#MYBASTROP & THE #SMALLBUSINESSREVOLUTION
Bastrop, TX has been selected as one of ten finalists in the country - and the only city in Texas - to be selected to host season 3 of the "Small Business Revolution" and win a $500,000 downtown revitalization!
About the #MyBastrop Movement
Most people hear "Deluxe Corporation" and think of checks. In Bastrop, we think "Revolution" and how we can be a part of it. Deluxe has been a proud champion of small business since 1915, but recently they have taken things to a new level by creating an original series called "Small Business Revolution*Main Street". As a leader in marketing services and products for small businesses, Deluxe realized small businesses in small towns are the future of the American economy. They created this series to help small businesses, and in turn, those small towns, reignite the spark that drives them and keeps people coming back. Each season, one small town – and six small businesses – win a $500,000 revitalization and life-changing transformation. Wabash, Indiana and Bristol Borough, Pennsylvania are believers and after watching just one episode, you will be a believer too.
Season Three has started and the process for picking a winner has changed. From thousands of nominations across the country, they narrowed the list to Top 20 and then on December 12 announced the Top 10 Small Towns and Bastrop, TX was included!
On February 13th, Deluxe Corporation will announce the top 5 - and the fun begins. If Bastrop is selected to participate in the TOP 5, we will need the support of the entire state of Texas to bring this one home for the Lone Star State. Everyone in the country is eligible to vote and the small town with the most votes wins. Over 1,000,000 votes were cast in selecting the winner of Season 2!
Here's how you can help us win! Our request is simple. Please share why you love Bastrop on social media by using #MyBastrop & #smallbusinessrevolution from now until February 13. We ask that you post early and post often as this metric is a key factor in determining which town is selected.
Once we make it to the top 5 (because we are bound and determined) Bastrop will be asking the entire state of Texas, and the rest of the country to help bring The Small Business Revolution home. The momentum behind this movement transcends to all Texans. We believe in our small towns, we believe in our community and we believe in each other.
Voting for the top 5 begins February 13 and ends on February 20. Please join us in voting EVERY DAY for Bastrop. Vote online at: www.smallbusinessrevolution.org
