You Can Now Make a Donation for Cancer Patients by Bankcard in Circle K Stations

Starting from December, all the Circle K customers can ask the cashiers of service stations to add the desired donation (starting from 1 euro) to their receipt. You can also make your donation in the donation boxes at stations, where we still collect donations for cancer patients. 

"We are glad that our customers have well received the opportunity to donate at our service stations. We raised all in all 2673 euros in cash for the foundation in November alone," said Diana Veigel, the marketing manager of Circle K in Estonia. "During our cooperation, we have received feedback from our customers, requesting for an opportunity to add their donation to their receipt and pay for it by bankcard. Now we have the pleasure of offering such a convenient opportunity to those who would like to use it." 

"Circle K is the first company in Estonia that enables its customers to add a donation to their receipt. The practice is quite widespread in the US, for instance. This allows us to extend the possibilities for benefactors even more and ensure hope and longer life for all cancer patients in Estonia," said Katrin Kuusemäe, the CEO of the Gift of Life Cancer Treatment Foundation.

The cancer treatment foundation's stationary donation boxes have been in all 59 Circle K service stations in Estonia since last summer. People have donated thousands of euros for cancer patients via them.
