Using Coupons to Drive Humanitarianism
Anyone that shops online knows that there is a chance that you can find a coupon from the many coupon sites. I a an avid fan of finding a coupon before I even checkout. I will exhaust most coupons sites before I actually click the submit order button. Using so many coupons per year, I never really thought if there could be more than just saving money every time I used a coupon.
As an avid entrepreneur, I always look at things in the possibility of creating a business model. I also have a little philanthropy in my bones. I love helping people with their problems. I strive to make people feel good if at all possible. I mean, that is why I have Debt RoundUp. I want people to learn about their finances and take control of their financial future.
When I came across the newest coupon site Save1.com, I was taken aback. It is no ordinary coupon site. Yes, you can find great online coupons and offers, but there is another layer to it. Save1 provides a meal for a hungry child with every use of a coupon or offer. That means for whenever you use a coupon on their site, they will donate some of their commission in order to have a meal donated to someone hungry in the United States and throughout the world. They do this with the help of their feeding partners, which are all top-notch charitable organizations. This is the ultimate business model with overwhelming hint of humanitarianism.
Save Money, Save Lives (Save1’s simple, yet effective line)
I am truly impressed what Save1 has done with a traditional business model. They don’t just offer coupons to their visitors, but they reach out further and help those in need, now that is financial integrity. If each coupon site out there provided a meal to those in need, we could put a major dent in worldwide hunger. Save1 has already provided over 95,000 meals to those in need. That statistic is impressive. If you are equally impressed, then take some time to read their story.
If you are a coupon user like I am, then check out Save1 the next time you are looking for a coupon. Why not save a little money while feeding a hungry child all in the same process. If we all get involved, then we can change lives.
Would you use this service more since you know they are helping those in need?
Side Note: Just by writing this, Save1 has donated
20 extra meals (Correction: They noticed the article and are now donating 50 meals). Who say’s blogging can’t be rewarding?
