Made in America

A few days ago I was watching Good Morning America and I was shocked to find out how buying American made gifts could make such a difference in creating jobs here 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. "

Go here if you want to see a huge list of places to buy American made products and I would also suggest http://www.etsy.com/  to find tons of great gifts that are not only American made but also home made!

Spread the word and hopefully it will make a difference!
