The Santa Fe New Mexican.
WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) A new app called “MyChange” is allowing users to use their extra pocket change to fund their favorite cause or candidate. Using an online payment application such as Mint.com, a donor can make a purchase for gas or groceries, and then he/she will have the opportunity to round up the amount to the next dollar. That additional money then goes to a preferred political candidate or organization. Founded in part by Santa Fe native Sandra Wechsler, this is creative women entrepreneurship that inspires social good!!!!!!
The Santa Fe New Mexican
The founders of MyChange hope that the fundraising application itself will help them better connect with their passion for progressive politics.
Co-founder Sandra Wechsler was raised in a political Santa Fe family. She received her bachelor’s in social thought and political economy from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and her master’s in public health from The University of New Mexico.
She has been involved in the campaigns for former Mayor David Coss and helped start the Progressive Santa Fe PAC, which spent money to support the efforts of Mayor Javier Gonzales and others.
