Spare Change App Feeds NYers

Yikes, I haven’t posted since half-past August! I’ve been busy over at my other show writing about, among other topics, threats to our personal data posed by careless CEO and other C-level types.  Here’s some good new for people at the other end of the Pareto income curve.  NYC-based Spare has an app that allows you to round up your restaurant bill.

With the round-up change—up to $.99—going to Food Bank For New York City & City Harvest.

Neat idea. You can download the IOS app here.

If anyone at  Goldman Sachs is listening, how about this for a follow up idea: allow investors and customers to round down their quarterly dividend checks to the nearest hundred dollars and send the cash to Food Bank!
