CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (May 17, 2023) – A new unique way to support families facing the effects of childhood cancer, Walmart’s Spark Good online and in-app program provides customers with an easy way to give to the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer. Anyone who shops at Walmart can participate— visit to sign in and sign up. Choose the Austin Hatcher Foundation as your charity of choice, and Walmart will round up your purchase to the nearest dollar at checkout, and donate your change to AHF.

Anyone who uses or the Walmart app (which can be used to pay in store or for Walmart delivery/pick-up) can round up their purchases to support the Austin Hatcher Foundation's mission to erase the effects of pediatric cancer. Every cent counts, and this new partnership with Walmart Spark Good will make it easy for customers to make a difference.

"We are excited to be part of Walmart Spark Good's Round Up program," said Austin Hatcher Foundation Marketing Coordinator Shayna Webb. "It’s such a simple and easy way to give back, and though it seems small, over time and with enough momentum, we know this can make a big impact in raising funds and awareness for AHF providing essential services to families affected by pediatric cancer."
