A friend of mine recently told me about the 3/50 project, aimed at shopping locally and supporting locally-owned businesses. The project's homepage outlines the following on its homepage:
Does the 50 in 3/50 mean as a consumer I need to spend $150 total each month? No...well, not unless you want to (which would undoubtedly be fine with independent business owners). The idea is to commit $50 each month to locally owned businesses, total. Maybe that means rethinking where you currently invest your money, opting to pick up that birthday card or pair of jeans in a locally owned business instead of the big box you’ve been going to. Or maybe it means eating out once a month because you realize slamming the breaks on all spending stalls economic recovery. It’s just that simple.
I've added the 3/50 project badge on the right side of CHB to indicate our support.
Which three will you choose?
