The PATRIOT CHARITY PROJECT combines support for local charities and promotion of patriotism.
It was launched on February 18, 2018 in a small town in the American heartland. A "semi-retired" businessman loved his town and wanted to contribute. Unfortunately, the "Great Recession" had hit him hard. His primary source of personal income was social security. So he decided to put his half century of business experience and contacts to good use.
He decided to offer free "Betsy Ross" flags in order to encourage donations to local charities in his town and promote patriotism at the same time. This was the first project.
The second project offers free badges which display the Betsy Ross flag as well as the town's name and the word "Patriot". Convenient counter displays are also provided.
Volunteers and contacts are wanted! But NOT financial donations! That money should stay in the community and be used to support local charities.
