So what is SCRIP - Gift Cards?
So, what is Scrip – it is a way of paying for purchases that helps charities support their work – watch the Video’s to the left to get a full picture. Instead of paying with Cash, check or Credit/Debit Cards you pre-purchase gift cards or eGift Cards that you use. You pay the face value of the card but we are able to get it at a discount from 1%- 16%. The difference is ours to invest and use to help families around the world.
Specifically, for Marketplace Manna it allows our supporters to buy almost everything they want and help us care for families around the world. The funds we make on this are part of our Development fund.
Our development fund is used to expand or start new Livelihood Groups or business in places all over the world. We also make donations to other groups that are working to help families as well.
With Scrip we are not asking you to buy something you don’t want but rather asking you to plan a bit ahead and make the money you are going to spend go farther.
Here is how it will add up if done diligently:
The Smith family Monthly Budget – Scrip Discount and donation to Marketplace Manna:
Spent discount to MM
Gas 200 2%= $4
Groceries 500 3%= $15
Eating Out 300 8%= $24
Clothes 200 8%= $16
Drug Stores 200 5%= $10
Home Improvements 200 4%= $8
Entertainment 100 5%= $5
Total 1700 $82 per month to MM
$82 a month times 12 months is almost $1000 annually that helps families that you can give if you just plan ahead and use Scrip.
When you add Gifts and Vacations it will add up.
