HSLDA: Support Parental Rights, Get a Gift!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

No doubt you have noticed the increasingly aggressive assaults on
homeschooling and parental rights all over the world. Now, the State
Department and even the Supreme Court are being asked to consider
whether these principles should be adopted in the United States as
well. We need your help to finance the effort to stop these threats
from invading our shores.

These threats are exactly why three years ago we provided funding to
begin a new organization charged with protecting the rights of parents
from these intrusive internationalist principles. That group is, and we remain proud partners in their efforts to
pass a Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The bulk of their funding comes through annual memberships of $25 per
person. That's really a small amount to contribute for the
preservation of parental rights for ourselves, our children, and our
children's children.

In the past year, their tiny staff with its limited resources has been
instrumental in directing a solid grassroots campaign to build support
for the Amendment in Congress. No one expected this small organization
to have any impact so soon, but they have quietly secured more than
120 Amendment cosponsors in the House, plus 6 in the Senate. And they
have done it all on a shoestring.

But because of our great relationship with them, we have been able to
join with them in making available to you a special limited-time
offer. During this brief period, everyone through HSLDA who signs up
as a member of with a donation of $25 or more will
receive a free Parental Rights T-shirt with their membership. This
offer is only available through HSLDA as a sort of "thank you" for the
support our organization has shown them on your behalf already.

We know that as homeschoolers you recognize, exercise and appreciate
your rights to direct the upbringing and education of your children.
We know it is important to you to raise up your children in your own
values and beliefs. We know you never want to see our government take
those rights away from you. That is why we would urge you to support today. By supporting them, you support the rights
on which HSLDA and homeschooling freedoms depend. Together, we can
secure these rights not only for ourselves, but for our posterity.

To take advantage of this offer and help us support this vital cause,
click on this exclusive link and donate
just $25 or more.

Thank you for helping us protect your rights as a parent.

-> Extreme makeovers are for extreme circumstances...

Most homeschools don't need an extreme makeover, but there is
something to be said for attention to detail and recognition of
accomplishments. Watch the media and you'll soon see that not
everyone wants home educators and homeschooling to look good.
HSLDA works hard to shed light on the good work of home educators
so it's obvious that we don't need someone "making-over" our
homeschools. Join HSLDA and help us show the world that we're fine
as we are . . . thank you!
