YIPDeals Offers Daily Deals On Local Goods While Supporting Local Charities

YIPDealsNational and neighborhood daily deals site, YIPDeals, has made a charitable presence in many cities across the United States, and now it is making its mark in Colorado, California and Oregon. The sites donation branch, called YipGives works with a variety of community staples  to provide fundraising and donation opportunities that are hyper-local.

“YIPDeals does an excellent job of working with schools, churches, non‐profit organizations and local chambers of commerce” said Eric Wagner of Progressive Mobile Marketing, an independent marketing consultant for YIP, in a recent press release.

YipDeals is a unique local deal service that offers deep discounts on local Goods and Services while supporting local Schools and Charities. YipDeals donates 12% of each deal purchased to the organization of the buyer’s choice. With its home base in Northern VA, YipDeals has helped local Schools and Charities raise thousands of dollars easily by tapping into the popular group discount buying market.

“For many it is a win/win situation. You get some great deals on ordinary products and your personal favorite charity gets a nice sum of money,” Wagner explained, according to the press release.

The daily deals site, which has over 22,000 local websites where people and businesses meet to share deals, also offers special fundraising opportunities for schools, chambers of commerce and churches.

“Unlike many fundraisers that only last a short time, YIPDeals Fundraisers can go year‐round and even into the summer. The more parents, students, teachers and administrators shop with YIPDeals, the more money the individual school earns. It is really that simple,” Wagner added, in the press release.

In addition, YIPDeals explained in their press release how through their program they had a chance to raise over $600.00 for a school’s PTA in an extremely short time.

“What helps with the YIPDeals program is that we also work with local merchants and restaurants so you get not only a great deal, but also a chance to help a school and a local business. The benefits are enormous when you look at everything that you get,” Wagner concluded.
