BOBBIE US, INC. a/k/a Black Owned Businesses: Building Integrity & Ethics (D.B.A. BOBBIEDOTBIZ) is a registered nonprofit organization. Our application for tax-exemption has been filed and our 501c3 tax-exempt status is currently "pending."
BobbieDotBiz, a modern day “bible of black businesses”, is a nonprofit organization (501c3) of compiled information that will keep us from wondering where the black owned businesses are located in the United States. BobbieDotBiz assists people in finding ALL CATEGORIES OF BUSINESSES that would serve their direct needs.
Since the fall of Black Wall Street in 1921, there seemed to be a continued struggle within the black community to rebuild –as a unit. Various weapons were, and are still, formed against us, and most of them prospered. However, the one thing these weapons were NEVER able to conquer was our dignity. As we search for more answers to the questions we constantly ask, we get more and more tired.
BobbieDotBiz’s founder, Natasha Zamor, constantly thought of a way to help revive black wall street once and for all. She wondered how O.W. Gurley (pictured) was able to blossom that town in Tulsa, Oklahoma. His vision resulted in prosperity, and it only worked because everyone directly pooled their resources in the name of solidarity. Why can’t we do that again? Why can’t we have one source of the information and protect it?
Given the continued climate of our nation, we need to come together to further build our national community in a positive way and have a place to find each other. BobbieDotBiz builds strong support and does it with Integrity and Ethics in mind.
Think of “BOBBIE” as the person in the neighborhood that knows everyone and initiates the first line of communication between you and black owned businesses.
Welcome BOBBIE to the neighborhood and say “whaddup fam”!
Mission: We are the national directory of black owned businesses for customers to easily find, by location, and support those businesses to satisfy their direct needs.
Funds to be used as follows:
1) Expenses to maintain and operate www.bobbie.biz (national directory) and BOBBIE DOT BIZ, INC.
2) Continued collective community give back initiative (through continued donations) to assist Bobbie's black followers by paying their highest monthly bill (first come first served). As a result, encouraging those recipients to save for an upgrade on their personal long term investments/assets and/or invest back in to a black owned business easily found through the national directory (#bobbiepaidmybill).
This human to human support will revitalize O.W. Gurley's vision of united black prosperity and further resilience by pooling our resources (starting w/ $1) for success. (O.W. Gurley [our logo] was the founder of 1906-1921's 'Black Wall Street' on Greenwood Ave. in Tulsa, OK)
This is O.W.'s vision 2.0!
Thank you in advance for spreading the word, donating (at least $1) to vision 2.0, and even further helping your black neighbor get over the hump a little bit easier.
I sincerely love you all!
