They are calling it "The Big Give," and more than thirty businesses in downtown Holland will donate 15% of their sales to charity on February 1.

The more you spend, the more good you do in the community. Each of downtown Holland's businesses has selected a charity that is meaningful to them and will donate 15% of sales during "The Big Give." More than thirty owners of retail shops, restaurants, and service organizations are participating. That means whether you spend your money on clothing or camping gear, shoes or sandwiches, coffee beans or a bicycle, part of it is funding organizations working to make our world a little better.
