I need help from Freepers on finding a charity (Pledge of Allegiance)
Posted on 06/27/2002 10:25:39 AM PDT by jcsmonogram
I need help from you guys in finding a charity. I'm selling Pledge of Allegiance "UNDER GOD" T-shirts, and they're going like wildfire.
I want to give part of the money received to a charity that is relevant to this issue.
Right now, all I can think of is the Salvation Army and various church groups. If the Freeper community can think of a better idea, please let me know. This will be a substantial sum of money, based on early sales.
TOPICS: Activism/Chapters; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: christianity; god; pledgeofallegiance; tshirt
Pacific Legal Foundation, Heritage Foundation, Landmark Legal come to mind. They're the ones fighting the madness in the courts where the left has taken much of the battle. And God Bless you for your efforts. ;^)

Christian Legal Society
Concerned Women for America
National Right To Work Foundation
Focus On The Family
Susan B. Anthony List
Alliance Defense Fund
Citizens Against Government Waste
How's that for a start?
Salvation Army is a great choice. The successes that they have had in meeting the needs of "needy" people is wonderful.
Where the Red Cross sends a bill for everything that they distribute during a disaster, the Salvation Army has never sent a bill to anyone.
They have homes for battered women, ranches for recovering alcoholic men, a Center for Youth in south sentral LA that can accomodate 7000 kids a day, 70% return rate when looking for runaway kids...etc
They are the best!
How about the Boy Scouts?
To: old school
Just like the Boy Scouts, the Salvation Army is under attack by homosexual activists. I would choose both of them, and tell them why.

How about " The Delbert Home Mortgage Payment Charity Fund"

We have always supported the Boy Scouts. But I had never given any money to the Salvation Army until last Christmas. When I read about the homosexuals targeting them, I put a substantial donation in an envelope, with a note explaining that I had never given before, but I admired their courage in sticking to their principles and would continue to give as long as they stood firm. Then I dropped the envelope in one of their kettles.
Might I suggest the Family Research Council (found at http://www.frc.org)?
The actually take these battles into court and file amicus briefs and friends of the court briefs on most everything that affects Christians, families and children. - they are also non-denominational.
the Case of the Freeper FRiva Feva is under scrutiny - super-sleuths are welcomed
come resolve the way to yesterday's Target Post, you're not out of the running yet
win your registration fees to the FRive Las Vegas Conference if you dare
Thanks to all!
All great ideas. I'll check out the new suggestions and post who we'll give the money to. Maybe we'll pool the money and make multiple donations.
I'm still open to others good recipients, if anyone hasn't posted yet, but these are great suggestions.
The only charity I give to.
You might consider FreeRepublic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good thinking. Something that's right in front of my face.
It's not tax deductable but a more worthy cause cannot be found.
