It's that time of year, folks! The time to start considering and squirreling away gifts for loved ones. The following is part 1 in my 3-part series leading up to Small Business Saturday, and while it is brief, it is also interactive, so get excited!
First, let me explain:
I have witnessed such an awe-inspiring outpouring of positive action for foundations that support hot and threatened social issues by my fellow artists and entrepreneurs since last week's election that I felt motivated to create some sort of space where these causes and small businesses could all be searched and shopped. It is still being developed and filled out, but I add to it every day and am hoping to have a good number of resources listed by Small Biz Saturday. I urge you to check it out and -- here's the interactive part -- encourage your local small businesses to pledge donations to the causes you care about! Then let me know and I'll list them as supportive sellers! WIN-WIN-WIN! If there is a local independent retailer or artist who is already doing so, please send them my way! I'm hoping to use this platform as a connective tool for those of us interested in supporting small, supporting local, supporting causes that we feel passionately about, buying cool stuff, and networking with likeminded individuals.
