California: Thirty Days to Respond to Match Gift to Help FPM

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

A donor to FPM has just committed to match donations that are received
by FPM for the next 30 days, for an amount up to $10,000. For every
dollar that you give during this time, this donor gives a dollar.
This is a great opportunity to multiply your help to FPM.

As I mentioned in my earlier email to you on October 17, that unless
FPM receives increased financial support, they will not be able to
meet all their expenses and payroll these next few months.

In summary, FPM is the only organization with a full-time presence in
Sacramento dedicated to protecting the freedoms of private
homeschoolers and their parental rights in the California Legislature.

God has blessed the hard work of FPM these 26 years since they began
in 1986 to preserve 100% of our home education freedoms in the very
challenging California Legislature. This year, their hard teamwork
gained many victories to protect your freedoms, leading to the defeat
of AB 2203, AB 1772, SB 1551, AB 889 and AB 1564 (for details, see my
Oct. 17 email).

Family Protection Ministries is funded solely by tax-deductible
donations from homeschool families in California. Without your
giving, FPM will not exist, and home education will be in peril in

FPM must have the proper resources to continue to provide this
outstanding advocacy to protect your freedoms. Please give now so
that this match offer of up to $10,000 in these next 30 days can be
met. Even if you gave to FPM after reading my last email, please
consider giving again now.

Family Protection Ministries needs your help now!

Make your tax-deductible gift payable to FPM, and mail it today to:

P.O. Box 730
Lincoln, CA 95648-0730

Thank you for your consideration of FPM's urgent need as they work
diligently for the Lord on your behalf.

God Bless,

Mike Smith
President, HSLDA

-> Will your children's inheritance retain its value?

If you pass on a legacy of freedom, your children and their
children's children will thank you. But freedom is never secure;
it must always be guarded. Membership with HSLDA is an investment
in the future that can be passed on to future generations of
families wanting to teach their children at home.
