–The Blue Card Visa Affinity Credit Card from CardPartner Funds Emergency Response Systems for Survivors–

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Thousands of Holocaust survivors in the United States live alone, often at or near poverty. Since 1939, many of them have turned to The Blue Card for help. With the launch today of The Blue Card Visa affinity credit card, anyone can help The Blue Card provide personal emergency response systems (PERSYS) for Holocaust survivors living alone.

The Blue Card Visa affinity credit card goes live today at www.cardpartner.com/app/blue-card. The Blue Card organization earns $50 for each activated card. Then once each quarter for the life of the card, the organization earns a share of the monthly charge volume. By using the card for everyday spending, cardholders help The Blue Card purchase PERSYS units for Holocaust survivors. A PERSYS is an electronic device that summons help in an emergency situation.
