Two days ago, I asked you on Instagram who are the independent and small businesses we need to support.
This week and in the coming months there are so many people, families and businesses experiencing such uncertainty and they are all acting with grace and positivity. I'm listing all the suggestions you had, and we can update this list as needed. Maybe you'll take a look, just give them a follow for now, or consider purchasing something from them if that's applicable.
Keep in mind that you could buy a gift voucher for when restaurants re-open, leave a glowing review of your yoga teacher for when they come back to work or simply send a friendly "hello".
We can do this.
