Information Highway Brings Us…

… lots and lots of ideas. It's a huge forum with all the things you could ever think about wanting to know …and then some. Surfing around, I came across Cinda Baxter's brainchild: the 3/50 project. I don't want to preach, but I do want to share. I think Cinda is brilliant. Her concept, in a nutshell is to save local economies, three stores at a time. Cinda points out that shopping local has the impact of keeping that money local which in turn benefits the local economy. Cinda's principals are built around our neighbours to the South and their economy, but I believe that her concept can be applied just as easily in Canada. Obviously the Canadian figures would be different than the American ones, to approximately the tune of 1/10th. That still brings us to the impressive figure of $4 billion in revenue a year. The idea of saving the brick and mortars that any nation is built on is an important one. I would encourage you to go look at Cinda's website
