We are a Non-for-Profit Organization with citizens on a mission to build jobs in America, through fundraising with American made products, services, awareness campaigns and donations. We wish to encourage others in the market of fundraising to promote and sell more American made products, be creatively inspired and realize through promoting newer and preexisting products, generated right here in The United States, we will build and stabilize jobs in America. Below you will find a list of what we have been doing, as well as, a list of company websites to help you in your search for American Products you can utilize in your fundraising efforts.
In 2011, The National Retail Federation estimated “The average American will spend $700 on holiday gifts and goodies this year, totaling more than $465 billion”. ABC’s World News by Diane Sawyer reported “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.”
The necessary change we need to make is our mindset; every purchase will secure and build jobs. Where are you building?
Many organizations have the ability to purchase in high volume and store products as fundraising brokers. As an individual, I requested one broker to purchase and make more American products available for fundraising and they said it is not beneficial for their bottom line.
Our bottom line is unemployment. Through fundraising of American products and donations we will feed the demand of the American products to those who are interested to build and stabilize jobs in America and in turn, feed organizations whose missions benefit the communities where we live and work.
Throughout the year 2013, A DAY TO MARKET AMERICA is raising funds for Habitat for Humanity and a variety causes, through the sales of American made products, educational seminars and awareness campaigns.
We invite you to participate in our mission and join our campaign or help us increase our purchasing power to feed the demand of the American products and services and together, we will raise money for a variety of causes and build jobs right here at home. As Americans, I believe we need to make an oath to ourselves, to invest in America buy American made products and services. Teach our children how we will build jobs. Change their mindset. It's not just another fundraiser.
