Changing the world by changing the way we shop.
We have started a journey driven by our passion to help the most desperate people in the world. We have traveled the world and seen horrible things and, frankly, we’ve been devastated by what we’ve seen and experienced. Our entire family has been changed to a point where we can’t go back to what was considered “normal.” The things that are truly important are now different.
Did you know that every day 17,000 children die from the effects of malnutrition? Five children have died since you opened this webpage. Tonight, while you are sleeping, 5,000 more children will die from the effects of malnutrition. We can’t allow this to continue!
Save1 invites you to make a difference.
We believe that when working together, we can make a difference! We can help change these statistics! We can save lives! Our slogan is “Save money. Save lives!” because when you redeem our coupons or use our special offers you save money and you help save the lives of starving children around the globe.
We offer coupons and special deals from thousands of the top online stores in America, with more being added every day. When you buy something from any of these stores using one of our coupons or special offers, your purchase will provide a meal to a hungry child. The more you use Save1 to save money, the more children you will feed.
What kind of changes are we talking about?
First and foremost, we’re talking about change that improves and, in some cases, saves lives. Did you know that it costs 30-50 cents to provide a meal for a hungry child, or that $30 a month can bring a child back from the brink of starvation in a third-world country? When administered in time, a life-saving formula made from peanut butter increases survival rates dramatically—as high as 95 percent.
When it comes to changing how we shop, did you know that there’s a coupon or special deal for just about everything you purchase? Whether you are looking to buy a pair of shoes or a new TV, Save1 has a coupon that can save you money. All you need to do is type in the name of any store in our search bar and you will see that store’s current coupons. Simply select the most relevant coupon and click “Use this Offer.” You will then see the store’s website and a small pop-up window with instructions. When you complete your transaction, you will have saved money and provided one meal for a child in need.
How can we feed children with coupons?
When you use a coupon or deal from Save1, we receive a small commission from the store where you make your purchase. We then give away a portion of the commission we earn to help hungry children.
The organizations we have selected are among the most credible and respected charities in the world, specializing in feeding hungry and malnourished children. We invite you to learn about Our Feeding Partners and Selection Criteria.
You save money.
Not only will they be fed nutritious meals, but they will have hope for a future worth living.
Our partner organizations will be able to fulfill their mission of saving children's lives.
We hope to make a profit so we can continue spreading the word and helping those in need.
Who’s behind the scenes?
It’s very important to us that you are 100% confident in knowing that when you use Save1, you are helping save lives. You can read about our commitment to Financial Integrity, get your questions answered with our Child Feeding FAQ, and review the credible organizations we support — Our Feeding Partners.
Since we believe in developing strong relationships with our supporters, we thought it might help you to know a little bit about us, too.
We are a family who believes it’s possible to make a difference in the lives of children who are hungry and need our help. This is our passion! We want to share our passion with others in ways that allow people around the world to join our family in providing healthy food to hungry children.
Meet Todd and Joy Smith
Married 27 years, Joy and Todd Smith are high-school sweethearts who’ve dedicated their lives to helping others. Along with their four children, the Smiths have played a vital role in feeding the homeless in their own community.
Joy’s calling has taken her to remote villages and developing countries around the world to care for women, orphans, and needy children.
Todd was first introduced to the needs of malnourished children around the world during his high-school years when he was working in the mailroom at Compassion International. Today he fills the role of Save1’s board chairman and co-founder.
As a successful entrepreneur of 31 years, Todd recently shared his lessons for work and life in Little Things Matter: 100 Ways to Improve Your Life Today (Success Books, 2010).
Todd loves beating his grown sons in everything from wrestling to catching the biggest fish. He brags that when he is 80, he will still be beating them. He told his kids years ago, if he dies first they wouldn’t get any inheritance, because their mom will spend it all helping women and children.
Meet Danielle and Josh Cearbaugh
The Smith’s oldest daughter, Danielle, met her husband Josh while serving the poorest of poor in Mozambique. Josh is a co-founder of Save1 and brings a wealth of internet marketing and development experience to the team. Josh and Danielle have two energetic boys, Titus and Josiah.
Josh comes alive when doing missionary work, enjoys good sushi, and is giddy when he catches a fish bigger than Todd’s. He's the guy who constantly wonders why someone else didn’t create Save1 years ago.
Meet Gerrid and Jessica Smith
As the eldest son of Todd and Joy, Gerrid is a co-founder of Save1 along with Josh and Todd. However, this is not Gerrid’s first effort to help those in need. In 2009, he and Jessica started the Moju Project—an online merchandise business designed to help wipe out social injustices like hunger, malnutrition, and human trafficking. Gerrid built his career as an internet marketing specialist helping companies connect with their target market on the web.
In 2011, Jessica and Gerrid adopted their first child, Elijah, from Ethiopia. On September 1, 2012, they welcomed their second child, Samuel Asher Moshe. Moshe is his African middle name, so he and Elijah would share African names.
