-> "I saved my entire membership fee with one discount"

"We've been a Liberty Mutual customer for over 12 years. We
called and asked about our HSLDA member discount and they lowered
our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
know!!'"

3. Help Families Hurt in the Storms

The Home School Foundation is seeking to minister to homeschool
families who have experienced a loss of their homes, livelihood or
curriculum due to the recent storms, tornadoes, and flooding across
the country.

Through the Compassion Emergency Response program, the Foundation
helps homeschool families who have been impacted by a natural
disaster. If you know of a homeschooling family who has been seriously
affected by the recent storms, please have them contact the Home
School Foundation. If you would like to help other homeschoolers going
through hard times, please donate to the Compassion Emergency Fund.
