Deals For Deeds Launches in Washington, DC
WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - April 28, 2010) - There are lots of group-buying websites out there, but only one goes far beyond steep discounts. Deals For Deeds (www.dealsfordeeds.com) launches today, but it's already been generating buzz for its unique way of connecting consumers, businesses, and non-profits via its daily discount deals. The site offers great deals on the best things to eat, see, buy, and do around Washington, DC, and a portion of the proceeds are donated to local community-based non-profits.
"As consumers are becoming increasingly socially conscious, our goal is to create a medium for them to receive fantastic deals on things they like, while also supporting organizations they care about in their local community," says co-founder Josh Hoffman.
So Deals For Deeds presents a new and innovative use of the group-buying model, enhancing it with a socially conscious mission. Say goodbye to buyer's remorse, because Deals For Deeds offers discounts of 50% or more for use at restaurants, spas, shops, museums and bars with an emphasis on local, sustainable, and/or environmentally friendly establishments. What's more, at checkout, buyers will choose one of three featured local non-profits to receive a portion of the proceeds. Each month, Deals For Deeds teams up with three new organizations, increasing awareness and support for a breadth of causes in the DC metro region. It's a win-win-win for local businesses, charitable organizations, and consumers -- and it's only available at Deals For Deeds.
For its first batch of deals, Deals For Deeds has teamed up with non-profits Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C., Food & Friends, and the Washington Animal Rescue League. In the upcoming weeks the Site will feature awesome deals on Freshii (an environmentally conscious fresh food restaurant), Vida Fitness, ACKC Cocoa Bar and Café, Arganica (DC's premier local-source food club), as well as several leading salons, spas, cultural tours, and more.
