Last week, we launched our Buy Local holiday spending campaign, hoping to mobilize the local citizenry in an effort to inject millions (yes, millions) of dollars into the local economy, asking people to pledge to spend $100 at locally owned Chippewa Valley businesses this holiday season. And you guys have really responded.
There’s a million reasons to buy local, of course. But check out the Buy Local campaign page to learn exactly how much of your money can stay in the Chippewa Valley. Over 600 Facebook users have already pledged their intention to spend $100 at Chippewa Valley stores from the web page. But that’s just the tip of the buy local ice berg – countless others have shared and re-shared the Buy Local campaign on their Facebook walls, spreading the message to friends and family, who have done the same, and so on. And almost 50 local businesses have also pledged their support.
So again, you people are awesome. Keep the community strong, y’all. Keep it going: http://volumeone.org/buylocal
