In the spirit of the holidays, today and tomorrow, we're donating Groupon to Imerman's Angels, a great Chicago charity that connects newly diagnosed cancer patients to survivors.
Imerman's Angels is holding a Toy Drive on Friday, December 5th, raising money to buy Nintendo Wiis for children enduring difficult hospital stays. $30 will buy you a ticket to the event, which includes an open bar and appetizers from 6:00 to 8:30. And while there's no discount today (you can't really offer a "deal" on charity), that also means there's no minimum number of tickets required.
After surviving a heroic battle with cancer at the age of 26, founder Jonny Imerman started Imerman's Angels so no one would have to go through what he went through - isolation from others who had fought cancer and survived. By connecting cancer fighters to survivors, Imerman's Angels gives patients strength and comfort as they battle the disease. Jonny is a friend of Groupon's, and hearing his personal story is truly inspiring. We're proud to help Immerman's Angels, and hope you will support this great cause.
