We know that families, charities and small businesses are really struggling to get by in this economy, so we developed a formula that would serve all three populations.

A new website is emerging from the multitudes of Deal-a-Day sites like Groupon and LivingSocial. While their formula for selling vouchers for daily deals looks familiar, Kidsideals.com has a little something more – heart.

“We know that families, charities and small businesses are really struggling to get by in this economy, so we developed a formula that would serve all three populations,” explains Naomi Richman, president of Kidsideals.com. “That is the ideal of Kidsideals.”

Initially launched in Los Angeles, Kidsideals.com offers daily deals on goods, services, events, and activities for kids and families. “We’re working with local vendors to provide deals that busy parents want for their kids and themselves. Things like music and art lessons for the kids or couples massages for mom and dad”, says Richman, further distinguishing Kidsideals from the other Deal-a-Day sites that cater to a younger, single population.

Kidsideals’ first deal was offered by the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association. The GLAZA was excited to work with Kidsideals because of their philanthropic efforts and is poised to be Kidsideals’ Featured Charity Partner in January 2011.

Kidsideals.com features one local children’s charity each month on the Homepage of the website and many others within the site. Richman hopes that the exposure, donations and aid charities receive from Kidsideals.com will make a significant difference for the children and families served by the charities. The site also features links and content for local children’s charities in need of material donations and those with volunteer opportunities.

Kidsideals gives back to the community by matching all donations made by site subscribers to Kidsideals’ Featured Charity Partners that include One Small Voice Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles, the John Tracy Clinic, GLAZA, the Get A Life Foundation, Canines for Kids, the reDiscover Center, LA Diaper Drive and Baby2Baby, among others. “This economy has been so rough on charities, especially the smaller organizations who are really trying to make a difference for needy kids. We think we can help,” says Richman.
