NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Cause Direct is excited to announce that Mjoy Group, a sports and entertainment company that coordinates special events and VIP experiences for corporations, is the latest business to sign up for Cause Direct’s morally conscious payment processing services.

Whenever Mjoy’s clients make payments using a credit or debit card, a percentage of the transaction amount is automatically donated to a charity the company supports. Mjoy will direct these proceeds to Mission Hospital in Laguna Beach, Calif., a charity that is close to the heart of founder Michelle Joy Martin.

Martin experienced this hospital’s love and compassion first-hand when her husband was sick. “The care my husband received while at Mission Hospital was exceptional — they saved his life,” Martin says. “Cause Direct allows us to contribute money to them during the normal course of processing credit and debit card transactions. This is something we’re doing anyway, so being able to support a great cause at the same time is a no-brainer.”

“We are thrilled to have Mjoy Group on board as a Cause Direct merchant,” says Cause Direct President and CEO, Brad Barton. “And we’re especially excited about Mjoy’s decision to support Mission Hospital with their charitable donations.”

Cause Direct offers morally conscious merchant processing to businesses that want to help support charities and schools. Businesses can have a portion of all credit and debit card payments they accept automatically donated to the charity or school of their choice. Cause Direct offers processing rates equal to or less than what merchants are already paying — so giving back won’t cost anything extra.

Merchants can benefit from Cause Direct’s processing services by achieving a competitive edge in the marketplace through the increased customer loyalty, tax deductions on charitable contributions, and a positive brand image through community awareness.

“We are excited to share the benefits of Cause Direct with merchants like Mjoy Group” says, Brian Kelly, VP of Cause Direct. “We give merchants the power to choose an organization that reinforces the mission of the company – which not only makes a big impact for the charities and schools they want to support, but allows them to take advantage of the marketing benefits.”
