WELCOME TO CASH MOB! VERMONT

Now that the 24th has come and gone, there are more cash mobs planned in Vermont in a community near you! For a Cash Mob near you, click on the community on the navigation bar.
The next Cash Mob in Vermont isn't scheduled until July 14th in Barre. But, it's easy to organize - consider organizing your own! This site can help you publicize. Just email me, Emily Kaminsky, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What are Cash Mobs?*
The general idea is to encourage people to go into small, local businesses and spend their money, en masse, to give the business owner a little bit of economic stimulus. We’d help businesses grow, we’d make people happy, we’d get stuff for ourselves, have a great time, and maybe we’d get a drink to celebrate afterward.
Who Started Cash Mobs?
The first gathering called a “Cash Mob” appears to have been held in Buffalo, NY, on August 5, 2011, and was organized by blogger, Christopher Smith. Since then, Cash Mobs have been sprouting up all across the U.S., Canada, and around the world. While organized by many different groups of people, all appear to have the same goal in mind: to support local businesses that they love! Here in Vermont, the first cash mob was in Middlebury in early 2012 at the Vermont Book Shop and was organized by Scott Pelligrini. The second was in Waterbury at Bridgeside Books on March 4, 2012 and was organized by the Waterbury Cash Mobbers. Cash mobs are now taking hold of Vermont - will one come to your community? Don't wait, organize one today and use this website to promote it!
Who Is/Are Cash Mobs?
“Cash Mobs” isn’t a political or social organization, a corporation, a movement, or meant to be an answer to economic crisis. By and large, those that organize Cash Mobs are simply people trying to make a positive impact on the businesses in their communities (and have fun while doing it)!
