The Shop. Give. Local. event was a fun and successful event! Go Buy Local wishes to THANK YOU for being a part it. Yesterday shoppers in downtown White Bear Lake were able to earn donations for a school or cause they LOVE while supporting Goodthings as part of the Shop. Give. Local. event.
The sun was shining, blue skies all around and customers were in their spring attire ready to shop. Goodthings partnered up with Go Buy Local to ensure that every time a customer spent more than $50 dollars, Goodthings sent a $5♥ donation to the customer’s favorite nonprofit.
During the event customers were able to meet and greet local vendors from around the state and learn what inspired them to start their own company. Try a spoonful of ice cream made from an ice cream ball maker and quench their thirst by sampling basil cucumber infused water. There were also samples available from the amazing and creative local Big Wood Brewery and delicious food made with Stonewall Kitchen products. Yum!
As shoppers approached Goodthings storefront, they had the opportunity to sign up with Go Buy Local before shopping, take a fun picture at our photo booth, and pick the nonprofit closest to their heart for a chance to win one of two $20♥ donations. The two nonprofits that won the drawing are Macalester Plymouth Preschool and White Bear Center for the Arts. Congratulations!
Next to Go Buy Local’s table there were three nonprofits ready to tell their story and encourage customers to sign up with Go Buy Local. Every time a customer uses one of over a thousand free offers at Go Buy Local.com or using the mobile app, the customer can chose their school or cause as the designated recipient. The nonprofits at the event were; H2O for Life, Lakeshore Players Theatre, and White Bear Center for the Arts. “Our goals with Go Buy Local are to get enough people to sign up each month in order for it to make a difference at the end of the day, for our mission to be successful, and I hope it spreads around the nation!” expressed Patricia Hall with H2O for Life.
We had such an amazing time and LOVE the fact that we were asked to be a part of this great event! As we mentioned before a big THANK YOU to Lakeshore Players Theatre, White Bear Center for the Arts, H2O for Life, Goodthings and YOU for making Go Buy Local’s mission possible.
