I Pledge to Shop Small, Shop Local.
When holiday shopping this year, I’m choosing to make an important investment in the community.
From brilliantly crafted products to genuine, personal service, my experiences at my favorite small businesses leave me in continual awe. Add some of the most inspiring business owners I’ve encountered (virtually and otherwise), and my decision is firm:
I pledge to exclusively shop small, local businesses through the new year.
And I invite you to join me in this pledge. If you’re with me, join the conversation by spotlighting your faves on social media. Check into your favorite small businesses on Facebook, Tweet about them using hash tag #ShopSmall and upload your favorite small biz products on Instagram.
Have a favorite you’d like to share? Comment below or link them to my Facebook page so I can promote and follow them, too!
Starting tomorrow, I’m kicking of the “Shop Small, Shop Local” initiative by featuring a selection of my all-time favorite businesses in a series of interviews, gift guides and giveaways.
Can you guess who our first feature will be?
Check back tomorrow to find out… and for a stellar giveaway.
