Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Cambridge Local First, a network of independently owned local businesses in Cambridge, MA announced they would be donating proceeds from their sixth annual “Think Local Thank Local” campaign to benefit On The Rise.
Participating businesses in the “Think Local, Thank Local” campaign pledge a percentage of their revenues earned during the first week of peak holiday shopping season, beginning the day after Thanksgiving, to a selected charity. Promoting the effort with lively street and storefront signs, as well as other media, the campaign aims to mutually energize both local charity and the affiliated local businesses. Past campaigns have benefited charities Food For Free and Cambridge Housing Assistance Fund (CHAF).
