For the 8th year in a row, the team at Netspend decided to forgo the traditional office holiday party and give back to the local community. The holiday season at this Austin-based company is not about long lunches, over-the-top celebrations or loud music—it’s about the amazing reward, and personal satisfaction, of helping your neighbor and the community. This day of giving they call “Netspend Community Connect” was held yesterday, Thursday, November 15th.

Founded in 1999, Netspend offers prepaid debit cards and innovative payment solutions to consumers who have historically been “underbanked” or choose to be self-banked to deal with their financial needs.  This unique holiday tradition gives employees a chance step away from their daily routines and take a “walk in the shoes” of Netspend customers. Community Connect is designed to highlight the everyday hurdles that so many people face—especially in an expensive city like Austin.

On Thursday, about 650 participants, broken into 72 teams, took to the streets of Austin and gave away more than $30,000. A little kindness goes a long way, and this year’s participants paid it forward to unsuspecting Austinites by paying for their groceries, gas, bills and much more.

On top of this Community Connect event, Netspend and its partners, have also raised $400,000 to fund the Netspend Scholarship Foundation’s awards for 2019 which will include 120+ deserving recipients from across the US.

“Community Connect is a proud Netspend tradition, and every year around the holidays, we’re humbled to continue the initiative alongside our partners, and to give back to our beloved city of Austin,” said Netspend President Kelley Knutson. “If other organizations embrace this concept, and participate in days of giving back to their communities (over and above their normal charity giving), we’ve helped evolve our mission to a greater collective good.  This event is a personally moving, and motivating, experience and we are thrilled to have raised the most money to date for our Community Connect day, and we look forward to continuing our deep-rooted tradition for years to come.”


It is no secret that Austin is a dog loving town. Edible Austin has taken it to the next level and launched the first Annual Dog Restaurant Week! That means today through Sunday you and your pup can head a select group of restaurants and fido can enjoy his own dog friendly meal. The fido-friendly menu will include options like a fall feast with turkey and garden vegetables, beef sliders, pumpkin truffles and a canine cocktail made of frozen bone broth.

While on the patio with your pup, you can enjoy a Tito’s Handmade Vodka cocktail for humans, and a dollar from each drink will benefit pet-related nonprofits. All of this is made possible by Vodka for Dog People, a program of Tito’s Handmade Vodka, which works to better the lives of pets and their families, both locally and globally.

Alright everyone, we officially have plans the day after Thanksgiving and we aren’t shopping—we’re drinking. Christmas pop-up bar known as Miracle, is coming our way this holiday season and bringing themed cocktails that will make everything merry and bright:

The answer is no, no you cannot.

This year also features new, limited availability “Dasher Passes.” Options include a ’Twas the Night Pass starting at $25, which is valid for a specified date, as well as a ’Tis the Season Pass for $100, good for the entirety of the pop-up.
