The first part of this saying is from someone on Facebook that was being posted around the holidays. This saying holds true throughout the entire year and not just around the holidays.
"When you buy from a small home business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You are helping a Mom put food on the table, pay a mortgage, pay for a little girl’s dance lessons, a little boy's jersey for his football/soccer team or help a student pay for college. Our customers are our shareholders - and they are the ones we strive to make happy. Thank you for supporting small home businesses!"
The second part of this is from me personally that I want to add on because it not only affects me currently but many many many other families out there trying to make ends meet. I get so sick of hearing about these CEOs making millions while there are millions of us in the US still struggling to find a job or some kind of income to help meet everyday needs of food, housing and utilities just to stay alive.
"You're also helping people who are unemployed that have been steadily looking for work but cannot find anything so they start a small business out of their home in hopes to make ends meet and be able to keep up with their utilities, pay on their only vehicle and not have their house foreclosed on because they can't pay their mortgage on one income."
I too am guilty of helping those CEOs buy another vacation home, take another First Class trip to some exotic location or buy a huge yacht. There needs to be more "Mom and Pop" stores, restaurants and gas stations so maybe these corporations will think twice. I myself would love to open up a gift and craft store but finances prohibit me from doing so.
