Buy Armenian™ was a serendipitous idea by Admin Lilit Odabashian who launched the business just after the war started in Artsakh on September 27, 2020. Wanting to connect with other Armenians to exchange information about businesses that sell Armenian products, she created the “Buy Armenian™” Facebook group page that now has over 33,000 followers.
While the war intensified so did the boycott for Turkish products as Armenians witnessed a second Genocide attempt by Turkish forces assisting Azerbaijan. It was a timely moment for Buy Armenian™ to meet the needs of a demanding market.
The Facebook group grew overnight and as it gained popularity so too did the website www.BuyArmenian.com.
Buy Armenian™ began inviting Armenian business owners from the Diaspora to join and feature their businesses on the website as long as they would donate part of their sales proceeds to Armenia through an approved fundraising platform like Armenia Fund, PAROS Foundation, ONEArmenia, Wounded Heroes of Armenia, and Focus on the Children Now.
Buy Armenian™ also became the forum where local organizations and individual fundraisers throughout the world could advertise their events and donate part or all of their proceeds to one of the above organizations. More recently, a classifieds listing section was added to the website for public use.
