A Revolution In Caring - The Birth of a New Tradition

My sister sent me this email, and I thought it was stimulating enough to pass along to you. It is from an anonymous author, so I cannot site who originally wrote it, but feel free to pass this along:

Christmas is no longer about draining our American pockets for Chinese imports. Christmas is now caring about the US and encouraging more American small businesses to keep plugging away at their dreams. When we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we can't imagine. THIS is the new American Christmas tradition.

Forward this to everyone on your mailing list -- post it to discussion groups -- throw a post on Craigslist in the Rants and Raves section in your city -- send it to the editor of your local paper, radio stations, and TV news departments. This is a revolution in caring about each other, and isn't that what Christmas is about?

As the holidays approach, giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with atrocious piles of produced goods - merchandise produced at the expense of American labor. This year can be different. This year Americans can give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes, there can!

It's time to think outside of the box. Who says a gift needs to fit into a shirt box wrapped in Chinese wrapping paper, topped with a ribbon made in China? Here are some American gift examples:

1. EVERYONE gets his or her hair cut. How about giving gift certificates from your local hair salon or barber?

2. Gym memberships? It's a fitting gift for all ages thinking about health improvement.

3. Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed? Small American owned detail shops and car washes love to sell gift certificates or coupon books.

4. Are you one of those extravagant givers who purchases flat-screen televisions made in China as gifts? Perhaps instead, your loved-one might like their driveway sealed, or their lawn mowed for the entire summer.

5. Maybe give a gift of getting the driveway plowed all winter, or game coupons at the local golf course.

6. There are bazillion owner-run restaurants offering gift certificates. If your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about gifting a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint?

This "revolution" isn't about promoting big national or foreign chains - it's about supporting your local hometown, American businesses to help keep their doors open.

Try these as gifts:

1. How many people could use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle?

2. Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day or two.

3. Anyone's computer could use a tune-up, so support local repair businesses.

4. Looking for a more personal gift? Many locals spin their own wool and knit beautiful scarves. Local craftsmen make jewelry, pottery, and beautiful wooden items.

5. Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip.

6. Go see a play or the ballet at your hometown theater.

7. Find a venue showcasing local bands.

8. Leave the mailman, your trash guy, or babysitter a nice BIG tip this year instead of giving your money to large store chains.

Let's start a new revolution of caring and witness the birth of a new tradition in America. Let's keep our money local, simple, and loving!

Happy Holidays, one and all!
