Shop small.

With the future of the next stimulus bill to help millions of Americans through this pandemic in limbo, small businesses need customers more than ever.

According to the Small Business Administration, small businesses employ 47.5% of the private workforce and spur job growth.

If you’re lucky enough to have spending money, please shop small. If you only have $20 to spend and 99 people also spend $20, that could be enough for small business owners to weather this pandemic. I have already spent about $25 at two small businesses this month and plan to spend about $20 at a local small business next month.

If you can, donate to non-profit organizations, too. When the economy is down, funding goes down, too, so anything helps people stay employed or provide necessary services to those in need. Also remember your mail carrier. They work rain or shine, heat or snow, pandemic or normal.

Have you contributed yet?
