It's been so cool to have such an impact, to have literally the whole community backing us and saying, "Hey, we were all involved in putting this together."

Loyalty Bonds were exactly what my business needed. As a business that relies heavily on customer relationships, giving my customers a way to simultaneously support us during the shutdown and get a great deal on our products is a win-win for both of us.
