Awhile ago I learned of a wonderful thing that Scentsy did for their local community. It was a great example of giving back to local businesses in your area. I pasted part of the story below but you can click on the tree picture and it will take you to the site to learn more about how you can help stimulate your local economy. This is a great cause and I encourage you all to join me in pledging to help our local businesses.
Scentsy celebrated its rapid rise from a small, family-owned business into one the country’s emerging home décor brands with a fun event designed to contribute to the local community. Orville and Heidi Thompson gave employees and their families $100,000 to spend at 40 family-owned businesses nominated by employees. Each business enjoyed a $2500 increase in sales revenue that day. Employees got to keep the goods and services they bought with their $50 bills.The results were inspiring and fulfilling. Scentsy employees spent more than $10,000 of their own money to help local businesses. Skepticism from small business owners turned to gratitude when they saw there were no strings attached to this organized spend. Some owners were in tears. Others commented they didn’t think they would have survived the summer without it.
