Pledge to be LakesPROUD

Whether you’re an individual or a business, there are a bunch of ways to become involved and support Lakes PROUD. Your first step? Take the pledge and put it into action! All it takes is changing a single monthly purchase to support a business you believe in. Here’s the simple math:

70,000 adults enjoy life in Cass and Crow Wing Counties.  
If all of us changed just one $50 monthly buying decision to support a local business, it would add up to $42 million to our regional economy every year!

3,000 businesses serve communities in Cass and Crow Wing Counties.   
If all of them changed just one $500 monthly buying decision to support their local business friends, it would add up to $18 million to our regional economy each year!

That adds up to $60 million that could potentially stay in the lakes region.

Our vision is for everyone – consumers and businesses alike – to consciously choose goods and services that will strengthen our regional economy. With your support, we can make some waves!
