vote with your money coin
Vote With Your Money is part of our ‘Campaign Shop Independent initiative’. Our aim is to show people the difference it makes when you support independent and encourage everyone to spend consciously; from your morning latte to your evening read, everything has an impact and it’s time we realised the power we all hold in our pockets – money!
Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want to live in.
In 2019 we sent four #VoteWithYourMoney ‘chain mail’ campaign coins out to the small business community, to help spread the word. The coins feature our campaign artwork created by Alice Gabb and engraved by LillyBelle Designs. It arrives in the most beautiful bag created by Emma Giacalone Textiles – they are small business beauty through and through!
So far, they have been to 20 independent businesses across the country, reaching nearly half a million people with our #VoteWithYourMoney message!
‘When you shop small, you’re buying into someone’s imagination.’
‘Voting with your money makes a difference and helps to keep our towns and self employed community thriving!’
‘By signing this coin, we’re encouraging our followers to supporting independent shops and artists,’
‘When you chose to spend your money with an independent business it really does make a difference and makes our world a more colourful and interesting place.’
Our #VoteWithYourMoney coins have travelled between 20 independent businesses across the UK! From Kent to Cornwall to Yorkshire, they have travelled over 1000 miles and reached over half a million people through social media.
