South Buffalo cash mob planned for March 6

blog by S.J. Velasquez  • 

A group of South Buffalo residents concerned with bettering the community are using the popular “cash mob” model as a way to inject some more cashflow into a neighborhood nonprofit.

South Buffalo’s Concerned Residents Engaged in Work (CREW) are encouraging Western New Yorkers to come down to the southern part of the city to spend some dollars at Dog Ears Bookstore and Cafe, a nonprofit organization located at 688 Abbott Road, from 6 to 8 p.m. March 6.

Inspired—although not official endorsed—by Buffalo Cash Mob, CREW members urge participants to spend between $10 and $20 at the bookstore and/or the newly opened cafe.

Dog Ears is a nonprofit entity. Sales from the cafe and bookstore benefit the community, particularly the Enlightenment Literary Arts Center on the second floor of the building that houses the bookstore and cafe.

The cash mob model was conceived by Western New Yorker and Artvoice blogger Chris Smith. The first official cash mob was organized by Smith, drawing approximately 100 people to City Wine Merchant on Main Street in downtown Buffalo. Since its inception, cash mobs have occurred around the world.
