CLEVELAND, March 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mezu, the leading payment app that enables people to use their money with efficiency, ease and total privacy today announced that it's spearheading a national campaign to support the CDC in this time of crisis. Mezu will be foregoing any fees to donate 100% of the funds collected to the CDC Foundation. Mezu will be matching Mezu users' donations dollar for dollar at any amount donated.
Customers can easily join Mezu's donation to support national efforts to help those affected by the Coronavirus pandemic and the research the CDC is doing to prevent the further spread of the virus by dropping their donation into a specially created global CDC Foundation Mezubox inside the Mezu app.
Donations made to the CDC Foundation's COVID-19 response support deploying emergency staffing to U.S. public health agencies, funding medical supplies, increasing lab capacity, providing support to vulnerable communities, and more.
"We believe it is our duty to help the community at large in any way we can during this critical time for humanity," said Yuval Brisker, CEO of Mezu." Like anything that we touch, cash is particularly vulnerable to germ transmission and can be a major contributor to the spread of the virus. Even the simplest exchange of handing over your credit or debit card can contribute to the kind of contact that enables the spread of disease. Alongside our contribution to the CDC, we want to encourage our users to digitally transfer money or use a contactless payment system, to help keep themselves safe, their loved ones and the greater community healthy during this time."
Mezu is a unique holistic payment application that uses a 4 digit transaction code to enable a private person-to-person payment. With Mezu, users do not have to share their names, phone numbers, email addresses or any other personal information to pay or get paid. In addition, the MezuCard, Mezu's digital debit card in partnership with Mastercard, allows for contactless payments helping users to avoid unnecessary contact to avoid the spread of germs and curb the spread of Coronavirus.
