The community nominates local small businesses in their communities. We contact those small businesses, purchase two gift cards, and promote the business along with the details as to how individuals can buy gift cards directly from the business. Each chamber will then donate the gift cards to local non-profits to give to someone in need, donate to a hardworking volunteer, or use in a fundraising auction.
1st -Think of it as buying ad space for someone else’s business. You’re contributing $5, or $10, and along with the donations of others, we will put $100 into a small business as well as advertise on their behalf.
2nd- If a business is closed – all the business chambers in the region know it and can help point to resources that may be helpful during this time.
3rd – We’re contacting every small business nominated. If they have employees who have additional needs, we may have resources to be able to help their employees.
We LOVE how businesses have adapted to today’s challenges and kept jobs safe. Please continue to support any business that has been effected. There are resources such as ____ and ____ and ____ if you would like to give your money to other initiatives. Everyone needs help right now. We’re just going to focus on the ones who are closed.
Please do! If you don’t know how to contact the business, and they aren’t listed on our site, please nominate the business and we’ll work to find the information. (we’ll also buy a $100 gift card from the business when we contact them)
