Let's Grow Black Businesses in Iowa

44771400_1579102514312811_r.jpegI Heart Black Business is a small group of people committed to growing support for black-owned businesses. This April, we will throwing an event in Iowa to award hard-working black entrepreneurs and allow the community to shop black businesses via vendors. The $10,000 will help us cover the cost of lighting, videography, trophies, food, hotels (for special guests traveling in), and event signage.

With your help, we can shine a light on an underrepresented group that rarely receives support from its own community. I Heart Black Business is so grateful for your gift and selfless support! Every amount helps a small black-owned business grow. Thank you!
