MustardSeed was created to present the cashless, debit-card-embedded millennial masses with an effortless way to become “giving” minded. MustardSeed features a simple “round-up” premise. Each time a purchase is made with a debit or credit card linked to a MustardSeed account, the purchase amount is rounded to the nearest dollar, with the few extra cents donated to the church or charity of one’s choice.
Developed on the Bstow platform, MustardSeed was launched in November of 2016 and has already acquired hundreds of users, with thousands of dollars donated to charities across the nation.
