It’s a packed house!

Your Biz Your Town
Your Biz Your Town – February 2014

Every month when we host Your Biz Your Town (#YourBizYourTown) it makes us happy to live and work in Grand Rapids. There is so much good going on in our community from great events, wonderful nonprofits to professionals supporting other professionals – we are happy to be able to highlight just a few amazeball happenings for you.

This month the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan, West Michigan Public Relation Society of America and the Humane Society of West Michigan joined Shelley Irwin and 834 in studio.
Down Syndrome Association, 3.21 Shop!

World Down Syndrome Day is on March 21st, a day that celebrates individuals born with 3 copies of chromosome 21, which is unique to those born with Down syndrome. World Down Syndrome Day was created to promote awareness and understanding of Down syndrome and to advocate for inclusion, rights and a better life.
From March 17th through March 23th, the local community will be able to show their support for the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan (DSAWM) and local business through a small $10 donation in exchange for great deals at a wide variety of local businesses throughout West Michigan.

Check out all the details here. I mean, this is awesome.
