Share and Show Gratitude

I don't often post causes on social media, but I feel compelled to reach during this time. Our local restaurants, bars, retail shops and services, and other similar businesses are really suffering. Revenues are WAY down; employees are losing their jobs. I also feel bad for the people that can't work remotely and have to show up every day. Think of all the grocery clerks, stockers, medical personnel, emergency responders - the list goes on.

So, what if we all bought gift certificates from our favorite local businesses and gifted them to these employees that are working hard and showing up every day. $5, $10, $25.

Every small token of gratitude will help the greater whole. Please share with others.
