Why Donate to The Liberty Fund? NEVER MIND

I will NOT Accept PayPal!

Nor am I asking for donations at this time.

Below you will see my earlier appeal for financial support. Today is October 9, 2022. Due to PayPal’s revised “user agreement” I hereby officially and unequivocally renounce any and all association with Paypal as well as any organization with direct ties to them.

Let it be publicly known I  do NOT accept Paypal’s “Terms of Service”. I do NOT accept their “Acceptable Use Policy“.  As of this writing, the link appears to lead to a blank pdf file.

According to a Fox News report :

However, when contacted by FOX Business, a PayPal spokesperson said that the Acceptable Use Policy notice went out in error and that the company will not fine users for misinformation.

An AUP notice recently went out in error that included incorrect information,” the spokesperson said. “PayPal is not fining people for misinformation and this language was never intended to be inserted in our policy.

In other words, Paypal has decided they will not, at this time, “fine” their users for what they deem to be “misinformation”. Ironically, Paypal just admitted to publishing misinformation.

In light of all of this, I’m done with Paypal. I’ve allowed myself to be associated with them even though I’ve ascertained they are less than honest and worse, they pander to the globalists. I don’t need them, really.  If I can no longer afford to keep this site up, I’ll simply shut it down. My two readers will need to find another way to cure their insomnia and the two feds who track this site will have to move on.

If, by chance someone out there would like to support my efforts financially, please contact me via email. Do note that I am NOT a “non-profit” organization under the law, though at this time I am not exactly a “profit” operation either. However should somebody actually send me some money, said funds would NOT be deductible as a “charity donation”, and I would be liable to pay any taxes due as income.

That is all.

Confession time: I absolutely hate asking for anything – especially donations. My number  one goal is to either take down any reference to donations entirely or dedicate this page to helping others in need.

Why donate? If you’ve been here before you may notice I modified it down to a very modest $1,000.Maybe your wondering why I’m asking for money at all?

First note The Liberty Coalition .org is NOT a non-profit organization despite the .org web address. I pay taxes on revenue – whether it is a “donation” or payment for products and/or services. Your “donation” is NOT tax deductible. If you own a business you can of course deduct the costs of any business-related products or services.

So why am I asking for money?

Please bear with me a moment to give you a peek into my life.

As of this writing – December 2019, I work full-time and commute 40 minutes each way. My workday is nine hours per day, Monday – Friday. This website was built in my “spare time”. I also have duties to my family as we maintain our house, raise chickens and goats . The goats are for milk. The chickens are for eggs. Both are for our personal use.

Financially we are debt-free. We own our house, our cars and pay off any credit card debt every month. The last time we were in debt was three years ago when we bought a “new” 2011 car for my commute to work. We paid that off within a year. My point here is we are financially responsible and always have been.

Starting in January 2020, I am going to transition to a four-day workweek so I can dedicate more time to promoting Liberty. This will mean an immediate 20% drop in income for us. Essentially I am “donating” 20% of my gross income for this project.

My wife is coming out of early retirement to help make ends meet. My daughter will donate some of her time to help reach the younger generation.

With all that, I’ll tell you straight out – we do not “need” $100,000 to get by. I wish. I arrived at this figure because I believe in setting high standards and high, but obtainable goals. Reaching this goal would not only mean I could promote liberty full-time but also cover anticipated expenses. What anticipated expenses? For one thing, given enough time and money, I’d like to attend more gun shows and other events to meet, greet other citizens and promote liberty. I’d like to be able to rent space and establish a “presence”.

So now you know the whys and the wherefores, there is one other thing you should know: I hope I never need reach that goal.

Like I said at the start, this is NOT a “non-profit” organization. My primary goal is to generate enough actual revenue to not need any donations. Should I accomplish this, my next thought is to establish a non-profit organization where I can help other patriot citizens in need. While I may still ask for donations for that cause, my plan is to donate a significant portion from earnings here.

That is the long and short of it. Thank you for sticking with me this long. Please consider helping me promote liberty by donating anything you can spare now.

Every dollar counts! If you can spare just $2, $5 or $10 – it means a lot to me. Two dollars may not mean much to you – it barely buys a cup of coffee these days but to me it is not just the money – it validates my efforts.

Please help!

God bless,

Andy Havens


P.S. For the life of me I cannot make that button shrink!

P.P.S.  Full disclosure here: The $37 you see is “seed money”. It is an arbitrary amount I put in there because few things are sadder than a perpetually empty tip jar – or hat. The fact is I’ve already “donated” far more in time and money than this, but I’m not counting beans here. This is a labor of love.
