How it works: Diners sign up with GoodDining using their credit cards. When they eat at participating locations, a certain percentage of their bill will be given to a charity of their choice. The more they spend, the higher the percentage.
The charity money isn't taken away from the consumers; rather, the restaurants pays GoodDining directly.
Their list is pretty formidable, including KFC nationwide. In Chicago, brunch favorite Yolk is participating, as well as Franks 'n' Dawgs and The Bristol. In New York City, the Heartland restaurants and Le Cirque are listed. Check out more restaurants here.
