Project 3/50

Have you seen this on my sidebar?

What is it?

Good question.

It is a project and a movement designed to help encourage support of locally owned, independent businesses and in turn improve the economy by improving local economies.

Here's how it works.

They ask you to pick 3 independently owned businesses.
Support them.
Stop in.
Purchase something.

Commit to spending $50 a month in these locally owned businesses.

 Hence, 3/50.

I find this idea very intriguing.
I can see how this could bring a lot of good into your own community.

You can read all about it here.
Go here to donate directly to the cause.
