The Baltimore Green Currency Association (the “BNote”) needs to raise about $8000 by early March to print their first run of money. Yes — local organizations can print their own money. Contribution is easy and I hope you will consider donating: Click here to contribute
I’m supporting the Baltimore Green Currency Association for both personal/community reasons and business reasons. From a community standpoint the adoption of local currencies keep money in the area. The more dollars circulate locally the more buying power and jobs stay local. From a business perspective, my office is near the Hampden neighborhood — the starting hub of a wide variety of business and organizations that have already signed-up to accept the currency. I want to be one of the initial therapists participating. Click here for a list of organizations accepting the BNote.
Slow donations aside, there is a lot of buzz about this currency launch. Maryland Morning on WYPR did a segment you can listen to last fall. The association has a press event next week to unveil their new currency design.
