Hey, Niagara, we need your help! We want to raise as much money as possible, so we can donate 100% of the proceeds to small businesses in Niagara- to make sure they can continue to keep their doors open!


We understand that in order for this initiative to work, we need to maintain complete transparency about which businesses we nominate to receive the money and the amount we choose to allocate to them. That’s why Sheri, John, and I will work together to decide, without bias, which businesses need the money the most, based on the criteria below.


We will be opening up the application process as soon as we reach $10,000; in which we ask that only local Niagara businesses that meet the criteria below apply. This will help make sure that we help those that need it the most, first.


Let’s take a stand against the closure of local businesses, and come together as a community to keep as many Niagara doors open as possible.
Keep fighting the good fight,

Nick Samson
