Small Business Saturday is one of my favorite days of the year! As you know from my Do Good series, I love shops with a positive mission. While I mostly write about companies that are helping others, it’s also important to note that supporting small businesses is also a form of shopping consciously. These small businesses and mom-and-pop shops/restuarants are supporting families and allowing people to follow their dreams. We as consumers choose to support this mission every time we shop small instead of heading to your local Target.
As a way to bring these ideas of conscious consumerism together, I’ll be offering up a little something special in my Etsy shop this weekend: 20% of all proceeds on Knitting Ain’t Easy will be donated to Action Against Hunger. A global humanitarian organization committed to ending world hunger, Action Against Hunger been recently listed as an “A”-rated organization by CharityWatch and a four-star charity rated by Charity Navigator .
Maybe knits and home goods aren’t your cup of tea? That’s okay. Use this map to find small businesses in your neighborhood, or check out the links below to shop online!
