About

Solidarity Bonds is a global non-profit initiative which aims to assist with the digital transformation of traditional brick-and-mortar businesses and to help those businesses generate revenue through the sale of Solidarity Bonds.

We have gathered resources and over 200 experts together in one place to give small businesses the start they need in the world of digital commerce.

This map shows all the participating businesses who have committed to selling Solidarity Bonds. Solidarity Bonds are vouchers that customers can buy at a discounted price. Each participating business is responsible for their own Solidarity Bonds, and these cannot be purchased directly from this website. More information about Solidarity Bonds can be found below.

What's A Solidarity Bond.

A Solidarity Bond is a voucher sold by a business to a consumer for less than its market value, to be redeemed in the future at full value.

For example a $100 “Solidarity Bond” could be sold for $75 and cashed in for full value at a future date.

The business gets some much needed cash up front, and consumers get to support businesses they value while also getting more for their money.

It’s a win-win for business and customer, and ultimately, it’s a win for society as jobs and lives are saved.

How does it work

These would take the form of vouchers that are sold directly by businesses at a suggested price of 25-50% below their market value, but redeemable at full value in the future. The goal is to sell these for the next couple of weeks and months to bring needed Solidarity income to businesses. The Solidarity Bonds can bring in the revenue needed to weather this crisis and save many businesses around the world that are at serious risk of closing permanently. Solidarity Bonds connect the consumer and the merchant in a way that saves jobs, livelihoods and beloved stores, products and services. Businesses will publish these bonds on the landing pages of their websites or in any other way that they regularly connect with their customers, and each business will administer its own vouchers / gift certificates by a method that works best for them and their customers.

How can you help

You can make a difference today by investing in the future of your favorite businesses. Remember, businesses aren’t just products and services, they’re the system in which people earn a living for their families and make their contribution to our society. This initiative is a chance to show our support and avoid people being forced out of work. If enough regular customers who are still getting salaries for jobs can remotely buy the certificates now, they can give the businesses a small cushion to cover expenses, and provide financial assistance to their employees –many of whom are being laid off across the county right now.

In This Together aims to ensure that our economic system keeps working throughout this crisis. Without it, a positive outcome is not possible.

If your favorite business is not a part of this program yet, please let them know about the initiative and ask them to sign up on this website.
