Community Perks Santa Monica is a program established by a young couple who wanted to give back to the community in honor of the birth of their baby girl. They created this program to support local businesses and nonprofit organizations.
The couple created a fundraiser card that offers special discounts and perks to exclusive eateries, retail shops and services in Santa Monica. While supporters of participating nonprofits would purchase their card to receive perks, half of the proceeds of the sale of the cards will go to the organization of their choice. The local businesses are also indirectly supporting such nonprofits by providing the card holders with exclusive discounts and special deals.
Gifting a Community Perks Card to a family member, friend, neighbor or co-worker is a great idea to show your appreciation for them. The rewards card provides daily exclusive perks to almost 40 local businesses in the area from now until Aug. 31, 2014. The card costs $20 and 50% of the purchase goes back to one of 14 local nonprofits/schools of your choice.
Forte Animal Rescue has been chosen as one of its beneficiaries, and since Forte dopes not have paid staff, donations raised through this campaign will go straight to the care of animals.
To show someone gratitude while supporting the animals at the same time, visit http://coperks.org and purchase your Community Perks Card under Forte Animal Rescue. You will be helping to save lives while you enjoy your exclusive perks.
