SEATTLE — The holidays tend to involve spending quite a bit of money, but Intentionalist wants to challenge consumers to spend more thoughtfully this season.
Intentionalist is an online guide to minority-owned businesses within the community. Beyond its purpose as a directory, the site aims to build a community by interviewing local business owners and creating meet-up opportunities. Founder, Laura Clise shared the importance of shopping locally and showcased the kinds of unique gifts you can find at a small business.
A few of Laura's favorites:
Intenionalist also works with businesses to support and encourage spending in local communities. Intentionalist worked with PR firm Porter Novelli to make a gift guide that will be sent to their clients to showcase local businesses where corporations can spend regularly on day-to-day items like office supplies, caterers, florists and photographers.
