table at restaurants and find in seat cushions years later.

Why not help change the world with it instead?



We’d love to have you join us as part of this beta testing! To donate your spare change to Brighter Children, please visit our Bstow campaign page.

Brighter Children and Bstow will be holding a happy hour on April 28th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Juniper (35th St. between 7th and 8th Ave). If you’ll be in New York during that time, we’d be delighted to have you join us to get to know the Bstow and Brighter Children team!
