As the holiday season quickly approaches, people are ready to begin their Christmas shopping. While some people have already started purchasing gifts for friends and family, many folks will begin to do the bulk of their Christmas shopping just after Thanksgiving.

Do you think that it would be possible to do 100% of your Christmas shopping locally, at independent retailers, avoiding national chains and websites? If so, you may be interested in this. The website business.org is looking for someone to do just that this year. They're actually willing to pay someone $1,000 to do it! So long as you keep your Christmas shopping local, and document your journey on social media, you'll get paid the money… which could end up paying for most, if not all of your expense from Christmas shopping. How cool is that?

If this sounds like a challenge you'd be up for, you can head to business.org to apply. The deadline is November 27th, so do it soon!
