FraserNet, The Empowerment Experiment and Black Business Advocates Unite to Promote "Cash Mobs" in 7 Major Cities
NEW YORK CITY-Nationally recognized entrepreneur George Fraser, CEO of FraserNet and Maggie Anderson, CEO of The Empowerment Experiment, and Black business advocates launch their first Cash Mob (Noir), an event that will demonstrate the economic value and benefit of supporting local, quality, Black-owned businesses.
The Cash Mob (Noir) operates the same way as a flash mob, but with one major difference: instead of "flashing" the mob will be "spending cash" at a Black-owned business.
Participants in the Cash Mob (Noir) will spend at least $20 at local Black businesses in Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC/Prince George's County, MD between 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm on Saturday, May 19 to demonstrate the great buying power of Black consumers.
When Black consumers consistently spend more money with Black-owned businesses, the community will see improvement, by way of recycled dollars and job creation. Supporting Black businesses will change lives. Additionally there will be a Mob-Mixer afterwards at a Black-owned lounge from 7-9 p.m. to celebrate and network.
