Cash Mobs have become popular all over. The Lufkin, Texas business association has made Cash Mobs a part of its Main Street revitalization effort. Lufkin's Main Street director Barbara Thompson said business had been slow and the mob was the push downtown merchants needed. Lisa Gilmore in Los Angeles just doubled the size of her first Cash Mob, going so far as to hand out fliers and set up booths to gain participants at farmers markets in the city. There have been two in Cleveland and the list of other mobs around the world is growing day by day.
The neat things about having all of these people join in a Cash Mob effort is that it shows how group activism can work, helping small businesses and restaurants while also generating a spirit of accomplishment in a strictly local effort. Foulk and the PDA will do it again Sept. 8. We hope you'll sign up to be with us as we work to boost downtown Pleasanton.
