The Bank of America (BofA) announced that it is partnering with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) on a credit-card program, and the response from farmers and ranchers has drawn the attention of the banking giant’s management team. BofA’s MyExpression program is offering an HSUS checking account and associated Visa check card, as well as an HSUS Visa credit card. Both of these products financially support HSUS. According to the BofA Web site, the bank will donate 25 cents to the animal-rights organization for every $100 in purchases made with the HSUS WorldPoints Platinum Plus Visa credit card.
Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of HSUS, is quoted as saying, “This is a great way to support the work of The Humane Society of the United States. When you open your account, and each time you make an eligible purchase with your Bank of America VISA check card, you'll support our mission to combat animal cruelty and care for animals in need.”
