Why is Save1 focused on child hunger?
While there are many worthy causes, child hunger is one that has reached epidemic proportions. Sadly, six million children die from malnutrition every year. That number amounts to:
17,000 children every day
700 every hour
12 every minute
or 1 every 5 seconds
It is a devastating problem, and one that deserves our immediate attention. That's why Save1 decided to give meals in association with our deals. By working with you, we get to make an impact on this issue in a major way.
If the commission Save1 earns is less than the cost of providing a meal, will you still feed a child?
Yes. If the commission is less than the cost to feed a child, Save1 will make up the deficit and buy a meal for a hungry child.
How do you feed the children?
We make monthly donations to Feeding Partners who deliver nutritious meals to children in need.
How do you select your Feeding Partners?
Save1 works hard to ensure that the Feeding Partners we select are credible, charitable organizations built on a foundation of integrity. They must also have a history of efficiently delivering meals to hungry and malnourished children around the globe. As part of this process, we ask each Feeding Partner applicant to provide us with specific information and to meet certain guidelines. The information is then reviewed and verified by our Director of Charitable Giving and the founders of Save1, who must approve each application.
Our goal is to be as transparent as possible in our operations. If you would like to learn more about the selection process, please review our Feeding Partner Selection Criteria.
Where are the children located?
In the United States and throughout the world. We look to contribute to the areas in greatest need.
How can I be sure that you are actually feeding children from redeemed coupons?
Each month Save1 will make a monetary donation to one or more of our Feeding Partners, who in turn will provide us with an acknowledgment letter confirming the number of meals purchased with our donation. We select only those organizations where we have full confidence in their ability to use our donations to fulfill their child-feeding commitments.
Please be sure to check our website’s Meals Counter (in the upper right-hand corner of every page) to track how many meals are being provided.
What percentage of the money donated to the Feeding Partners actually goes to feeding a child?
One of our requirements specifies that Feeding Partners spend no more than 20 percent of their charitable donations on administrative and fundraising expenses. For more information, see the Feeding Partner Selection Criteria.
Do you give an equal amount to each one of your Feeding Partners?
No. The decision as to how many meals to provide through each Feeding Partner is made on a monthly basis and is largely determined by where the need is the greatest.
How frequently do you donate to your Feeding Partners?
Initially we will be paying monthly, but our goal is to pay weekly.
If a store does not have any coupons or special offers or if their offers don’t work for what I am purchasing, can I make a purchase at that store that results in a child being fed?
Yes! Anytime you click a store’s link from any of the 5000+ stores listed on Save1, we will provide a meal to a starving child. There is a link to each store at the top of each store’s page on Save1. Click this or any link on the page. When you do, a new window will open with the store’s website. Simply proceed to make your purchase and we will feed a child.
Are there other ways that I can help Save1 feed hungry children?
Yes! We have a special Limited Time Only offer.
Rather than spending money on traditional and often ineffective marketing, Save1 would rather use that money to feed hungry children. You can become a part of our marketing program.
