Join a ShiftMob today!
ShiftMobs are fun and powerful ways to help make and promote the 10% Shift as we build strong local economies and local economic independence.
ShiftMobs are purchasing parties that …
- Are fun ways to bring folks together to support a locally-owned business
- Help educate our community to benefit of shopping locally
- Introduce customers to really cool local green businesses and encourage shopping at Local Independents
- Improve the financial bottom line of a Local Independent by jacking up sales big time in a one-night sustainable shopping spree (only buy what you need or buy for others in need)
- Collect food, clothing, or other items for local nonprofits that support the hungry and the homeless
We organize of ShiftMobs as a way of demonstrating our support for all locally-owned businesses by focusing a tremendous attention on one or two Local Independents. Although, the focus is on one or two businesses, the primary purpose is to promote all Local Independents and to encourage businesses, nonprofits, government agencies, and residents in making the 10% Shift.
