Auburn Hills MI, September 2008 — Donor Dialogue teams with Springbok to offer blood centers a unique opportunity to reward loyal donors with branded prepaid cards.
"Donor Dialogue is excited to launch such an innovative and industry-transcending rewards tool," noted Alejandro Vargas, CEO of Donor Dialogue. "Through our exclusive partnership with Springbok, donors receive a greatly improved mechanism to utilize their rewards points and blood centers earn a unique, powerful branding opportunity. It is a watershed concept for our industry and the type of partnership where everyone wins."
For donors, the donor rewards program rewards donation loyalty and provides a prepaid card that can be used anywhere MasterCard® debit cards are accepted. Donors will no longer be restricted to limited gifts through narrow rewards catalogues and point systems. For blood centers, the partnership eliminates the cumbersome logistics of managing rewards gifts and closed-loop gift cards. It also offers a powerful branding opportunity that was not previously available to blood centers. Additionally, these prepaid cards are personalized to the individual donor and therefore non transferable and non redeemable for cash. Both elements are of great importance when issuing rewards to blood donors.
"Prepaid cards are a proven conduit to motivate positive behavior and we can think of no better cause than rewarding donors for giving blood," said Michael Ross, senior vice president of sales, Springbok Services. "This is an incredibly powerful and pioneering program that is forging inroads for a new level of loyalty programs among non-profit organizations.
