Fundraising group buying website for children launched
Together with the slogan “Group Deals. Group Giving”, Australian website Kid U Not has recently been launched across the country which encourages group buying deals on things kids whilst supporting a worthy cause.
For every Australian who signs up with the website, Kid U Not will donate to one of many charities. But even for the money-conscious parents, Kid U Not will offer between 50% – 90% off the RRP.
Much like group buying market leader Groupon, merchants across Australia will have the opportunity to offer the members significant discounts on child-related products such as clothing, toys, experiences, educational, health, entertainment and even travel.
The co-founder of company Caroline Selka said: “Being a budget conscious mother of two young children myself, I realised there was a clear gap in the market for a group buying website offering discounts specifically focused on children’s and family-related products, services and experiences. Kid U Not will help ease the ongoing financial costs associated with raising and entertaining kids.”
The website all has the Group Giving Program in which they will donate 5% of the revenue made from every purchases to a school or charity of the purchaser’s choice. Selka has continued “through the Kid U Not Group Giving Program, we have combined collective buying power with donations to schools and children’s charities. Whether it’s building a new playground or helping contribute to a wonderful children’s charity group, Kid U Not is proud to be able to give back to local communities.”
