Sometimes the simplest idea is the best, and the 3/50 Project is proof of that.

The 3/50 Project is a relatively simple plan. Pick three businesses in your area you would hate to see go out of business as a result of the recession, and spend $50 in each store. You can then share your story of local support on the site.

An easy way to assist local business. Nice work, 3/50 Project.

Implications - Since the recent economic recession, many consumers have become overwhelmed with the tremendous amounts of loss. Businesses that devote their efforts to assisting society's members at reestablishing their financial security will experience favorable results.
