Anti-Prime Days: Let’s Make Ripples

Amazon’s Prime Days (Tuesday, July 16 – Wednesday, July 17, 2024) and Prime Big Deal Days (in October) are PRIME times to focus on the Local Multiplier and other ways our communities benefit when we Choose Indie Local.

As we all make ripples, AMIBA works to transform our ripples into waves. 🌊
