When you hit 2,000 points, OpenTable will give you a $20 credit toward dining out. If you're not quite there yet, or even if you are, this holiday season OpenTable is
allowing you to donate those points
to the No Kid Hungry campaign instead of using them for yourself.
OpenTable says that just 100 OpenTable points is enough to provide a child in need with five healthy meals. So, rather than getting $20 off that night out you could use your 2,000 points instead to provide 100 meals for a child in need. Seems like a no-brainer, especially if you're below that 2,000-point threshold and don't anticipate getting there anytime soon (or ever).
That will take you to a Google Doc to fill out with info about your account and how many points you'd like to donate to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign. OpenTable is also matching donations up to 100,000 so you might actually be providing 200 meals with that 2,000-point donation.
