Campaign Story

The American Independent Business Alliance (AMIBA) has worked for over a decade to pull Shop Indie Local partners together to support locally owned businesses during the holiday season.  Now, we invite you to fuel our year-round movement to grow more local, equitable, and inclusive economies.

We envision an impactful year-round role for Shop Indie Local, offering imaginative and innovative ways to support locally owned and independent businesses of all types and in all regions in our nation. We’ll build on the momentum we’ve cultivated each November – December since 2010 and elevate Shop Indie Local into a year-round movement.

 

Let’s work together to promote the value of locally owned, independent businesses in sustaining strong local economies and:

  • Demonstrate the strength and resilience of small, independent businesses.
  • Cultivate a stronger alliance to nourish future collaborations to address the challenges that independent businesses face.
  • Galvanize community members to advocate for future changes beyond their own purchasing practices.

With your support, our Shop Indie Local efforts will:

  • Glean the best campaign ideas relating to our six identified themes.
  • Develop adaptable and easily replicable campaigns to share with partners at least three months in advance of launch dates.
  • Increase awareness of and participation from organizations and businesses that support the local economy movement.
  • Empower partners to broadcast the value of locally owned, independent businesses in sustaining strong local, equitable, and inclusive economies.

 

Our 2022 Campaign Themes:

 

We will strive to keep participation in our 2022 campaigns accessible to all communities.  In 2021, Shop Indie Local partnership was free. With your support, we can keep participation free or low-cost to all.

There is no movement without all of you. Please support our crowdfunding campaign today!
