“We are proud to be a part of such an important fundraising campaign and use PickleJar to support our troops,” said Jeff James, CEO of PickleJar. “This type of campaign is exactly what PickleJar Insider was created for – to help activate radio listeners to take part and donate to those in need.”

PickleJar’s Insider feature helps on-air personalities connect with approved nonprofits and charities in times of need to activate fans, listeners, and donors to take action and support local causes seamlessly and securely using Apple Pay, Google Pay, contactless credit, and debit cards through a simple tap to their smartphone. With Insider, PickleJar Members can follow their preferred stations and favorite radio personalities in the same way they are already following their favorite artists – all located within the PickleJar app. By simply downloading the app or scanning a unique QR code at an event, PickleJar Insider helps radio stations activate their listening audience to give back with immediate results. Insider can also be used to raise support and funds for individual or time-limited campaigns, such as natural disaster response, humanitarian or emergency relief, radio-thons, seasonal charity drives, championing a mission or advocacy, significant local events and more. As always, nonprofits and associated causes keep 100% of all money raised.

“We’re so thrilled to partner with PickleJar to help show our brave men and women deployed all around that we’re thinking about them, that we are proud of them, and that we are grateful for their on-going sacrifices,” said Gordon Mays, Brand Manager of WRTB-FM (95.3 The Bull). “Oftentimes it’s very hard to feel like you are properly thanking a service member, but we’ve found that a surprise care package full of life’s awesome treats, including essentials and conveniences, and thank you letters can help shorten the distance between home and deployment, if even for a moment. That human part of it is really important.”
