Made In America Christmas

According to ABC News, the average American will spend $704 on holiday gifts this year, totaling more than $465 billion. 
Can you imagine If that money was spent entirely on US made products it would create over 4 million jobs!!!  But it doesn't even have to be that big. If each of us spent just $64 on American made goods during our holiday shopping, the result would be 200,000 new jobs.

Now I want to know, are you in? 

If so, I want to hear from you. 

How are you planning on spending your $64?

What Made in America products have you bought and where did you buy them?

Lets buy American this holiday season!  

Why not encourage your family, friends, neighbors, book club or church group to spend $64 on Made in America products this holiday season?

Lets inspire others in our communities to do the same.

3 pretty purplexing comments:

  1. I love it! I'm going with homemade foods for many of my gifts. Those counts as Made in America, right? We also have an awesome store near us that is ALL made in the USA.

  2. I think anything homemade counts as Made in America... are the ingredients from America?? ;-)
    What is the store near you? If they have a website, I'd be glad to post it!

  3. We have a Made in America store and it's ridiculously expensive and most of the products there are apparel that say Made in America. I try to do my best but lets face it everything is made else where.
