MOD Pizza, both in Yakima and beyond, was doing a Spreading MODness event where they'd donate $1 of ever MOD-sized pizza sold to the local charity of that area's choice. They raised $241,649 to local charities!

Our Yakima branch's charity of choice was Children's Village so they get a piece of that. Not too shabby!

This is also the first time MOD Pizza went international with donations from partners in Leeds, Brighton and Newcastle in the U.K.

The idea behind Spreading MODness was to start a rippling effect of doing the right thing. They donate a dollar and, in turn, the idea to empower the local 'MOD Squad' to give that rewarding emotional rush.

This is a fun event, easy to pull off and creates a lot of help for local charities in several cities. Thank you, MOD Pizza, for doing this!
