BMO MasterCard helps raise funds for MADD Canada

Two years ago, my beautiful mother-in-law’s life was cut tragically short by an impaired driver. In honor of Donna Jean Kennie, please don’t drink and drive. Impaired driving is 100% preventable. Think about it.

Did you know that the Bank of Montreal (BMO) offers a BMO MADD Canada MasterCard?

Hubby and I both had regular BMO MasterCard’s and switched them over about a year ago. What that means is every time we use our BMO MADD Canada MasterCard to make a purchase, a small donation is made to MADD Canada from the Bank of Montreal at no additional cost to us. How uberlicious is that?!

How much you ask?!?! Hmmm. I am not entirely sure. I have an email into BMO and will let you know as soon as I find out. Regardless, we know that every little bit counts and adds up! Not only that, but every time we use our cards, we feel a sense of pride at such a visual show of support (and awareness) for MADD Canada.

BMO MADD Canada MasterCard

Seeee….aren’t they pretty?!?!? I just love it!!

Switching over was easy. We just called the bank, told them we wanted the BMO MADD Canada MasterCard and within a week, we received the new cards in the mail.

If you don’t already have one, right now is a great time to apply because they have a sweet promo on. If you apply by February 29, 2012, you will receive a credit of $25 on your account the first time you spend $25 or more by April 30, 2012. The deets are here (the offer is limited to new accounts).

Get cash to spend cash – wow!

And hubby and I connected our cards to our AIR MILES®† account so not only do we support MADD Canada but we get rewarded with 1 AIR MILES®† reward mile for every $20 we spend (you can also opt for 0.5% CashBack®).

Three cheers for BMO for putting this great affinity card program together. I love that we can help MADD Canada save lives and support victims in a way that’s easy and affordable!

Support MADD Canada and follow them on Facebook, Twitter (@maddcanada), and on the Web.

For 2012, I would like to start focusing more on what IS being done to eradicate impaired driving or bring awareness to this crime. I want to focus on the good…so if you have any stories, websites, videos that made you sit up and say “wow”, please share them with me….
