Small Business Saturday is a nationwide campaign to spur shopping at small businesses between Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2010.  As I have said before, small businesses are a key component to sustainability in a neighborhood and it looks like I am not the only one that believes that, so does American Express. Before big box stores these are the businesses that we relied upon, and why neighborhoods thrived in the past.  If you click the facebook link for Small Business Saturday, and click "Like" American Express will donate from $1.00 up to $500,000 to Girls Inc.  American Express is also giving a $25 statement credit to 100,000 cardmembers who register their card and use it on November 27, 2010 at small businesses. Your link to enroll your card is on the facebook site.  At the bottom of the facebook page you can also promote your small business on Small Business Saturday with free Facebook advertising and other promotional tools that is just a click away but you must register your small business before November 18th, 2010. Go to   I'm In! Won't you join me in supporting small businesses too?  Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter about your favorite shops and eateries.  Also you can go to the 3/50 project site, and download a postcard or poster to continue to promote supporting small businesses with the "Big Things Come From Small Boxes" campaign up until December 31, 2010.  Let's not stop there though, this is something that we need to continue on everyday to help our small businesses and neighborhoods they are in.  Click the link for more information.
