Donation Bins for our Backpacks to the Border project


Your financial contribution helps us keep doing the important work of amplifying kindness. Because we have no staff, we have an extremely low monthly overhead. Nearly 100% of your donation is used to purchase supplies for our many events.


Positive Charge! PDX is an Oregon-based tax-exempt organization as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. That means your contribution is tax deductible.

$100 - Provides 36 photo boxes to use to make Welcome Boxes for foster care children

$50 - Buys fabric for us to make 2 therapeutic lap pads for survivors of sex trafficking


$25 - Allows us to purchase art supplies to make encouragement cards for hospitalized children struggling with cancer

$10 - Pays for a box of granola bars to add to sack lunches for people living homeless

FM Community Rewards.webp

Fred Meyer Community Rewards makes giving easy by donating to Positive Charge! PDX based on the shopping you do every day. Once you link your Fred Meyer Community Rewards Plus Card to Positive Charge! PDX, all you have to do is shop at Fred Meyer and swipe your Plus Card or input your phone number.

Note, "double dipping" and getting your own personal Fred Meyer Rewards "money back" doesn't work. You have to choose between having your personal account and your community rewards account. In other words, who gets the extra change? You or PC!PDX?   :)

Click the button below for instructions to link your Plus Card to Positive Charge! PDX...and thank you!
