National Made In America Month – December

National Made In America Month – DecemberNational Made in America Month

Subhead: December is not all about hot cocoa, holiday festivities and gift giving. This month takes credit to many awareness events like the National Made in America Month that not many people are aware of.

Information: By purchasing American-made items this holiday season (and year-round,) you’re supporting the American economy and those who work in this country as well as showing your national pride. National Made in America Month was started in 1985 by then President, Ronald Reagan. This is a great time to celebrate and recognize the excellence of American-made products and supporting businesses who don’t outsource their labor to other countries. This is a great opportunity for business owners to help spread the word about this event.

A recent study by the National Retail Federation revealed that the average American will spend $700 on holiday purchases this year for a total of $465 billion. If that money was spent entirely on U.S.- made products it would create 4.6 million jobs!

Womens Voices Magazine has shown support for the event as well as other numerous businesses and groups. Why not join them in spreading awareness of National Made in America Month and using the time to promote your business as well.

 

Useful For: Businesses that don’t outsource their labor to other countries as well as those who want to support the American economy by buying American-made products.

Outcome: Heightened awareness about those that don’t send their labor out of the country to save money and why buying American-made products are important.

Promotional Ideas:

  • Say Thanks. Write a nice thank you letter to a business who keeps their labor in the U.S. Start by saying how you appreciate what they’re doing for the national economy.
  • Promote Your Products. Are your products made in the U.S.? Hold a special event to showcase your inventory for sale and highlight that they’re made nationally.
  • Spread Awareness. Host an event or dinner that discusses how important nationally made products are for the United States and how buying them can help the national economy.

Bottom Tag: It doesn’t have to be July to be patriotic. Show your pride by supporting jobs in America by buying things that are made in the United States.
