    Banks make $90 billion a year from processing our debit and credit card purchases. What if you could turn your everyday purchases into money for the Sea Hawkers to do good in the community?

    This means raising real money without more coming out of your pocket. That’s why the Sea Hawkers partnered with GroundSwell.

    How It Works.

    Whenever you use a any kind of payment card the merchant pays a fee that goes to the financial institutions that make that payment happen. These Merchant Fees merchants fund a lot. We believe they can fund great organizations doing great work. GroundSwell has arranged things so that a portion of every one of your purchases goes directly to Sea Hawkers to help them continue supporting the community and causes that give back huge value.

    Get a GroundSwell Prepaid Visa Debit. It’s a Visa debit card that you can use anywhere for your everyday purchases.

    Set an automatic load from your existing bank to your new GroundSwell Prepaid Visa Debit when you sign up – you’re ready to go!

    Every time you purchase something a portion of that purchase goes directly to the Sea Hawkers at no extra cost to you.

    The Sea Hawkers Booster Club is a powerful force in the community. They help bring not only the passion of the fans but also the commitment to do good in the neighborhoods they live.

    GroundSwell is proud to partner with them and become a useful tool in helping support the great causes and work they do daily.

    Imagine through your everyday purchases, your Sea Hawkers’ GroundSwell card will help to support your fellow 12s who are in need during this time of the COVID pandemic, and also, benefiting military, Seahawks Legends charities and youth programs in the future. This is as simple as setting up autopays for a couple monthly bills, online purchases, restaurants and more.

    It really adds up, if we all join in together. That’s a groundswell!
