One day while facebooking I came acrossed a “cause” that caught my eye. After review and going on to their outside website, I found information that was very important to share with everyone. For more information visit the 3/50 website. I’ll leave you with a bit from their website.
3 – What three stores would you miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say hello. Pick something up that makes you smile. Your purchases are what keeps that business around.
50 – If half the employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned businesses, it would generate $42.6 billion in revenue. *Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 the employed population did that.
68 – For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain only $43 stays here, if you spend it online and nothing comes home.
1 – The number of people it takes to start a trend…you.
Pick 3, spend 50 and save your local economy!
