What if we told you that you could shop for everyone on your list AND help make a big contribution to Nashville nonprofits...without spending a single extra cent? It's true! #IndieNashGiving is a movement for local businesses on #SmallBusinessSaturday (11/25) to have a real impact in our community. Check out the link in our bio to see what businesses are participating & where they're donating! #parnassusmusing
