Join the Indie Revoltion by 1/31/09 ! I did and you can too! Win $5800 in local gift ceritificates!

Can a New Year’s Indie Resolution

Change the World? The Folks from the East Bay Express think it can!


The Resolution:

“I resolve to increase my support of independent businesses and artists, and I will put my thoughts, actions and dollars behind my local community.”

The Reward:

By making the Indie Resolution, you are creating a healthier, more thoughtful, and stronger community, economy, and life for yourself.

The Incentive:

A chance to win $5800 in local gift certificates! Why $5800? Fifty-eight percent more of your money stays in the community when spent at local, independent businesses rather than out-of-town chains. Think about every dollar you spend, and how you can circulate it here, in your community.

How to Participate:

Email your name and mailing address by 1/31/09 to Indie@EastBayExpress.com. You will receive an Indie Resolution Journal in the mail in February, along with info on how to identify a local, indie

business. Each month, make at least one journal entry of what you did to support the theme of the month. You will receive a monthly email that explains the theme, and makes suggestions for activities.

At the end of the year, mail your Journal back to the Express by 12/31/09, and you will be automatically entered into the drawing.
