SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwire - Oct 2, 2012) - Today, coupon site Save1 launched to provide coupons and deals from thousands of the top online retailers. But unlike any other coupon site, Save1 will donate a meal to a child in need for each special offer redeemed. While nearly 17,000 children a day die of starvation and malnutrition, Save1 aims to combat child hunger around the world one coupon at a time.
"Our passion for helping save the lives of children who are dying from hunger and malnutrition around the world is what inspired us to start Save1," said Gerrid Smith, co-founder of Save1. "We wanted to find a way to bring our passion to those also looking to make a difference. With Save1, we not only offer money saving solutions on the items consumers buy every day, but also make a difference in the fight against child hunger."
Joining with over 5,000 of the top online retailers at launch, Save1 provides shoppers with the best deals on the web. If a retailer is not providing special offers at the present time, users can click the store's link from Save1 and it will still feed a child. Save1 provides three additional quick and easy ways to a feed a child now:
1. Share the site with friends on Facebook
2. Like the Save1 Facebook page
3. Sign up for the Save1 newsletter
The company makes a small commission for every coupon or deal redeemed through the site, which in turn is applied to the cost of providing one meal. It makes monthly donations to its non-profit partners that have a history of efficiently delivering nutritious meals to hungry and malnourished children around the world and who meet its feeding partner selection criteria. Save1's current partners include Action Against Hunger, Feeding America, Feed My Starving Children and Project Peanut Butter.
