How to #SupportLocal?
How do you support local while practicing social distancing? Doing one of these things listed in our new "31 Ways to Help, Give Back, Things To Do" guide and Support are ways to support local business and show your support:
  • Purchase gift cards online and use for later
  • Order to go, takeout or delivery from local restaurants
  • Shop online! Support your favorite local retailer, artists, author, musician, etc. buy buying their digital or physical products
  • Continue taking classes by video from your instructor (or buy digital course, FaceTime, Zoom Video Conference, etc.)
  • Make a donation, tip or contribution online to show your support.
  • Share on social media! Like a local business’s Facebook and Instagram page, subscribe to their YouTube channel, comment on a post, and share a post with your friends.
  • Leave an online review. Have a great experience and love their products or services? By adding a positive review on Google or Facebook, you are helping the business potentially gain more customers – and brighten their day!
  • Support local musicians, entertainers, and performers by purchasing their merchandise, buying music (songs/albums), streaming music online, and promoting to friends online.
  • Event cancelled? Instead of asking for a refund, consider donating the funds to the small business, nonprofit or charity who needs the funds during this time.
  • Send an encouraging message, note, email or comment on an online post. Words of kindness and hope during this difficult time is a great way to offer your support.
