Only a Few Days Left to Support MadeInAmerica.org in 2021!
We are counting down the days until we once again close one chapter and begin a new one. Before we say goodbye to 2021, I ask that you consider a contribution to MadeInAmerica.org.
New Year’s is a great time to assess where we’ve been and where we’re heading. One thing these past couple of years have shown is that once again, when we face a crisis, Americans are resilient and always willing to help a neighbor or stranger in need.
Unfortunately, we also learned that we are far too dependent on a global economy and the whims of national and international leaders. Not only did “supply chain disruption” become a household word in the last year, but we also discovered that critical supplies like food and medicines come from overseas and can be held-up in California ports.
2021 was an exciting year for MadeInAmerica.org however. We officially launched the organization in October when I came aboard as Executive Director and had our first Board meeting at the end that month. We have our team and systems in place, 2022 looks like a very promising year.
Our New Year’s resolution for 2022 is to educate Americans that they have the “power of change” in their pockets,” and they should keep their dollars here in the United States. By buying American products made by American manufacturing, we will avoid succumbing to the economic disruptions of a world economy that we’ve faced in the recent months. We will also increase the number and quality of jobs and keep more dollars in America.
We are poised to begin 2022 to reach our goal by undertaking in earnest the projects and proposals contained in our strategic plan, which include:.
Consumer Education Through Advertising
- National multi-media buy (TV & print)
- Exposure on external billboard
Consumer education through media engagement & promotion
- National & local media coverage with interviews and guest spots
- Social media marketing focused on Facebook and Twitter
- Direct consumer email
- Podcast Featuring “America Made Business Stories”
- In years 2 & 3, we will diversify our strategy for reaching different demographics.
Educational events & workshops
- Target manufacturing groups and chambers of commerce.
The ancient phrase, “This too shall pass,” comes to mind when considering 2020 and 2021. They were difficult and trying times for Americans and people around the world. And now it’s behind us.
Henry Ford also said, “Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” 2020 and 2021 showed us the errors of a global economic system.
So now it’s time to learn from the experience and begin again…smarter. It’s not a new approach, rather it’s returning to a time when products were made, shipped, and purchased locally. American manufacturers produce the finest products in the world, and there is no reason to look anywhere else.
So please join me in our effort to educate American consumers about the need to keep their dollars in the United States. Your contribution today will greatly help us in this effort. We also ask that you take our pledge to buy American products whenever possible.
My God Bless you and your families in 2022.
