"I will spend $100 at local Back Bay stores affected by the Boston Marathon Bombing but only if 10 other people will do the same."

More details
Small businesses in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston, location of the finish line of the Boston Marathon and the recent bombings have been closed for over a week. This can have a devestating effect on small businesses.

Boston Globe Journalist and blogger @ScottKirsner started a movement on Twitter #BacktoBackBay to encourage us all to return to the Back Bay once the security perimeter is lifted and help restore these businesses back to health.

I will create a pinterest board where folks can post their receipts, in the meantime, Make a Pledge to go #BacktotheBackBay!

This pledge has now closed; it was successful!
