Dispatch from Jacksonville, Florida
Just wanted to give you an update on what is happening in Jacksonville, FL.
We just had our third cash mob and we keep increasing momentum. This last event drew 81 people. We mobbed a local stationery store and I handed out stamps and encouraged mobbers to write a letter to a loved one, to a friend and tell them about the great things happening in our city, to your favorite non-profit with a small donation enclosed or to your neighbor and invite them over for dinner… all things to encourage maintaining our social capital and fostering our sense of community.
I really appreciate all of your help and guidance. As you can see, we have steadily increased our participation and economic impact every month.

This month I plan on doing a regular cash mob and conducting a ‘lunch mob’ at a local farmers market. That’s a great idea about the lunch mob concept.
