3/50 Project seeks $50/month for local businesses

Cinda Baxter, local retail consultant, blogger and owner of the former Calhoun Village stationary store Details, Ink., has launched a project aimed at giving a financial boost to local, independent businesses that looks poised to go viral.

The 3/50 Project, which asks supporters to pick three indie businesses -- or, in Hot Dish's case, local restaurants -- and to spend 50 bucks on each of them every month. Can't do 50 bucks? Neither can we. How about 10 or 20 though?
