Today is a BIG day!!

There is a stupid worldwide movement trending right now to boycott Israeli-made products, I guess to weaken Israel's economy and destroy it that way.

Um - ok.  I guess those people can stop using Google search, online chat, cell phones, mammograms, voice mail, thumb drives (USB flash), oh - and they can stop eating cherry tomatoes because all those things have their origins in Israel.  (Who knew?  Check out here and here.)

So while they're busy doing that - what we need to do is go BIG!!  BUY ISRAELI GOODS!!

Today - March 30 - go out to your local stores and buy Israeli goods.  Find the store manager - thank them personally for carrying those products and that you appreciate them not capitulating to the idiots out there.

Here are some ideas for local goods:
  • Yes To products (beauty, skincare) - found at Walgreens
  • Gottex (swimwear) - Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, Dillard's, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom
  • Victoria's Secret (lingerie) - lots of their products are manufactured in Israel - who knew?
  • Keter (home storage, hardware) - Home Depot, Costco (I saw it there a few weeks ago)
  • AHAVA & Mineral Care (Dead Sea skincare) - Marshall's, Sears, Sephora
  • Wine - Beldens, Kroger, maybe Spec's
  • Food - Costco (Israeli Feta), Beldens, HEB, Kroger, Randalls - this should be an easy one
This is just a beginner's list.  Check out the BIG website - even though Houston isn't listed, you can click through the categories for the other cities/regions and look at Israeli brands that are sold in the chain stores we all have.
