Cash mob rules for coordinator
1). The mob date must be announced at least a week in advance via Twitter. (Follow CMdtblacksburg for our Tweets!)
2). The location at which to meet will be announced, but not the specific business to support until the Mob meets at the arranged time and location.
3). The business owner must give back to the community in some way. (All merchant members of DBI regularly give back to our community through donations of time, goods and money to many causes.)
4) The cash mob will occur during the evening on a weekday or on a weekend.
