SheerID Hosts Charity Drive Benefiting the Military, Teachers, and Students at INTIX 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Eugene, OR – January 28, 2013 – SheerID, a point-of-sale verification provider for retailers and consumers, will attend the 34th Annual INTIX Conference & Exhibition. The company will participate in a charity partnership with three nonprofit organizations to benefit US military, K-12 teachers, and college students.
While at INTIX, attendees will select their favorite charity by dropping their business card into one of three buckets at SheerID’s booth, each representing a vote for an organization that is working to support a special interest group – The National Military Family Association, DonorsChoose.org, and Beyond12. SheerID will donate five dollars per business card received in each bucket, and each organization will receive a minimum donation of $500.
SheerID’s point-of-sale verification technology confirms whether a consumer is a member of a special interest group, such as the military, teachers or students. This lets the enterprise automatically grant a discount upon verification. In the ticketing industry, SheerID’s service acts as a bridge between a venue’s shopping cart and any secure database.
