Generous partners like Slickdeals.net make it possible for Operation Homefront to provide vital aid to the families of military members and Wounded Warriors.- Jim Knotts, President and CEO of Operation Homefront
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 29, 2011
Slickdeals and Operation Homefront are joining forces for “Operation Slickdeal”, the first-ever national extreme couponing charity event. With the help of its community of seasoned shoppers and extreme couponers, Slickdeals will be hosting guides and videos that teach shoppers on modest budgets how to find great savings and make significant donations for charity. Participants will be able to donate food and other essential items to benefit our military servicemen and their families at any Operation Homefront chapter from July 15th through August 7th.
Operation Slickdeal is a charity event that leverages the Slickdeals community of over 7 million monthly visitors and the popularity of "extreme couponing" in order to benefit military families in need. In this event, coupon experts will not only participate, but help create step-by-step guides that introduce novice shoppers to couponing. By learning how to use coupons from the pros, shoppers can turn a few bucks into hundreds of dollars worth of product that they can donate to charity. They can carry these valuable skills forward, saving money for their own families in this distressed economy.
“Slickdeals is the largest deal and bargain hunting site on the web and by partnering with Operation Homefront, we can harness the talents of our community to support a great cause,” said Bryant Quan, Chief Executive Officer of Slickdeals.net. “We know both our extreme couponers and casual dealhunters alike can rise up to the challenge and use their skills and passion to help our brave servicemen and their families.”
"Generous partners like Slickdeals.net make it possible for Operation Homefront to provide vital aid to the families of military members and Wounded Warriors," said Jim Knotts, President and Chief Executive Officer of Operation Homefront. "We thank them for their contribution as it will raise awareness and help improve the lives of these heroes."
Operation Homefront accepts many types of donations, including unopened, non-perishible food items, household goods, toiletries, furniture, or children’s toys. All of these donations go to military servicemen and their families who need an extra helping hand. Participants need to save their receipts and turn them in along with the donated goods to any Operation Homefront chapter from July 15th through August 7th. A support site with instructions, guides and more information has been set up at http://www.slickdeals.net/homefront
Slickdeals has recruited partners such as US Appliance, Acoustic Sound Design, Bowflex, Dell, and DiscountMags.com to help provide over $15,000 in prizes to thank participants who donate the most goods or can show the most savings. These prizes run from T-Shirts for participants who donate at least $100 in goods to a 64" Plasma TV!
