In today’s CardFlash News Que: MASTERCARD (Legends) and WESTERN UNION (Chain of Betters).
MASTERCARD – MasterCard launched Thailand’s first-ever MasterCard Legends Academy with Sir Nick Faldo, a 6-time Major champion, 9-time PGA TOUR winner, and 30-time European Tour winner. The Legends Academy gives MasterCard cardholders an exclusive opportunity to enjoy a Priceless experience – an entire day of golf with a golfing legend.
WESTERN UNION – Western Union started a campaign to kick start a chain of good deeds by pledging to help fund projects that aim to make lasting favorable change for individuals and communities. In India, Western Union’s “Chain of Betters” grant paid for a boat that will allow a village’s school-aged children safe access to a school. The Western Union® Chain of Betters competition* will award US$1,000 (or local currency equivalent) for winning selfless “betters.” During the first phase, residents from 20 countries will be invited to nominate betters, but with one important provision: the nominator will be entrusted to making the idea happen.
