I’ve recently been reading about a new campaign called ‘Just a Card’on Twitter. Basically it’s a campaign to support local businesses like mine in a world dominated by corporate giants. The campaign is asking people to think before they buy and if they can support local artisans, crafters and creators by thinking of buying from them first before leaving your card or present shop and picking up something last minute in the likes of a 24 hour Tesco shop. There are so many makers out there who rely on you to spend even the smallest amount, for example on a greetings card, these small amounts help keep people in business.
You can read about the campaign here: www.justacard.org and can follow the campaign on Twitter.
