Helping with a community LIFELINE
Many of our local restaurants are on the brink of collapse threatening not only the owner's equity but a major part of our region’s labor base is connected to the hospitality industry.
This is our opportunity to help!
Bloom, a Wilmington-based company, partnered with US Foods and The Wilmington Business Journal, has created a community campaign that hopefully, with individual and corporate support, will deliver a significant financial contribution to these establishments. The contribution will be divided equally among all participating restaurants. Additionally, the campaign will drive community awareness and deliver new business to many of these establishments over the next 12 months.
We are asking individuals to contribute a minimum of $20 but hope corporations provide support by purchasing in bulk (see below) and giving the one year VIP Bonus Rewards Membership to their employees as a perk.
Participating restaurants are providing a range of discounts for those who support The Greater Wilmington Restaurant Revival all to be available on Bloom’s app-friendly vipbonusrewards.com platform.
Included with the Bloom VIP Bonus rewards are thousands of additional national discounts in 10 retail categories. So the deals travel with you and finally it provides access to Bloom’s national wholesale travel rates that include a $100 Travel Credit to use at over 1,000,000 hotels and resorts.
We want to encourage corporate participation hoping they might gift memberships to employees, we are offering the following:
10 to 24 one year memberships - $18 each
25 to 49 memberships - $15 each
50 or more memberships - $10 each
Employee membership distribution and activation are simple. We provide you with a membership card to distribute to your employees with instructions on downloading Bloom’s “My Deals app”. Each card includes an activation code.

Frequently Asked Questions
What defines Online Fundraising - (Crowdfunding)
Crowdfunding harnesses the power of email and social media so that you can raise money for a cause. The “cause” simply asks supporters to make online donations directly to a customized online platform.
How is Bloom’s Restaurant Revival Campaign different from Crowdfunding?
Please consider giving back to our local restaurants thorough this online campaign. We are giving back a significant gift of a discount to each restaurant plus a one year digital discount membership providing a range of valuable savings to restaurants,retailers (10 categories) hotels and resorts.
Why should I donate?
This is an odd time for the restaurant business and we have the opportunity to help. Many small local businesses have been forced to close down due to the pandemic and not being able to sustain their revenue. This is a great way to help keep the restaurants open, staff employeed and give back all at the same time.
