Occasionally you stumble across a beautiful business idea. I unearthed one this week.

Sydney Cashmobs.

You can find out more about it on Twitter @SydneyCashMobs or Facebook http://facebook.com/sydneycashmobs .

Or you can join the originators in Cleveland Ohio: http://cashmobs.wordpress.com

Their claim is, “Similar to flash mobs, Cash Mobs organize customers to spend money at locally owned businesses to support their community.”

Once a month they announce a secret small business location and then descend upon it, with cash in hand, to give a little bit of a boost to that business.

A simple idea based on the concept of giving (and having some fun along the way).

The first “mob” is at 4pm Saturday 24 March, 2012 (which by the way coincides with International Cash Mob Day!)

The location is revealed the day before, so be sure to follow them to find out where it will be!

Join the movement and nominate a business that needs a boost.
