Home School Foundation: International Homeschoolers in Trouble!

Dear Friend of Homeschooling,

Persecuted homeschoolers from countries all over the world need our
help to achieve a freedom that many of us take for granted--the right
to teach our children at home!

Will you help?

In countries like Germany, Sweden, Botswana and Brazil, parents are
being threatened with huge fines, jail time, and the loss of their
children. Many have fled to other countries to keep their families
intact and continue homeschooling.

We have created a powerful video testimonial at
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=9890 to help you experience their
lives. Will you share a few minutes with our fellow homeschoolers from
around the world to learn more about their plight?

Please pray for them. And please forward this testimony to your family
and friends and link to the video on your Facebook wall or other
social network--we need to get this important message to as many
people as possible.

Will you also consider making a gift? We know that times are tough
with the current economy. But if you are able, would you consider a
tax deductible gift of any amount to the Home School Foundation's
International Fund at http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=9889 ? A
donation of $25, $35, $50, even $500 or $1,000 would allow us to
continue our work in advancing the cause of homeschooling worldwide.

When we help homeschoolers abroad, we are also helping defend our own
freedom from the dangerous threat of international law and treaties
like the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Thank you for taking the time to watch these families' stories in the
midst of this busy holiday season. May you and your family have a
blessed Christmas and joyous New Year!

With my humble and heartfelt appreciation,

J. Michael Smith
President

-> Have you ever yelled into the wind, only to hear the sound of your
voice blown back at you?

It's hard to be heard in the midst of a storm. Trying to influence
federal legislation is much like yelling to be heard while
standing in a fierce wind. Yet when 80,000 voices join together,
they become a powerful force that cannot be drowned out.
Join HSLDA to be heard above the tempests that threaten homeschool
freedoms.
