THANK YOU to All of Our Supporters, Members, and Volunteers!
To all the great American patriots who donated this year in support of our work here at Oath Keepers – THANK YOU!
Without your financial support, we would not have been able to do any of the great things we did this year, such as: the disaster relief work after two hurricanes in NC and FL (where we protected entire communities from looters and provided security for medical personnel conducting wellness checks, as well as delivering tens of thousands of meals to survivors); the numerous times we have stood watch over life, liberty, and property (including standing watch at public schools to protect against mass shooters); or our current border operation, where we are working with border ranchers and volunteer pilots to provide additional eyes and ears on the border to spot and report for Border Patrol. And, as always, reaching out to current serving police, military, fire, and other first responders with the message of fidelity to the oath they swore to support and defend the Constitution, as well as providing expert advice and free training on how to make our communities, including our schools, safer.
All that we do, whether it is constitutional education and advocacy, community preparedness training, or direct assistance in times of need, relies on your support. None of that would have been possible without your generous donations.
And a big hearty THANK YOU to all of our members, whose dues are vital to keeping this organization going, and who’s direct volunteer participation is the backbone of our work on the ground in each state. And a big THANK YOU to the non-members who also stepped up and volunteered in answer to our calls to action, giving their time and sweat, and putting themselves in harms way for others. Members and non-member volunteers, we salute you all!
For example, we had patriots who traveled from as far away as New York and Connecticut to come to Florida to lend a hand after the devastating hurricane there. One of them was an Oath Keepers member who was a FDNY firefighter and paramedic 911 veteran. He lost close buddies on 911 when the twin towers came down. But his service to his nation is not done. He drove all the way to Florida to help stand watch against looters in Malone, FL, as well as conducting wellness checks and medical checks in the community after the hurricane.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a “George Soros” type big money donor on the political right. On the left, Soros and other major leftist donors give millions to left wing groups, lavishly funding their operations. On the right, rich Republicans tend to only donate to political campaigns and big PACs. We have to rely on “Mom and Pop” donors and average working class patriots, as well as on your membership dues, to fund our operations. And we know that when you donate, it is coming from working people who simply love their country and want to leave it a better place for their children and grandchildren. And the same goes for when you put your boots on the ground and volunteer to help in person. We know you take off time from work, and away from your family, to come and lend a hand. That makes your contribution even more impressive.
This organization would not exist without your support and participation. We are very grateful, and we thank God for people like you. We have big plans for 2019, and we look forward to working with you in the New Year to continue to support and defend the Constitution and to work hard toward the revitalization and restoration of our constitutional republic. As you spend time with loved ones and close friends this Christmas, reflect on a year where you directly helped in the cause of American liberty, give yourself a pat on the back, recharge, and get ready to drive on even harder in the new year.
God bless you all, and Merry Christmas!
