The holidays are upon us!
Run for the hills!
Okay, may be some people enjoy seeing family that you haven’t visited all year. May be some of you want to show up with some nifty gifts. … or may be some of you only feel obligated to get stuff for the pesky people.

One way we can all help to end poverty is buy local hire local. When you buy from a local retail store, you are helping an individual support themselves. When a local business hires local people to help run the business, they too are helping an individual support themselves. … Or even a family.
Take a fraction of your budget and spend it with a local business. Have $100 budgeted for groceries? Spend $10 with a local farmer, bakery, or other take-home-yummies maker. Have two date nights budgeted a month? Spend one at a mom-and-pop diner, or pay a friend to make you dinner –after all she wants to open up a restaurant.
Do you know crafty people? What about aspiring entrepreneurs? In most cases, it doesn’t take much to help support your community.
Remember: BUY LOCAL!
