TAP America Opens Its Doors To Promote Tolerance, Americanism & Patriotism
Non-Profit Aims to Unify America Through Education, Leadership & Social Research
Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) January 18, 2011
TAP America, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening America and its citizens, today announced the official launch of the organization. TAP America is an acronym for Tolerance, Americanism, and Patriotism and its inception comes at a time when many Americans are faced with political and economic uncertainty. As a non-political organization, TAP America embodies what it means to be American by encouraging people to be physically active, embrace equality, and support the American economy by purchasing products made in America.
Getting Americans Back to Work
According to a recent survey released by Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute, Americans view manufacturing as the most important industry for a strong national economy. In addition 81% of Americans believe manufacturing industries have a significant impact on their standard of living and 68% of Americans are convinced that manufacturing industries impact national security.
“TAP America believes that the only way to help stimulate our economy is to buy goods and services made in America to keep the jobs we have and to create new ones for the over 14.8 Million unemployed in our country,” said Mark Bloome, Founder of TAP America. “We need to stop the rapid decline of the American economy by reclaiming jobs sent overseas to countries like China and India. The jobs and country we save will be our own.”
Let’s Get Moving
Physical fitness is critical to keeping Americans healthy and our country strong. According to the latest Pentagon research, 35 percent of the 31.2 million Americans aged 17 to 24 are unqualified for military service because of physical and medical issues. Childhood obesity is at an all-time high with the CDC reporting that 23% of individuals within this age group are considered obese. In response to these statistics, TAP America encourages Americans to take the first step by turning off the television or computer and dedicating at least five minutes a day to exercise and physical activity. Founder Mark Bloome asks that we honor the sacrifice of our troops past and present through dedicating just five minutes a day to make our citizens stronger.
“All it takes to be healthy is breaking out of our daily routines and getting off the couch to take a five minute stroll around the block,” said Stephanie Adams, COO of TAP America. “We have videos on our website for simple exercises that you can do right in your own living room or at your cubicle. Physical activity of any sort will help create stronger Americans and keep us healthy. Get up and let’s get moving for America.”
We Are All Americans
America was founded on the ideals of tolerance, patriotism and embracing all individuals. As a country, the United States is comprised of people from countries around the world with 37.7 percent immigrating from Central America, 25.4 percent from Asia and 13.6 percent from Europe. In order to build a united and strong country, TAP America asks all Americans to practice at least one act of tolerance per week in order to learn more about each other.
“TAP America has been tasked with reigniting America as the beacon of hope for the rest the world,” said Richard L. Tso, Executive Director at TAP America. “We at TAP believe it is the differences between Americans that make our country so unique and powerful. Once we look past these differences we realize that we are more similar than we are different ““ we are all Americans.”
