Deals for Deeds, launching Wednesday!

Have you heard of Deals for Deeds? It’s a brand new group buying website, similar to Groupon, that supports community non-profits. They offer one huge daily deal and donate a large portion (at least 5%) of every deal to one of three local non-profits that rotate on a regular basis.

The site will officially launch Wednesday April 28th. Come to their launch party tomorrow, Tuesday April 27th at ACKC (at 14th and Q) from 6-8pm. It promises to be a good time, and free drinks and food will be provided. Celebrate a great new business venture and sign up for their daily emails!

AmaniDC, a nonprofit boutique, is having its grand opening today and tomorrow in Mt. Pleasant. Amani is a peace-building organization that helps East African women fleeing from conflict and poverty. Their boutique sells handbags, jewelry, home goods, and children’s items made by the women. The organization is self-sustainable, operating on the profits made by selling the items.

Their DC store is opening at 3166 Mt. Pleasant Street and will celebrate their grand opening today from 2-7 pm and tomorrow from 11 am-4 pm. The events will feature raffles, free gifts with $25 purchase, African chai, and refreshments. I urge you to make it over to the grand opening, what a wonderful way to support a great cause.
