Day 6 - Buy Local

Support local businesses by buying local.

Rhode Island is a small business state. Our communities are filled with local makers, retailers, and restaurants. They help keep your money local by investing in supplies, wages, services, taxes, and community donations. Local businesses also shape the character of our communities. Together, we can build a strong economy and vibrant community.

Which businesses are the backbone of your local community? Make a goal to purchase at least half of your holiday gifts from local providers.
There are many ways to give back to our community.

Visit the Rhode Island Foundation's 12 Days of Giving for prompts to get you thinking about initiatives that matter to you.

We hope you’ll be an ambassador for philanthropy in Rhode Island. Use #RIgives or email to share why you give and what you’re proud to support.
