A few weeks ago, I was watching ABC nightly news with Diane Sawyer and she had a segment encouraging people to buy products Made in America. She proposed a challenge for people to buy at least one gift this season that is made in America.
“The average American will spend $700 on holiday gifts and goodies this year, totaling more than $465 billion, the National Retail Federation estimates. If that money was spent entirely on US made products it would create 4.6 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.”
I LOVE this! Supporting your local businesses and help create jobs here in America, who wouldn’t want to be involved? Need some help on gifts Made in America, no problem! Here is a list ABC is compiling.
Are you going to join in on the movement? What did you find that is Made in America?
