Father’s Day is right around the corner and a great opportunity to do a story on how individuals can honor their fathers, save money on gifts, and simultaneously support the nonprofit organization they care about!
When your readers buy their Father’s Day gifts, they can (without spending anything extra) give money to the nonprofit of their choice! GoodShop.com is an online mall which has partnered with more than 1,500 stores including Brooks Brothers, Expedia, Chocolate.com, Gourmet Gift Baskets, and The Sharper Image among others. The site lists hundreds of great coupons and deals – ranging from free shipping, percentages off, buy-one-get-one deals, and money back on future orders – and gives a percentage of every purchase back to the charity designated by its users!
Here’s how it works:
1) Go to http://www.goodshop.com/
2) Designate your favorite cause (such as your school, your church/temple, the American Red Cross, the ASPCA, or the Nature Conservancy among 91,000+ others)
3) Enter the store where you want to shop and get a list of coupons
4) Shop as you normally would and a percentage of what you spend goes back to your (or your dad’s) favorite cause!
