LivingSocial Celebrates the Season of Giving

LivingSocials' 12 Days of Giving event, allows users to shop for great deals in their communities and at the same time give back by taking a percentage of what you spend and support local schools in your community and around the world.

The holidays are just around the corner and the LivingSocial, a social shopping website that works with local communities to bring you great discounts on getaways, spa treatments and various other discounts with community businesses, have brought back the 2nd annual 12 Days Of Giving to help support charities worldwide.

No matter where you are you can participate in this event that lasts until the 24th of December (Christmas Eve). The deals and coupons found on LivingSocial stay the same during this event. However, a percentage will go to support charitable organizations such as Global Giving and DonorsChoose.org. DonorsChoose.org is an organization that gathers schools supplies, musical supplies and intruments and other equipment to schools in need. So if you purchase a deal in your local community a percentage of your purchase goes back to your community. While DonorsChoose.org is primarily communities within the USA, Global Giving provides to local communities around the world and it allows users to decide how much they want to give and to which cause.

In a statement by co-founder of LivingSocial.com and CEO Tim O’ Shaughnessy:

“We’re excited to partner with DonorsChoose.org for 12 Days of Giving. Just like our mission is to help connect exciting local merchants with new and loyal customers, DonorsChoose.org links donors with classroom projects in local communities,”

“So, if you’re in Atlanta, proceeds from your purchase of a LivingSocial Deal go towards funding a project in a local Atlanta classroom. This is a fantastic way for us to share some holiday cheer while giving back and supporting local grassroots charity efforts.”

LivingSocial.com is one of the largest competitors for other social shopping websites such as Groupon and Daily Deals and brings in over 10 million subscribers, which is sure to take the 12 Days Of Giving event to new heights.
