It's a time for giving: How one Atlanta company took time to Pay It Forward

A note from Mary Ball, Regional Education and Support Manager:

In an effort to introduce Atlanta-based company Skylight Financial employees to local non-profit organizations, the "Pay It Forward" program was initiated. A group of ten employees commits to creating awareness and build relationships for their assigned charity. Skyline Financial provides the team with $500 and challenge the team to turn that money into a greater donation. The team must be creative with the money and use it for supplies or materials. The team gets 4.5 hours to make a difference in the Atlanta community.

On November 10, "Team Sandals" jumped to action for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation. They made an INCREDIBLE difference that day. The team went out in town and got local companies to donate board games, balls, arts and crafts and so much more for our Camp Oasis campers. They also created awareness for us by posting about CCFA on their blogs and radio show. Last but not least they sold 11 tickets for the Bottoms Up event! What a way to Pay It Forward! On behalf of the CCFA and everyone with Crohn's or colitis, THANK YOU SKYLINE FINANCIAL!

Skyline Financial, a NetSpend Corporation, is one of the leading providers of prepaid debit cards in the United States. For more information about the company you can visit or
