Promote Kiva Zip Entreprenurs on Small Business Saturday and get a free t-shirt!

Small Business Saturday is approaching quickly this year - taking place next Saturday, November 29th!

With the goal of helping businesses get more customers through their doors, American Express launched Small Business Saturday in 2010 and it has grown each year into a powerful movement. It is a day dedicated to encouraging people to shop small and local on the day after Thanksgiving.

Kiva Zip wanted to incorporate the awesome small businesses we work with all over the United States. So, this year we not only want to encourage you to visit these businesses, but we want to know about it!

Take a photo at the business(es) you choose to patronize and post it to your Twitter account using the hashtags #WhyIZip and #SmallBusinessSat, and tag us in your post by using @kivazip.

As our way of thanking those of you who participate, we will send a Kiva Zip t-shirt to each person who posts a photo who tags us and uses those hashtags - so keep an eye out for a message from us asking you where we can send the shirt.

More important than the comfortable and fashionable t-shirt, by shopping at places other than your typical big box stores, you'll be supporting your local community and a business owner who is also investing in their community.

Follow us on Twitter @KivaZipand learn more about Small Business Saturday here.
