“Buy American” is often no more than a talking point, but this company really emphasizes American products – and does it for a good cause.

Thomas Carey from Minuteman Watches joined “The Morning Blaze” crew Wednesday to talk about his watch brand, which was designed to raise funds for charities that help veterans and their families as well as other important causes. A certain amount from the price of each watch goes to charity, depending on the particular watch model.

Minuteman Watches, which is based in Illinois, employs Americans, uses American components when possible and assembles its products in the U.S., Carey asserted. Carey's retail site, The CGA Company, is also working with dealer Lum-Tec to raise money for another good cause: helping Operation Underground Railroad rescue kids from sex trafficking worldwide.

Carey decided to start the company because he wanted to raise money to help veterans and donate to other causes, but he didn’t want to found a new charity when there were already so many valuable organizations that needed funding, he explained.

To see more from Doc, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” weekdays 6–9 a.m. ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly identified Lum-Tec. The company is an independent entity that uses The CGA Company as a dealer.
