The 3/50 Project

I recently heard about The 3/50 Project and it instantly intrigued me! I love to support local business. Whenever I can I use the small businesses in my community. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into small business ownership.

Every day owners sweep their front doorsteps, unlock the door, turn on the 'open' sign and greet us as we walk in the front door. I personally love to be greeted with a smile. Sometimes I take the time to browse through shops when I'm choosing a gift. Other times I'm in a hurry and I appreciate friendly, quick service when I drop off my dry cleaning. Throughout the day owners provide great customer service, put out new merchandise, cook great meals, and strive to be profitable. At the end of the day owners take one last look around their business, lock the door, turn off the 'open' sign and sigh deeply. They go home knowing that the routine will be repeated tomorrow!

Take a moment today to support the small business owners in your community! It gives them a purpose to open today! The 3/50 Project is a wonderful way to show your support!

This is such an important thing!! Mom and Pop shops are one of the things that makes this country great.
