Ep165: Retailers Have a New Option. DipJar is a Donation Box for Credit Cards

Today on CauseTalk Radio, Megan and I talk to Ryder Kessler, CEO of DipJar, a donation box for credit cards that is a major improvement on the traditional coin-fed canister.

Supporters can "dip" to leave a one-step donation with any credit or debit card. You can also review DipJar activity in real time on your smartphone, and change the preset dollar amount whenever you want.

On the show, Megan, Ryder and I discuss:
