Kickstart the BNote
The idea for a local currency for the communities of Baltimore grew out of Evolver discussions at Spores on alternative economic systems. In the last ten months, we have been able to take our thoughts about what real, local money can do for struggling local merchants and the community at large and develop a system that currently has 20 participating businesses and the strong support of local civic groups and residents.
With a Wal-Mart planned for a neighborhood adjacent to our initial launch area of Hampden, in the heart of Baltimore, we have little time to embed the BNote into the economic landscape of the city and encourage people to support small, independent shops. We have the power to keep money circulating within our communities, as local currency is designed to, and prevent it from being drawn out by large corporations to be booked elsewhere as profit or given as executive bonuses. You can help us, by joining us on our Kickstarter page. Let's build one of the strongest local currencies in the nation and seed the experience to Evolver groups in other cities, so we can build real economic choice back into our communities!
We are now a non-profit under Fusion Partnerships, a collective of local change-oriented organizations, so all donations are also tax-deductible. Thanks for your help, and if you would like to join our mailing list to keep up on our progress as we launch, just drop us a line at email@example.com.Tweet
