Consumer Payment Card News


Between now and the end of October American Express will donate one cent, for every purchase made on an AmEx Card at participating merchants, to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. AmEx expects to raise $500,000 in the “Charge for the Cure” campaign. This is the fourth consecutive year that American Express will raise money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. Since 1998, through similar promotions, AmEx has donated $1.3 million to help battle breast cancer. The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. Today, the Foundation is an international organization with a network of volunteers working through local Affiliates and Komen Race for the Cure events to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by advancing research, education, screening and treatment.
