The first step you can take to Keep The Cheer Here is to Pledge to Shop Local this holiday season.
- I pledge to spend my holiday shopping dollars at locally owned businesses.
- I pledge to seek local alternatives before ordering online or buying at a national chain.
- I pledge to spread the word to others in the community about the importance of buying local.
Take action on your pledge to shop local by making a purchase and challenging your friends and family to do the same.
KEEP THE CHEER HERE CHALLENGE
- Make a purchase, an item or gift card, at a local business.
- Post a photo of the item to your social media account.
- Add this text to your post:
- "I pledged to shop local this holiday season. Will you join me in the Keep The Cheer Here Challenge? I purchased [item or gift card] from [enter local business name here]. If you want it, it is yours. BUT you have to purchase a gift from another local business and gift it to someone else with the same expectation. Tag me in the post and I will present you with your gift. First come, first served."
- Use the hashtag #getgivegatherlocal to follow the gifting chain in our community.
