“We don’t stand between government aid and people in need. We stand with people in need so they no longer need the government.”
We restore communities in urgent need.
When disaster strikes a community in America, we want to be there to help. Through the private charity of generous Americans, Mercury One was able to provide 10 truckloads of food and supplies to victims of hurricane Sandy, much-needed supplies to those affected by hurricane Isaac, and over $500,000 worth of supplies to Americans devastated by the historic tornado outbreak of 2011. Donate to the disaster relief fund.
To make our response to disaster more rapid and effective, we are taking steps to offer preparedness training to Americans across the country. This training will address how to respond to emergencies as well as provide strategies for storing emergency supplies such as food, water, and first aid. Our goal is to see every American equipped to address a crisis situation without needing to wait on the Government to intervene.
We protect expressions of faith and values.
SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL
We believe that Israel is a unique bastion of Judeo-Christian values in the middle east—values like respect for human life, personal responsibility, and an enduring faith in God. In 2011, Mercury One partnered with Glenn Beck to host Restoring Courage in Jerusalem to support and show solidarity with the people of Israel. This is one example of how we work to serve the interests of one of our most important valuable allies.
CHARITY FOR THE POOR
Our passion for charity flows directly out of our passion for faith. We believe it’s the the duty of faith based organizations and private individuals—not the government—to help lift others out of poverty. We partner with faith based organizations to provide food to those who are on food assistance programs. We envision a future where Americans have banded together with such generosity that government “charity” has become obsolete.
We shine a light on education.
ACTION IN EDUCATION
Ever since the government started pushing Common Core—a set of educational standards that threaten to completely centralize our public education system—we have worked tirelessly to expose this program of control for what it is. With partners like Glenn Beck and TheBlaze, we’re spreading the word about Common Core and helping to lead an effective, grass-roots resistance so that we can re-claim the education of our children.
Mercury One is actively engaged in preserving and restoring some of America’s most valuable historical artifacts. At the Heritage Library, we’re acquiring original books, historical documents, and manuscripts. We raised thousands of dollars for the Holocaust Museum of Houston to restore a boat which was used to rescue thousands of Jews. By preserving the lessons of the past, we are ensuring a better future for America.
We foster the spirit of entrepreneurship
Behind a great accomplishment, you will nearly always find an individual striving in freedom. That’s entrepreneurship. In order to inspire and support women who are pursuing their dreams, Mercury One hosts an annual women’s conference. At the event, ambitious women hear from accomplished leaders such as Michele Bachmann, Diana and John Hagee, Betsy Morgan, and Tania Beck. They leave inspired and empowered to change the world for the better.
LEMONADE STAND DAY
Entrepreneurship reflects a mindset of hard work, self reliance, and problem solving. The best time to teach these principles is during childhood. To that end, Mercury One partnered with Glenn Beck and TheBlaze to establish National Lemonade Stand Day. On this occasion, kids around America get a taste of the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship, and together we preserve the tradition of entrepreneurship that has made America great.
