Did you make the Gift Local Pledge?
During the 2012 holiday season, we launched our first-ever Gift Local pledge campaign, where we invited residents to make the pledge to spend with at least three local independent businesses over the holiday.
The campaign was a great success! We connected with hundreds of thousands of Seattleites with the Gift Local message, inspired 6,000 to visit gift-local.org, and over 2,000 to make an online pledge to shop local for the holidays. Special thanks to our presenting sponsor, BECU, for making the campaign possible, along with dozens of volunteers, participating businesses and sponsors, half a dozen media partners, and over 40 donors.
