MasterCard recently launched its Dine and Be Generous Campaign, which supports Stand Up to Cancer.

When a cardholder uses his or her MasterCard to buy a meal for $10 or more, MasterCard will donate 1 cent to the cause. The campaign launched July 10 and will continue through September 28.

On August 8, the company is hosting National Dine Out Day, and will up the ante to 2 cents when $10 is spent on a meal on the card. 

Also on National Dine Out Day, celebrity chefs Marcus Samuelsson and Rocco DiSpirito will be using the MasterCard twitter handle (@MasterCard) to answer questions and discuss their background and experiences. The chefs will be answering questions from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
