This morning we attended a great presentation here in Hartville by Cinda Baxter, creator of The 3/50 Project. (If you haven’t read our previous post on The 3/50 Project check it out here: BBT Love for The 3/50 Project) Not only were we excited to have a national speaker come to our little town but we are REALLY excited about all the ideas we have flowing to implement the message.
The 3/50 Project recently launched a campaign called “Keep the Cheer Here” which focuses on shopping in local, independent businesses this holiday season.
Here’s why spending locally makes sense:
Independent local merchants return 68% of their revenue to the community. Big boxes, national chains? Only 13%-43% returns. Out of town websites? Zero.
Spend it here. Get more back.
