Let’s #ChimeIn for Nepal

Weeks after the earthquake hit, Nepal still needs our help.

Though it’s easy for our attention to shift with the latest news cycle, Nepal still needs our help. New reports continue to shed light on the immense impact of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Up to 90 percent of clinics and schools have been destroyed, and the need there is growing.

Today we’re adding our support to the cause by encouraging Chime members to donate by giving them more spending power when they donate to UNICEF using Chime this month. If you’re considering contributing to the relief effort, whether you’re a Chime member or not, it’s important to do your homework on how best to help. A common tip is to avoid sending physical goods, and instead donate to organizations that you can trust. A great resource is Charity Navigator which has a helpful guide to giving in times of crisis as well as a list of current, four-star rated organizations such as UNICEF that allow donors to designate their contribution specifically to the relief effort in Nepal.

Chime’s mobile banking app is designed for a generation of consumers looking for a better way of banking, and one that also cares about giving back. A 2014 Millennial Impact Report shows that 87 percent of millennials gave to non-profits last year. They’re 80 million strong with more than $200 billion in annual spending power. At Chime, we’re dedicated to helping our members get more out of every dollar they earn and spend, and today we’re hopeful that we can help turn that spending power into spending that makes a difference.

Let’s #ChimeIn together for Nepal.
