Why should I stay in California for my next vacation?
First: Because you are lucky to live in California, the most fantastic state in the United States! Second: Because by staying here, you are having a direct impact on the economy by saving jobs and restoring the economic impact felt by the entire industry in the wake of the disastrous COVID-19 crisis.
Will it really save jobs?
YES, it will! Based on a 2018 study, for every dollar spent in small businesses, 67 cents stay in the community. So, every time you purchase something, remember that 67% have a direct impact on the local community. Rad, isn’t it?!
What impact will it have?
“A simple action multiplied by a million can change the world” – – The more we are to pledge, the greater the impact we will have. That’s why we need YOU to spread the word to reach our goal of 100,000 pledges! By sharing The Pledge with your friends, family, and followers on social media or by wearing one of our super cool pieces of swag, you are actively helping to revitalize our industry. We can’t do it without you, and we appreciate your help!
What is #IStayInCalifornia?
I Stay in California is an independent initiative designed to raise awareness and inspire action to support, save, and revitalize our small businesses and the tourism industry as a whole.
Who’s behind #IStayInCalifornia?
“I Stay in California™” and “Rediscover California™” were created by iD MKG LLC, a small local advertising agency in sunny San Diego. Founded in 2019 by avid travelers and entrepreneurs Timothy & Christel Schillige, iD MKG LLC is specializes in the development of concepts and strategies for small businesses in the tourism, sports, and entertainment industry. “I Stay in California™” and “Rediscover California™” are not affiliated to any official authority, association, or political group.
Why do I have to pay for a campaign support kit?
Because #IStayInCalifornia is an independent initiative and purchasing a campaign support kit is a simple and direct way to fund a successful campaign, raise awareness, and have a real impact. As we are a (very) small business, we simply, can’t afford to give them away for free. That’s why we NEED YOUR HELP and why we REALLY appreciate your support!
I want to do more! What can I do?

You can like, share, and comment on our social media posts, invite your friends to follow us, and talk about the campaign every time you can.
