Be A Local Hero (Online)

Social media users love to tell their friends about what they're doing. 

It's really the point, after all--to keep up with your social network. 

So why not rack up some points for what you've been doing, if it benefits your community? 

That's the point behind "Be A Local Hero," a website started by Ashlander and Project A President Jim Teece. 

The site--and a pending app--allow users to score points for shopping locally, volunteering their time, and other activities. 

Jim Teece joins us with the details.
