Happy Monday! I want to start this week by taking a moment just to say hello to the readers and fans of USA Love List. Some of you have been with us since we launched in November of 2011. Others may have just joined us this week when you heard about our biggest giveaway ever with Blendtec. What we all have in common is an interest in finding, sharing, and buying the very best products made in America today.
I can't tell you how much I enjoy hearing from you about how excited you were to find USA Love List or how you have started reading labels more since following us on Facebook or how your six year old realized his favorite toy was made in China and said, “That ticks me off!” (Hahaha… true story!)
All of us involved in USA Love List came together to take action in our own small ways to make a difference, to support the companies working to keep their manufacturing at home, to make it easier for Americans to support their cities and towns by buying American. This is a group effort and if buying American is important to you, here are some big and small ways to get involved.
