How to Support Small Businesses During COVID-19

We’re all going through this crazy time together so we wanted to put aside the fearful news updates for a minute and give you some ideas on how we can work together to make things better for our hearts and our communities.

Small businesses are hurt by this virus. These businesses are the backbone and flavor of our community, we need to support them now so they will be here once the dust settles. The purpose of this blog is to let you know about local small businesses that need your help during this time.

Please read and share with others. We can’t list every small business in need of help so if you know of any others please give them a mention in the comments.

Help Artists & Creatives

There are many ways to help out artists and creatives. Many are holding fundraisers on social media. Musicians are hosting Facebook Lives with fundraisers to try to raise money since their gigs have been cancelled. One of the best ways to support artists and creatives is to purchase their work. Look out for special offers like free shipping or discounts in webstores. This article offers great ideas on how to help out your creative friends.
