Geneva’s 1st Cash Mob – Saturday, Sept. 8th

We are excited to announce LOVE GENEVA’s first CASH MOB.

What is a CASH MOB? When a group of people assemble at a local business and buy items to support that business and the overall community. So come out on Saturday, Sept. 8th at any point between 11am-1pm to FA Church Hardware Store. Meet other Love Genevans. Buy an item! It can be as small as a lightbulb or a hammer, or as big as a wheelbarrow or ladder. If a hundred people show up during the cash mob and spend $5 each, that will bring in $500 in just two hours! Believe us, they will be extremely grateful for your patronage and support.

We’re hoping to schedule these cash mobs every two weeks, targeting local businesses old and new. For this first cash mob, we’re giving ourselves a two week hard-start to get the word out. We have no idea how many people are going to show up, but we hope to defy the cynics. So help spread the word. We’ll see you at FA Church’s Hardware on Saturday, Sept. 8th anytime between 11am-1pm.

Geneva Cash Mobs

The initial response for the ‘LOVE GENEVA’ movement has been overwhelming. Over a hundred likes in the first 24 hours of being on Facebook. All of the original LOVE GENEVA bumper stickers were distributed, but the response was so great, we ran out before reaching even half of the stores (new stickers have been ordered in order to stock the places we missed). If you would like a free LOVE GENEVA sticker, stop into most downtown businesses and they will be happy to give one to you (if they have any).

But this project isn’t just about bumper stickers. It is about being agents of change. Even little acts can make a big difference if we work together for the economic and social development of Geneva. So we are working to schedule our first CASH MOB next month.

What is a CASH MOB? Basically, it is when a group of people assemble at a local business and buy items to support that business and the overall community. If a hundred people all show up during the announced time (usually a two hour window) and spend as little as $5 each, that is a much appreciated $500 infusion into that business.

So, in a few weeks, we will announce – both here and on Facebook – the date, the time, and the names of the businesses for our first CASH MOB. Until then, keep spreading the word and keep loving Geneva. It’ll love you back.

Welcome to Love Geneva!

LOVE GENEVA is an independent, grass-roots movement supporting economic and social sustainability in Geneva, NY. We believe true growth and development is accomplished by encouraging and nurturing home-grown resources: whether they be independent financial endeavors or individual artistic expressions. To that ends, we seek to encourage the growth of local independent businesses and artists through multiple means.

We will be using this site to announce events we are sponsoring (such as cash-mobs) and promote local independent businesses and artists.

Above all, this site is dedicated to promoting economic and social sustainability for ALL of Geneva. Show your support and get a bumper sticker today!
