Show Appreciation With A Gift Or Donation
With the holidays in full swing, I feel especially grateful this year.
Grateful for the community of entrepreneurs, and travelers who provide inspiration every day. Grateful to the creators who share their knowledge and insights on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. And grateful to my readers, for sharing my appreciation for Korean food, music and culture.
But of course, I couldn’t do it without you.
As I look forward to 2022, I want to thank you for your support with engagement, encouragement, and patience. And during a season unlike any other, I promise I’ll continue giving you my best, highlighting the best Korean cuisine, snack products, variety programming, music spotlights, and more.
In this post, I want to share two communities that have undergone major changes this year and it’s my wish that you keep them in mind this holiday season. Whether it’s through a donation, volunteering, or showing public support.
Shop Local Shop Small
Support local businesses and shop small today on the American Express website. Or if you want to support black-owned businesses check out the website here. Small businesses need our support now more than ever as they adjust to the ever changing regulations from the pandemic.
Please visit these organizations across the country in supporting local small businesses by shopping at a small business today and throughout the holiday season.
It takes resourcefulness, and determination to continue running a business. Korean Convenience is proud to do its part to provide entrepreneurs and travelers with these vital resources.
Support For The AAPI & BLM Community
Korean Convenience stands firmly against all acts of racism, violence, prejudice, and hate. We must all come together to end discrimination, and that includes attacks on people of color in our communities.
I believe in creating a community where people are inspired to learn more about each other, do more to solve societal issues and become their best possible selves.
I also strive to shine a business spotlight on the brilliant contributions and influence these communities have had on all aspects of American society, from arts, culture, and cuisine.
