Our mission is to increase American manufacturing. We are doing this by raising awareness and providing options on where to go to buy American made goods, and by raising start-up money through crowd funding to build an e-commerce site dedicated solely to premium products made in the USA.
Many big name retail companies make billions selling goods made in foreign countries. Cheap labor and corporate greed have made it easy to forget about American values, and the impact has nearly eliminated production capabilities in the United States. Small businesses are trying to reverse that trend and there is a growing rally cry around purchasing goods made in the USA. To continue the momentum, your commitment to look for and purchase goods made in the United States is needed. We have made it easier to find American made products by compiling a list of companies and category descriptions in the American Made List.
In addition, we are asking for your support to fund a company dedicated to selling premium American Made merchandise. We have set up a banner page for companies to buy banner space to show they support manufacturing in the U.S.A., and we have set up a patriots page for individuals to make a contribution to support the cause. Companies with have a minimum of 10 years advertising with their banner. Individuals who choose to be listed will have their names listed on the patriots page for a minimum of 10 years, and be entitled to lifetime discounts as the company grows - a token of appreciation for taking a risk on a startup with a noble cause - to build the brands that are re-building America.
Be a part of internet history. If you missed your first chance, you have another - and supporting a cause.
It is getting really hard to buy American, that's because American manufacturing has declined so much, that even if when you have a goal of buying American made products, you don't know where to look. We've consolidated a list of American manufacturers by product category, so you have some options. You can also help us maintain this list by sending us recommendations if you know of a company that should be on this list.

Donate. Help your country. Get recongnized.
We'd like you to buy a banner, but realize that smaller contributions can have a big impact as well. For less than a cup of coffee, you can make a donation that will go toward making goods in America. If you choose, you can also get recognized for the contribution.
The patriot list is a recognition page for contributions made as part of a crowdfunding effort to start a company dedicated to selling premium American made products.
We've tagged China as Frienemies. Why? Because lately they have been trying to convince the world that they are capitalists, like everyone else, then they do something that should make you realize that is not the case - but it gets sugar coated by the government, and just isn't doing their job exposing the reality of what is happening. Don't believe me? Do an internet search on their latest victim, UBER. It is banned in China, but it just so happens that the government launched an app just like after the ban. The Chinese love the world's ideas, they just don't like the people who came up with them to take credit, or reap the benefits.
