“We all love saving money, yet nothing feels as good as giving back. Here at Pure Citizen you can do both.” - Amy Ludwigson
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 11, 2011
Since launching in November 2010, Pure Citizen has raised thousands of dollars for non-profit organizations through their innovative feature that allows members to give back a portion of their savings to a featured non-profit partner.
“I have been humbled by the generosity of our members,” says founder Amy Ludwigson. "20% of our members use the feature and on average they donate 3% of their savings.”
It has proven a very successful way to raise money for their non-profit partners including: Fair Trade USA, FINCA, Earth Pledge, PAWS, and PETA. On each item members have the option to reduce the amount of their savings by donating a desired percentage to a worthy cause. Members still save considerable amounts of money, sometimes up to 90%, even when they give back.
Yet, being able to give back through donations is only part of the story. 100% of their company is committed to social and environmental responsibility from the companies they feature to the products they sell, all of which must meet certain ethical criteria.
