Have you heard about the Buy Local Santa Monica Challenge? The Buy Local SM Committee has partnered up with the 3/50 Project to launch this fun program.

What three local businesses do you most love? Or put another way, what local businesses would you miss if they disappeared? Your purchases keep them in business. Their business supports the community. It's a win-win for everyone.

Here's how it works:
1) Pick 3 Santa Monica businesses you absolutely can't live without.

2) Commit to stopping by, saying hello and spending $50 total among your chosen three this month. Your purchases are what keep them around!

3) Tell us about it. Nominate your three favorite at:

Each month, we'll select a winner who will receive a PRIZE and get their picture taken with one of their favorite businesses featured in the local paper with a link to their blog.
