GrabJab, Niagara’s hottest daily deal site, has recently launched a new program seeing that $1 of every purchase made goes to a charity of the consumer’s choice. The best part? This program is not costing customers any extra money; the donation comes directly from GrabJab’s profits.

There are currently five charities to choose from to direct your donation: Project Share, Hannah House, the United Ways of Greater Fort Erie and Niagara Falls and Heartland Forest Nature Experience, with more charities being added regularly.

Project Share is a non-profit organization that provides emergency food and support to individuals in the Niagara Region that live on or below the poverty line. These services help people help themselves and their families when times of crisis arise.

Hannah House Maternity Home is located in the Niagara Region and provides transitional housing to pregnant and parenting young women under the age of 21. They have several programs available including providing help with baby items, counseling, help with meal planning and budgeting, and assistance with medical care.

The United Way of Greater Fort Erie and the United Way of Niagara Falls collect donations and disperse them to charities located in their respective communities. Some of the funded agencies include the Adult Literary Council, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Niagara Falls and South Niagara, Meals on Wheels, and Niagara Region Sexual Assault Centre.

Heartland Forest Nature Experience is a registered charitable organization that provides a great learning experience in a beautiful Carolinian Forest setting, that has 2.5km of trails, a butterfly garden, animal carvings, mini putt and a picnic area. All of the activities at Heartland Forest are provided to visitors free of charge. The entire Heartland area was designed with accessibility in mind, so those in wheelchairs and scooters can also enjoy the park.

If there is a charity that is near and dear to your heart that you would like to see added to this list, contact the team at GrabJab to get the process started.

GrabJab is currently the only daily deal site that gives back to the community in this way; and there is the potential to make a real difference for these charities, especially during the busy summer months, when vouchers are flying off the screen (so to speak).

Shopping on GrabJab is the perfect way to not only get great deals, but to treat yourself, while also helping others.
