GlobalCoupon.com Continues to Pioneer Worldwide Socially Responsible Business Model

Global Coupon Inc., today announced the company has selected British Columbia Children’s Hospital Foundation (BCCHF) as its first Charity of Choice for its GlobalCoupon.com platform. In line with its global launch sequence, GlobalCoupon.com will provide BCCHF a percentage of every transaction generated through its platform in addition to offering the organization additional fundraising opportunities within its business membership.

As part of its mission, a percentage of every transaction fee generated from the site will be donated by GlobalCoupon.com to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation in Vancouver, Canada. Businesses that register with the platform will also have the option to allocate a portion of their annual business spend on the GlobalCoupon.com platform to many other diverse charitable organizations of choice as well. Once selected, businesses do not contribute donations from their own revenue or sales. But rather, GlobalCoupon.com steps up to the plate and donates the amount from a portion of the fees it would normally collect from the business. This way, if businesses select BC Children’s Hospital as their Charity of Choice, Global Coupon will pay twice – first its own corporate donation, and second, the donation appointed on behalf of businesses.
