It's six week now since many Irish businesses were forced to close down due to Covid-19 restrictions.
However, a group of volunteers have gotten together in Limerick to ensure that some of those small businesses that were forced to shut can maintain some level of business with a new initiative.
The website Lean On Me uses smart technology and a simple idea. But it relies on everyone else to come on board to work really well. They want to connect up every person who feels that they can share even small amounts of cash now with their favourite business to that business. By paying now for a voucher to be used in the future the business gets immediate cash to pay for the bills which keep arriving in the post while their income has disappeared. Together we are stronger. They rely on these businesses in good times. We are asking them to lean on us now to get through this difficult time.
