Are you a rural Island business or non-profit? 

The Island COMEBACK campaign is a Pandemic Economic Response and Recovery program that's free to join. The initiative will generate immediate funds for both rural island businesses and community organizations. By building a long-term platform for Gift Certificate purchases and Donations we also build long-term resilience with a goal to “keep the island vibe alive”.

The good news is that you can offer purchasers the option of buying a Gift Certificate, making a Donation or both. Some may choose to collect Donations, if that’s preferable at this time. Initially promoted locally, a global PR campaign will be launched for further promotion.
