Deals for Deeds is now up and running following a launch party last night at ACKC Cocoa Bar–the first deal is already posted this morning. The group buying website is similar to LivingSocial and Groupon, but supports community nonprofits in the process.
Deals for Deeds will offer “one huge daily deal on the best things to do, see or eat around the city… and a portion (at least 5%) of every deal is donated to one of three local non-profits that rotate on a regular basis.”
On the business side, they have already partnered with ACKC, Arganica Farm Club, Tango Mercurio and Carafe Wine Makers. On the nonprofit side, Deals for Deeds has lined up Washington Animal Rescue League, Food & Friends, and Habitat for Humanity of DC.
