I came across the 3/50 Project today and I highly reccomend you all take a minute and go to their website. It’s all about supporting our local businesses and they break it down in terms everyone can understand. For example: If half the employed population spent $50.00 a month in locally owned independent businesses it would generate $42.6 BILLION DOLLARS in revenue.
Go visit their site, become a supporter. It’s all free and spread the word. If we all do our part maybe we can save our brick and mortars.
