#1 ✨ READ ME: DO WE SHARE THE SAME MORALS & GOALS?

We are trying to build something unique and special. Our goal is to build a community that supports local businesses and understands that we need to support the things we love, but also challenge them to make better things and be better.

We’re looking for SM Ambassadors that share the same passions. Here are some things about us.

  1. LOCAL: We partner with local groups (like MN Craft Brewers Guild, etc) that directly support and impact the industry.
  2. SUSTAINABILITY: We are green, but we’re also trying to encourage all partners to follow suit! (if you are passionate and a writer make sure you respond to the emails as we’re working on something else here)
  3. PASSPORTS & QUALITY: Each passport is a DIFFERENT experience, featuring a THEME, and curated partners that fit. Full of hand-made art, stories, and recommendations.
  4. INCLUSIVITY: We hope to make a community that comes together around quality products they love.
  5. CHARITY: Passports don’t just support local businesses, each also donates to a specific non-profit.

Sounds good? Proceed.
