Giving Machines


Donating to charity can be as easy as buying a candy bar.

Imagine swiping your credit card at a vending machine—but instead of buying a candy bar for yourself, you’re buying a refurbished computer for a family at Operation Breakthrough, or paying for a child to have swimming lessons, or providing produce in the food desert of Kansas City.  With the #LightTheWorld Giving Machines, that’s exactly what happens. 

Operation Breakthrough is one of six nonprofits featured in the Kansas City Giving Machines.  The Giving Machines will be set up in Crown Center November 30th through January 2nd.  Look for the big red bank of three Giving Machines below the Ice Terrace, near the entrance to Sea Life Aquarium and Legoland.

Credit and debit cards as well as mobile wallet options, such as Apple Pay and Android pay, are the only methods of payment accepted at the Giving Machines.

100% of every donation at the Giving Machine goes directly to charity of choice. Credit card fees are covered by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Operation Breakthrough is not affiliated with any religious organization.
