I‘ve briefly talked about the 3/50 Project, which encourages people to buy local, making change by spending as little as $50 a month between 3 locally owned stores that you’d miss if they went away.
The pink shoes are another reason to buy local.
You can read about them here, in today’s guest post from Catholic Light.
Is there a store owner in your town like Mario?
Someone who sponsors ball teams, donates building materials for Scout service projects, lets local organizations use their copy machine time and time again, and so on?
Why not spend a little money there? They’ve earned it.
