The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties is asking local small businesses to participate in the 2012 Add It Up campaign. Companies who give a minimum of $100 as part of the Add It Up Campaign, sponsored by the organization's Small Business Committee, will receive tickets to the Business Blender on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce. Bryan Nale, the chair of the 2012 Small Business Committee, said that the 2012 Add It Up Campaign is a “fun and easy way for the small business community to come together in supporting a common goal of community enrichment." This campaign emphasizes United Way’s belief that it takes everyone to make an impact in the areas of education, income, health and rebuilding lives. Of the funds raised in 2011, 90 percent of the contributions came from investments of $1,000 or less. For more information about the 2012 Add It Up Campaign, contact Dana Barrett at 615-893-7303.
