Stand Up: Popular Community Bank, MasterCard Team Up to Fight Cancer

From mid-July through the month of September, Popular Community Bank and MasterCard are teaming up to raise money to find a cure for cancer.

Between July 10 and Sept. 28, when you sign for a purchase of $10 or more on your debit MasterCard card when paying for a meal, MasterCard will make a one cent donation to Stand Up To Cancer – up to $4 million*. Stand Up To Cancer’s goal is to accelerate groundbreaking cancer research to get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives.

Stand Up To Cancer has a fantastic Facebook page, where you can learn more about how to earn points towards incredible prizes while helping a great cause.

The highlight of the movement will come tonight, Sept. 7, during a one-hour event that will be broadcast commercial-free across the country. ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC are donating one hour of simultaneous commercial-free primetime television (8:00-9:00 PM ET & PT) for the nationally televised fundraising special live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Among cable networks committed to broadcasting the live event are HBO, HBO Latino, Bio, LMN (Lifetime Movie Network), Logo, MLB Network, mun2, Palladia and VH1.

Check out the website – StandUpToCancer.org – for more information about the event. There is also a designated Twitter account – @SU2C – and a YouTube channel for the live broadcast.
