#GIFTthroughit Movement from BRANDED Collective

by Emily Waddell

One of our fabulous brand partners, BRANDED Collective, launched a movement to spread some cheer during these questionable times. The #GIFTthroughit movement is encouraging people to mail their loved ones a gift from a small business! This is great because it helps support small businesses during these tricky times and spreads joy to your friends while social distancing. I'm packing up three boxes to send to my friends and will be posting a video shortly to share my experience. Check out the rules of the game below!

BRANDED Collective's #GIFTthroughit Game Rules

The game is called GIFT THROUGH IT. Here’s how it works:

1. Choose a favorite small business (or two!).
2. Shop online and send a gift to someone you know who needs a little encouragement (um... everyone!).
3. Both the giver and recipient post about their #GIFTthroughit experience on social media.
4. Hey recipient... Tag, you’re it! Choose a gift from a local small business in your community and send it to someone else.
5. Repeat!

Sweet friends, let’s GIFT through it by loving each other with locally made goodies that keep our small businesses thriving.
