the 3/50 project - saving the brick and mortars our nation is built on

We all stumble, that's why it is a comfort to walk hand in hand.

Did you know that for every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures?  If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here.  Spend it online and nothing comes home.

3 What three independently owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say hello. Pick up something that brings a smile. Your purchases are what keeps those businesses around.
50 If half the employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned independent businesses, it would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue.* Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 the employed population did that.
