A "cash mob" is an event in which a large group of people descends on a single independent store in a coordinated strike to give the local economy a little boost. Then everyone goes out for drinks.
We recently covered the cash mob phenomenon in The Daily GOOD. Now we’re getting involved.
Saturday, March 24 is International Cash Mob Day. Here in Los Angeles, we’re joining forces with our local cash mob group to support MADE by DWC, a café and gift boutique operated by the nonprofit Downtown Women’s Center. If you’re in Los Angeles, like buying things sometimes, and can get behind the idea of supporting homeless and low-income women, we would love for you to join us. And yes, we’re going for drinks afterwards.
The mob will meet at the corner of Boyd St. and San Pedro St. at 1:45 p.m. on Saturday, March 24th. You can get the full details at the Facebook event page.
Our friends from Lomography will be there to document the day. We’ll post a follow-up article with photos early next week.
