Vote For Shaw Businesses for Mission: Small Business
Chase and LivingSocial are going to award twelve small businesses individual grants of $250,000 to increase awareness of the important role small businesses play in local communities and to help small businesses grow.
An integral step to a business being considered for the grant is for them to receive at least 250 votes online by midnight tomorrow night (Saturday, June 30, 2012). After clearing this hurdle, businesses will be selected for the grants by a panel.
I know of at least two small Shaw-area businesses in the running for consideration, and encourage you all to vote for both (you can vote for more than one business): Beau Thai (a business that I'm an owner of) and Old City Green. Please help these two businesses make the cut by taking just a minute of your time.
VOTING IS EASY! Just click on this link (https://www.missionsmallbusiness.com/), then click "log in and support," then type the business name you want to vote for ("Beau Thai" and "Old City Green"), and then cast your vote!
