There are a lot of amazing resources out there right now for free from big companies and brands, and that is AMAZING. Use them up and enjoy them.
However, I also want to discuss small businesses in your community that are struggling during these times of closure and social distancing. When we “go back to normal” I am sure we hope they will all be there for us. If we can, now, we need to try and support them so that they ARE able to re-open.
Check out what offerings they are attempting to have that might be online or virtual or carry out or do-it-yourself. If it makes sense in your own financial situation, support them how you can. Maybe you can’t do everything they offer but something once a week or once a month or an e-giftcard that you can pay for now and use later.
If budgets are tight, which is understandable, leave them a positive review on Google or YouTube or Yelp. Share their page with your friends. Maybe some of them might want the services and be able to support them.
Community is important, and times like these can really bring out the best in our communities. I hope that is the case for all of our amazing small business owners out there. Hang in there. Hang tough. Hang together.
