Susan the Bruce Needs Help Recovering From Car Accident

Susan the Bruce

Susan the Bruce

I just donated $25 to Susan the Bruce‘s recovery fund. Despite her anger and vitriol toward the Free State Project and Free Keene, she doesn’t deserve being broadsided in her car.

Hopefully someday she’ll see the hypocrisy in her support of the state while at the same time claiming to be for peace. (She’s a board member at NH Peace Action.)

Please join with me and State Representative Cynthia Chase in stepping up to help Susan with her $10,000 fundraiser.

Excellent Video Overview of Shire Sharing 2014

In this excellent new video about Shire Sharing posted to the 101 Reasons youtube channel, several participants are interviewed from Shire Sharing and foundress Amanda Bouldin discusses the impact of the successful charity and its future.

If you’re looking for the strongest community of liberty-loving people, you need to get to New Hampshire. We’ve got an amazing community here and it just keeps getting better as more Free State Project participants move in and bring their unique talents to the market and the activism world.

Shire Sharing Day 2

On Sunday November 24, 2014 I had the honor to join Amanda Bouldin’s Shire Sharing in their delivery of food to families in need for this Thanksgiving. Shire Sharing delivered Thanksgiving meals to over 300 families in New Hampshire. Most deliveries were conducted by activists using their own vehicles to routes around the greater Manchester area. A bus and trailer were used to deliver food to concentrated areas such as apartment complexes. Around 10 am, activists who were mostly Free Staters piled into a bus and spent the next few hours delivering food. The playlist above is what I documented on Shire Sharing’s noble journey. I also posted photos of the charity in action which can be found on my instagram account.

Shire Sharing Distributes Thanksgiving Dinners to Over 330 NH Households

Shire Sharing Foundress Amanda Bouldin and Chris Lopez help facilitate today’s deliveries.

Now in its fourth year, the charity created by Free State Project early mover Amanda Bouldin, Shire Sharing, has this year alone provided Thanksgiving dinner for over 330 families across New Hampshire!

Of those 330+ meals, the newly-formed Shire Sharing Keene presided over the delivery of nearly two dozen bags of food and turkeys across the Monadnock region. Outside of the Monadnock region, hundreds of families received the meals, in an amazing fourth-year effort. Though the main Shire Sharing organization made its fundraising goal of feeding 500 families, sadly one of the agencies from which family addresses were supplied apparently dropped the ball, leaving extra funds and supplies.  Amanda says Shire Sharing will be distributing those extra supplies to Liberty House homeless shelter in Manchester.

Yesterday, Free Keene blogger Rob Mathias documented the massive bag-assembly process that happened in Manchester.

Free Keene’s Darryl W. Perry released this video today which complied some scenes from the Keene-area bag assembly and the subsequent deliveries to happy recipients:
