Rally Downtown was created after Superstorm Sandy in order to help small businesses get back on their feet. Nearly every business lost a week of revenue, inventory and other assets. Sales have still not bounced back for those lucky enough to have survived intact and reopen their doors.
Currently, Rally helps drive traffic to small businesses in creative ways, and is committed to donating a minimum of 10% of their revenue to local non profit organizations. The commercial character of New York City's neighborhoods can only be preserved if we support our unique small businesses. Rally will continue to develop new ways to support small businesses and encourage folks to shop local.
