Small Business Saturday. A relatively new tradition to support local small businesses, instead of focusing on the larger corporations usually featured during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. What are your favorite small businesses to support?
One of our favorite collections of businesses to support are those run by our families in Ecuador! Here are a few to share about with you:
A few of our families peel garlic (“ajo”) for a living. It’s a long process, but it sure makes the home smell great!
One of our moms is a seamstress! She has sewn the shirts (including the beautiful Starfish logos) for our employees, students and trip participants each year.
This Saturday, which small businesses are you supporting?
Are you joining us for #GivingTuesday
, to support the Scholars of the families above? Don’t forget! We are excited to see you there.
