After reading the thread on the "lowly" $2 bill, how 'bouts organizing
a $2 bill day.  Spend then anywhere and everywhere - perhaps on 2/2?  
I remember some group doing it years back to show the purchasing power
of said group.  Only ones I saw around that time were at a race track
:0)

OZ, who uses them now and then at poker games.   You want that $2 bill
bud - call or raise me.  Too bad I lose most of the hands D'OH.

The group that used them (and may still use them) was an African-American group that used
SBA dollars and Two Dollar Bills during a month (June?) to show economic power.

I use them day-in and day-out for ALL of my cash purchases. I even go out of my way to use
cash instead of debit cards or credit cards so that I can spend more Golden Dollars and
Twos.

been spending mine, the cashier puts them underneath the cash tray, so
they just wind up back at the bank, instead of change to someone.
