I know that many shops have special deals and sales during various holidays. Commercialization of holidays is something I struggle with. While I really want people to purchase my products, I don't want to commercialize the holidays, especially not Christmas. Memorial Day sales feel strange to me, especially since my husband served. I don't see how having a Memorial Day sale honors our fallen men and women. Instead, I close my shop.
With the Christmas season fast approaching and Black Friday around the corner, I've decided to do an Alternative Black Friday. There will not be a sale or any deals. Instead, 50% of my profits from Black Friday will be donated to my local food bank. I am currently waiting hear whether they would prefer the donation to be monetary or in food.
I would like to invite you to join me in participating in an Alternative Black Friday. What are some ways things you could do or ideas that you have?
