Since 2005, Mega Bank’s “Astro Boy” credit cards have received a tremendous response from the public. One of the features of these credit cards is that Mega Bank will make a donation to a charitable cause whenever the cardholder uses the card. Each time a transaction is completed using an “Astro Boy” credit card, 0.15% of the transaction amount is transferred to a child welfare charity fund.
The funds accumulated over the last three years will be used to support the “Astro Boy Dreams Campaign”. The campaign was launched in August 2008 by Mega Bank and MAKE-A-WISH Foundation of Taiwan to help children with severe illness to realize their dreams. The campaign hopes to give these children the strength and courage they need to fight their illness and at the same time make the public aware of the importance of one’s will to live in beating illness.
