Thanks for Helping America's Businesses!

December, 2020, was our FIRST attempt to promote December as National Small Business Month. Traditionally, we have been promoting National Small Business Weekend, the FIRST weekend of every month. However, with so many people celebrating Christmas and special gift giving events during the Month of December, we agreed to designate December as a month long effort to promote America’s small businesses.

Last week, a high school student and his dad asked me if I felt that we lived in China or another foreign country. I said no, we’re proudly living in America. They replied that the labels on the majority of items available in most of America’s stores indicate that foreign suppliers now overwhelm America’s stores and that foreign suppliers represent a large portion of the products sold in America’s stores.

It is always great to hear from people looking more closely at the labels on the items available to them. It was especially good that a dad was concerned about the future employment opportunities for his son and family. As you’re out shopping during the Christmas season, look closely at labels because America’s young people need jobs and careers, and there is NO REASON for them NOT to have at least a 50/50 balance of every product they are seeking to purchase with a made in the U.S.A. label.

Kindly spread this information to your family and friends and thanks for your participation. You can email your comments and suggestions to

To help promote our December campaign, there is a POSTER on the front page of  The POSTER can be printed out and displayed by Small Businesses to let customers know they Welcome Your Business and that they are Supporters of National Small Business Month.
