I'm sure you've heard all the raucous surrounding Occupy Wall Street, bank greed, class warfare, etc. And maybe you're turned off by the thought of group protests. But you can still do your part easily and make a big impact. How?
Sure, on Black Friday, everybody will be waiting in lines at midnight to get the best deals at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and other large chain corporate stores. But how about you sleep in that day? Maybe go for a walk to work off all those calories you ate the day before. And on Saturday, celebrate all the small business owners in your area.
Small businesses are what make this country what it is. The American dream - owning your own business, setting your own hours, be your own boss, building something that your future family generations can inherit, and possibly making a difference in your community.
These people are your neighbors, your family, your friends. It's time to support them during this economic crisis. Take the pledge to shop small at http://www.facebook.com/SmallBusinessSaturday.
