COVID-19 is having a huge impact on local businesses, and so Why Leave Town are looking at several ways to assist during this time.
Isolation restrictions in particular have posed a huge barrier to using Why Leave Town Gift Cards. Due to the 'lock down' feature of the cards that keeps all money local, the cards cannot be used online.
In order to get around this, we have allowed offline payments to be made using the cards. To use this service, card holders will need to contact the WLT participating business where they would like to make the purchase to see if that business is willing to accept payment this way.
The BUSINESS will then need to click on the OFFLINE PAYMENTS box below in order to complete the transaction.
Many communities across Australia are suffering right now due to drought, bush fires, and other situations. By clicking on the donation image you can purchase a gift card to help someone in need. These will be distributed by local organisations (i.e. council, Lions, Rotary, etc) within the town you select that currently have the Why Leave Town Gift Card Network.
Donating via Why Leave Town Gift Cards, means that this money is then spent in local stores who are also suffering during this time.
