Every now and then Groupon, instead of offering half price offers to things like restaurants or spas, will offer “deals” to support a worthy charity. Today is one of those days.
Starting Monday, May 23 2011, Groupon will be offering $35 worth of merchandise from the Stand Up to Cancer online store for only $15. You’ve probably seen the Stand Up To Cancer logo on a celebrity, at a ballgame, or on TV. It’s an organization whose mission is to accelerate groundbreaking research and work with the leading minds in medicine and science to fight all forms of cancer, provide new therapies to patients, and save lives.
The merchandise you can buy at the online store ranges from T-Shirts to orange wristbands to beautiful jewelry to ties for men and tanktops for women. Not only will your cost be 42% less than usual thanks to Groupon covering the difference, you’ll know that all of your money will be going to a very important cause, plus you’ll have outfits or merchandise that are both very stylish, and will also spread the word about this charity and its important cause.
