ABC's Diane Sawyer issues Made in USA Challenge on World News. I'm in, how about you?
This week on World News with Diane Sawyer, ABC issued a Made in U.S.A. Challenge. See it for yourself here. A truly ground-breaking project, ABC has challenged Americans to empty their homes of imported goods, and replace them solely with goods that are made in the U.S.A.
From curtains, to furniture, to lighting, there are numerous ways to buy American in your home and create jobs for Americans in the process. ABC has issued the challenge, but can it be done?
In the coming weeks, ABC is going to find a house, and conduct an extreme makeover using only American-made goods. First, let me say to all the readers out there, check this segment out, and please consider participating in this challenge. I know that I will. Even if you can’t replace all the things in your home, you can participate by replacing one or two things. If lots of us will do it, it could make a major difference.
If you decide to participate, please let me know what you are going to replace in the comments section. I’d love to hear what you are planning. I know what I’m replacing first – my ugly recliner. I’ve been wanting to replace it for a while, and now I’m finally going to do it.
ABC introduced an amazing statistic to highlight the importance of buying American. If every American spent an extra $3.33 on goods made in the U.S.A., it would create almost 10,000 new jobs in this country. That is precisely the job-creating power that we have as American consumers. We have the ability to create all the jobs we need in this country simply by changing our buying habits.
Don’t wait. Take the Buy American Challenge today.
Until next time, here’s to doing what we can to support our country by buying American.
