There are countless deal finding sites out there for almost any niche, but we’re always fond of those that give back to charity or are providers of “deals for good”. DealGooder gives buyers an opportunity to give back while still making an everyday purchase. For every daily deal sold, DealGooder> gives 50% of the proceeds to that day’s featured charity.
Today’s DealGooder deal is $120 for a Helipcoter Tour of Laguna Beach – a 50%+ savings from its original cost of $239. While today’s charity of choice is Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber which is dedicated to the promotion of underwater diving safety and treatment of Southern California diving casualties – which will receive 50% of the purchase value for their cause. DealGooder provides information on the charity of the day along with a spotlight on how that organization is contributing back to society and why we should be aware of the charity.
DealGooder is much more than just a daily deal website. We create a positive platform for local businesses to partner with charitable organizations such as yours.
Each week, DealGooder selects one Orange County nonprofit to partner with exclusively. From the money we earn on the deals, we donate 50% of our profits with our selected nonprofit partner. (Yep, that’s right. We said 50%!) Once the week’s deals are done, we send you a report and a check for your share of the profits.
Currently DealGooder works out of only Orange County, but we hope more ideas like this become available in every location – or what would be more exciting is if the big players in the industry found a way to incorporate charitable contributions through their well established revenue models.
