Become a Neighborhood Champion by October 16 at 

In partnership with American Express, the National Main Street Center would like to invite you to become a Neighborhood Champion for Small Business Saturday® to help make Nov. 29 one of the biggest days of the year for your local small businesses.

Help Small Businesses Do More Business

In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help business owners with their most pressing need, getting more customers. Four years later, the day continues to rally shoppers nationwide to support local small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Lead the Way

Help your community participate in Small Business Saturday this year by becoming a Neighborhood Champion. In 2013, nearly 1,500 individuals and local organizations signed up to rally their neighborhoods to celebrate the day.

As a Neighborhood Champion, you can make an impact by:
•    Organizing a neighborhood event to get your community excited about the day
•    Rallying your local small businesses to participate and encouraging your neighborhood to Shop Small®

Get What You Need for the Day

Commit to be a Neighborhood Champion by Oct. 16, and you will receive a Small Business Saturday event kit containing branded merchandise including items such as balloons, mats and shopping bags to help support your event on the day.

For inspiration on how to rally your neighborhood, Neighborhood Champions can check out Event Guides on and will also receive monthly emails filled with helpful planning resources to help prepare for the day. See Terms of Participation for additional details.
