We should all support the businesses in our corner....
I love you ellen, THANK YOU.
Yes! That's what my partner & I do. A new sponsor of The SMART Ride to Key West this year, which raises money for HIV/AIDS charities (and which my partner helped to found 6 years ago), is Tire Kingdom
, who have already signed on for SMART Ride 7.
And so guess what our car needed when we returned from Key West, after the ride in January? New tires! And where did we get them? Tire Kingdom. And my partner sent their CEO a letter, on official letterhead, thanking him for their support, and letting him know our purchase decision was influenced by their SMART Ride support.http://tirekingdom.com/
And today we had lunch at Rosie's
in Wilton Manors, FL, because the owners, friends of ours, donated 10s of thousands of dollars in free meals to the Ride, and fielded an employee rider team that raised over $30,000. Then there's the Chic Optique
, where we buy our eyeglasses, because the lesbian owners had a rider team that raised $15,000, the girls themselves on Crew and likewise friends of ours. We also shop Target
, a Ride sponsor, and buy our cars from a Ford dealer that provides the vehicle support for free, and so it goes.
I think it's very important to reward our friends & family, and to deny our opponents any of our money & business. Brava, Ellen, and congrats to Tonic.com!
