National Cash Mob Day

Last week, as luck would have it, Columbia, South Carolina, Cleveland, Ohio and Austin, Texas all had Cash Mobs at the exact same time.  It was kind of fun to know that other people were mobbing.  Then I remembered someone else suggested that we do a National Cash Mob day.  At the time, it would have been just 15 cities, but now…

But now.

On March 24, 2012, we invite you to a little National Cash Mob action.  Organize a mob in your community for that day.  It can be all day (like Chagrin Falls) or more Flash Mobbish (like Bellport, Long Island, New York). If you haven’t yet planned a mob in your community, try to get one together in the next couple of weeks to get comfortable with it, then plan another for March.

New mob or old, we hope you will join us on March 24, 2012, and know that thousands of other people are doing the same thing as part of this Cash Mob Community!

    Great idea! Does it work better if you pick just one store, or if you do “Main Street”?

    Has anyone considered combining a cash mob with a donation? Go to a local toy store, for example, and follow up by a donate mob to a local children’s charity…

    • Andrew Samtoy says:

      We’ve seen Cash Mobs in conjunction with a canned food drive, but no cash donations as far as I know. Try it and let us know how it turns out!

      • suzanne says:

        for that matter how about donate for blood drives, etc too? or visit mobs to lonely seniors in nursing homes? There is no end to the possibilities!!

    • Jana says:

      We’re trying to organize a cash mob for our non profit (volunteerlansing.com) and are trying to decide if we want to have them donate directly to our organization or to partner with a local business and have them donate a portion of their proceeds. Advice anyone?

      • We have a number of non profit businesses in Denton, such as the second had store which gives all its sales to the crisis pregnancy center, or the coffee house and furniture restoration place that works with a rehab facility. If you have something similar in your town you may consider mobbing those businesses. (we, too, have an active RSVP group in Denton, but they don’t take donations directly; instead they are assigned to partner organizations such as our library, or habitat for humanity).

      • Jana Nicol says:

        We actually decided to do an event on 3/24 at a local art gallery. They are going to give us 25% of their sales during the hour of the cash mob and then the local pizza place down the street is also going to donate a percentage from the cash mob group. We’re very excited about it and have started promoting it on facebook.

  9. AH! I’m so excited! Our (Denton, TX) first mob is this coming Saturday…..but I already have a few more in the works….so FOR SURE we’ll do one on March 24!

Youngstown (Ohio) will participate in National Cash Mob Day in an all-day Cash Mob at Touch the Moon Candy Saloon, a vintage candy shop painted cotton candy pink in a gorgeous historic downtown building. Proceeds from this business help support and employ disabled adults. Our first Cash Mob in February at a wonderful used book shop brought in $1200, as well as love for the store’s 18-pound Maine Coon Cat, Ernie.

  16. I have been hosting a Cash Mob each month since January in Chatham. We are a seaside community where the summer tourist season is the best followed by the fall shoulder season. We only “Mob” stores that stay open year round and then we go out to lunch, coffee, or dinner depending the time of the mob. This way we patronize not just 1 but 2 local businesses. We do have our 3rd Cash Mob scheduled for this Saturday!
