34 Local Businesses to Support in Frisco During Coronavirus — Me Ra Koh Portraits
You Win All the Way Around
Brian and I have been praying for ways to help local small businesses in Frisco, Texas. We’re one of them, and all of us are feeling the hit. Our friend in DC had this idea, and we LOVE it! We will match your support 10xs when you buy from one of these 34 local businesses and causes to support in Frisco during Coronavirus with a Me Ra Koh Portrait Luxury Gift Certificate up to $250.
You Don’t have to Live Local to Play
Over the last 18 years, we’ve been blessed to build an awesome following and newsletter readership. Introducing you to these wonderful Frisco, Texas small businesses and causes is one way we can help! Many of them are brick and mortar and have had to close their doors. But they all offer products or services online! Whether it’s an online makeup tutorial for your daughter with Ginger (our very own studio Makeup & Hair Artist) or it’s a piece of beautiful jewelry for Mother’s Day from Sally, they can reach you.
How it Works
When you purchase a product, gift certificate or donate to one of these 34 local businesses to support in Frisco, we will match what you spend 10X up to $250 to put towards your future portrait session and wall art. For example, if you spend $20 email us the receipt, we will give you a $200 Luxury Gift Certificate towards your future photographic experience and wall art.
Choose from 34 Local Businesses to Support in Frisco;
I hope you enjoy browsing through these fun categories and shopping local! Share this post on your social media channels to help these businesses and causes as much as possible. When you see an * at the end that means I’ve either been a customer or know the owners personally and vouch for them. There are some new ones on the list that I’m excited to connect with more. (I may have counted wrong on how many local businesses to support in Frisco because I kept adding each day. But you get it.)
I’m so thankful for community. Despite what all our businesses are going through, we can help each other. Our local portrait studio is new to Frisco. When we first launched Brian and I didn’t know any other local business owners. Now I look at all these wonderful businesses below, and I’m deeply thankful for each one. It’s a honor to support these 34 local businesses, especially when you know the owners have hearts of gold! Thank you for supporting all of us with your shopping!
