The 3/50 Project

Purposeful Women around the globe are growing the world’s economy by opening businesses.  Women owned businesses are on the rise and many of those are brick and mortar locations.  The 3/50 Project focuses on small business owners with actual locations that can be visited and shopped.  Their tagline? “Saving the brick and mortars our nation is built on.”

Here is a little overview from their website The350project.net:

Think about what three independently owned businesses you’d miss most if they were gone. Stop in and say hello. Pick up a little something that will make someone smile. Your contribution is what keeps those businesses around.

If half the employed U.S. population spent $50 each month in independently owned businesses, their purchases would generate more than $42.6 BILLION in revenue. Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 of the employed population did that.

Pick 3.  Spend $50. Save your local economy.

As we head into the weekend – and may be looking for a last minute Mother’s Day gift, I thought that it would be worth the space here to support our locally owned and operated businesses.
