We offer local community groups and charities, without national recognition or star power often associated with high profile organizations, an opportunity to raise much-needed funds without dispensing valuable resources on advertising and events.
We will donate 15% of all our proceeds from our Lifestyle Deal Program towards the local charity groups in your community, and with a local focus and a little effort on your part we intend to contribute over $200,000 to local community charities and groups in 2012.
Visitors to the website can then vote on which charity or community group they deem as their highest priority at that time. At the end of the month, all of the votes are tallied and the groups are shortlisted to ten. Merchants participating in the Lifestyles Deal Program will then choose which charity or community group they would like to support with their promotion.
The program is set up so that community groups and charities can participate by signing up for the program with our online participation form. After completing this five-minute process, the charity or community group will be posted on our website in the Community section.
At the end of the month, we tally up all of the deal sales in which your charity or community group was chosen as the beneficiary. A cheque will be mailed to you in the first 10 business days of the following month.
