John Ratzenberger’s American Made – FundAnything

John Ratzenberger’s American Made – FundAnything. “American Made” is a fantastic new crowd-sourcing project. This project would produce a television show that highlights “Made in America” items. For us bloggers who write about Made in America items – this is the mother ship come home.

The plan is to raise $500,000 over 45 days. The show will be hosted by Jon Ratzenberger, best known as Cliff, the mailman on the TV show Cheers. For those of you who didn’t know, a similar show called “Made in America” first premiered on the Travel Channel back in 2003 with John Ratzenberger hosting. It went for 5 seasons and 90 episodes, ending in 2008. However, many of those companies may no longer make things in the USA anymore due to outsourcing and people back then were a little apathetic about U.S. made products. However, it is a new era. I believe the United States population has turned a corner, and since the Great Recession, people have come to the realization that “Made in America” means better quality, increased manufacturing jobs, and a better economy for the entire United States population. For every new manufacturing job another 2.5 up to 5 other jobs are created, depending on your reference.

Don’t forget about the other bloggers who write about Made in America products, let them know what is going on. See my link of Best Made in USA Websites, and my More Best of Made in USA Websites. As of December 8, 2013, American Made – Fund Anything has over $100,000 pledged.
