Give businesses a boost



Here is an idea to help support local businesses in this trying time when we are all staying home. Buy yourself or a loved one a gift certificate from your favourite shop or restaurant. You may be able to do this online, or give them a call and do it over the phone. Hold on to it until we are back to normal and then redeem it later. The shop or restaurant gets money now when they need it, and you can think of this as getting a head start on doing your Christmas shopping or maybe giving yourself a treat to look forward to when this crisis has passed.
