NYU student project lets you donate money remaining on your NYC subway card to charity.

Every year, millions of dollars worth of value on MTA MetroCards are lost or discarded. However, a student project at NYU called MetroChange takes this value and puts it to good use. The concept is simple: swipe your MetroCard at a MetroChange kiosk and the value on the card is transferred to a central fund. This fund is then donated to a charity once per month while the physical card is taken for recycling. As a daily subway rider and proponent of social good, I am totally in favor of this. Well done, guys!
