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.)
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.

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.
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:
Today close to 50 people, mostly Free Staters, came together for the voluntaryist charity Shire Sharing. Shire Sharing was created by now NH State Representative Amanda Bouldin in dedication to her father. The goal of the charity this year is to feed up to 500 families in need this Thanksgiving in the Shire. Today was the assembly phase where activists put together bags of food for families. Tomorrow is the deliver day where all the bags created will be delivered to different families through out the Manchester area. I will be there to help deliver and to document deliveries. I have also been posting photos of the charity in action which can be found on my instagram account.
Here’s the feature story about Amanda and her growing charity that plans to feed 500 families this Thanksgiving – feel free to share it!
