It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.
As this lockdown of certain businesses being closed continues I want to urge you to pick up the phone. Without a little bit of effort some of your favorite small businesses might just disappear for good. Show them that you are still here for them, not just waiting for things to get better.
Call your hairdresser and ask for products or a gift certificate. Call your local bar and see if they have your favorite cocktail to go. Do your kids on Christmas day usually go to the go karts? Get a certificate for a later date. Without our support many of these places will close for good.
I say this because we went to get something screen printed for a Christmas gift and our favorite shop was closed. Phone was disconnected and the lock was on the building. No communication, no nothing.
So if you have a favorite place to get your favorite drink, smoothie, burger, embroidery work, whatever…show them! Stop waiting for things to get better. For many, if we wait, things may not come back.
With inky fingers,
P.S. This is not about me. I am not in jeopardy of closing. But several places are close to shutting. Be kind and show your support.
