Can Online Deals Save The World? Susan G. Komen and Hereford House Partner Up to Fight Breast Cancer

Many Kansas City entrepreneurs may not have known that Saturday was Make a Difference Day—an opportunity that arises on the fourth Saturday of October in the encouragement for neighbors to help neighbors.  This day has been established in order to create camaraderie and friendliness throughout the world, whether that be through the small acts of individuals or the fundraising efforts done by Kansas City small businesses.  And Make a Difference Day could not have come at a better time; right in the middle of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which just so happens to be an ideal opportunity to make a difference in the community.  Need a new way to make a difference this week?  One way is to participate in the "2 for Tuesday" deal going on tomorrow in Kansas City.  

In honor of this important month and trailing behind Make a Difference Day, Susan G. Komen for the Cure will present “2 For Tuesday” tomorrow—an unbeatable Hereford House food and drink special in which proceeds will go directly towards the support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the hope of saving lives, empowering people, and finding a cure. 

The drive behind the development of “2 For Tuesday” came from the collaboration of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Hereford House and DealBug, an online daily shopping site dedicated to offering coupons towards products and services from community merchants while supporting schools, charities, and other non-profit organizations.  Through these three organizations and in the support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Susan G. Komen for the Cure invites Kansas City locals and friends to the Leawood Hereford House location for a cup of the famous steak soup, a roll and a soft drink for only $2.00.  In order to receive this unbeatable deal, supporters must visit, sign-up, print out the voucher and present it to the Hereford House.  As a result of the purchase, DealBug will donate $1.00 to every new sign-up that occurs between October 25th and 26th.  It's an easy and fun way to give back to the community, enjoy a hearty lunch, and do your part by making a difference during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  

The three companies who have come together in order to continue with the ongoing support of cancer awareness have decided to make a difference in Kansas City, and you can too!  During Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honor of Make a Difference Day, I encourage you to think about what you and your small business will do to make a difference. 

“2 For Tuesday” is being sponsored by ClickSpeed.  For more information, please visit or contact Robin Gearheart at (877) 467-5401.
