At Monadnock Buy Local, we love to boast about the positive impacts locally owned businesses have on our community -- like how much they contribute to nonprofits. Compared to big businesses, small businesses donate more than double as much per sales dollar to charities. However, the news tends to focus on national chains and their give back programs.
The Monadnock United Way is collaborating with us on #GivingTuesday, a global day of online giving. We’re working to encourage participants to give where they are and donate to locally owned nonprofits in their community. Participating Monadnock Buy Local Member businesses set up their own online giving page to encourage their customers, clients and staff to #givewhereyoulive.
