It could be argued that one of the best things you can do during the COVID-19 pandemic is to practise kindness towards others.
And thanks to a recent partnership between American Express, Two Good and Deliveroo, Aussie credit card holders can get a jump start on their random act of kindness.
From today, American Express customers are encouraged to use their credit card on Deliveroo and in return, AMEX will give one of 3,000 meals to womens’ refuges in New South Wales.
The three-way partnership came in response to the 75% increase in Google searches for domestic violence help since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March.
“The work that Two Good does is invaluable to women experiencing domestic violence or family violence, but increased pressure on those in unsafe situations and support services caused by the COVID-19 crisis has made their role in the community more important than ever,” said general counsel from American Express and advisory board member of Two Good, Ryan Rayfield.
“With the current surge in demand for food delivery services, we’ve made it as easy as possible for our card members to make a real difference to those in need, at no additional cost to themselves.”
Aside from providing meals to women in need, Two Good also supports, trains and employs Aussies living in shelters by providing financial stability, independence and offers a pathway to long-term employment.
“When you support Two Good, you’re not only providing a nutritious meal to someone in need, but paid employment to women who are on the verge of homelessness in the near future,” said Two Good founder, Rob Caslick.
If you’re an American Express credit card customer interested in joining the cause, you’ll need to place a Deliveroo order before June 12.
