Lifesaver Stories

“I've been trying to wean myself off of online retailers... And by online retailers, I mean Amazon. I recently moved and Lifesaver was able to help me find new small business spots I love...for food and for retail.”

- Alex E.

“If I was searching for something, like a local business on Google Maps....there was no real way for me to know if it was new or not, if it was truly local business or something I had never heard of before. And none of the online systems tell you much if anything about the social impact a business has and if they share similar beliefs.”

- Nick H.

“If I'm choosing between two small businesses, they both have good reviews, and one of them I know is founded by a woman, I'm going to go there. But until Lifesaver there was no easy way of knowing for sure…”

- Kate R.

“Now with Lifesaver, you get to learn a little bit more about buying local, and that goes straight into people that you care about, to your community. And it's good to be more aware of where your money goes. I'm excited to see how my impact builds over time with the app.”

- Jannea L.
