Can we raise enough money to Trigger the Move early?

More than 40 Trigger the Move Patrons have already made the financial commitment to underwrite the Free State Project’s plan to accelerate the signer rate. See who they are.

Now, we need YOU!

You can support the FSP by making a one-time $1,000 donation or pledge to pay $100 over 10 months. For less than the cost of a daily latte, you can help the Free State Project:

  • Hire a publicist to generate monthly national news stories (there is a direct correlation between national news coverage and increases in our signer rate)
  • Expand our advertising, marketing and outreach
  • Fund single-issue advertising campaigns on social media (e.g. targeted gun rights ads in surrounding New England states, or reaching out to the Ron Paul community)
  • Sponsor more liberty-oriented events across the country
  • Cover costs for booth, travel, and accommodation at pro-liberty events
  • Design and print more issue-specific marketing materials (e.g. food freedom, homeschooling, crypto-currencies, Open Source, college students, etc.)
  • Update our merchandise
  • Fund staff and offset costs incurred by doers/volunteers

This past year, the Free State Project has:

  • Surpassed 15,555 signers, putting us at more than 77% of our 20,000 goal
  • Hosted two record-breaking events, with PorcFest X attracting 1,700+ attendees, and Liberty Forum 2014 more than 500, as well as attracting internationally renowned speakers
  • Significantly expanded our social media reach with Twitter and Facebook now being the #1 and #2 source for new signers respectively
  • Launched the inaugural The Free Stater magazine
  • Moved into an office space
  • Launched a new state-of-the-art Drupal website
  • Started a monthly meeting for better communication and execution of volunteer projects
  • Implemented project management software and a donor CRM
  • Completed the mover number update project
  • Streamlined administration with regular welcome letters, support desk follow up, and calendar updates
  • Created a new gun-rights specific brochure and put together an active outreach team to recruit at pro-gun rallies
  • Revitalized the monthly FSP newsletter, which now serves as a marketing tool
  • Started providing weekly status updates to FSP doers and organizers
  • Hired a full-time president and retained our part-time administrator, Chris Lopez
  • Launched a successful PR campaign against the false allegations in the City of Concord’s BEARCAT grant application, including the subsequent hush-hush resignation of the police chief
  • Attended scores of events, handed out thousands of flyers, done tons of radio and print interviews, laughed, cried, gritted our teeth, and then fought some more!

If the signer acquisition rate does not accelerate, the FSP will reach 20,000 signers in 2018, and attract the remaining movers to New Hampshire by 2023. This is too long to wait. We know concentrating liberty activists in New Hampshire is a proven strategy to achieve Liberty in Our Lifetime. We need the next wave of activists NOW!

Less than 5,000 people to go and yet it feels like it's as far away as Pluto. Weren't there like 5,000 signers within the first year or so the FSP being created? And that was over a decade ago when social media was in its infancy. What was done back then to get those first 5,000 signers?

I'm just dumbfounded how slowly our numbers are increasing. I'm really kind of ashamed of libertarians, to be honest. I understand that we're like hearding cats, but damn, the FSP is a no-brainer.

Many people think beauty is important, since it can boost their self-esteem and help them feel more attractive. If you are comfortable with your appearance and like yourself, other people will also like you. Read this article for some tips on how to remain beautiful from the inside out.

Vaseline is great for your feet. Your feet will feel as smooth as a baby's bottom. You can add this to your nightly beauty ritual to make it easier to remember. After applying the Vaseline, slip on a pair of cotton socks before going to bed.

Vitamin E plays a vital role in beauty. You can use it for all sorts of things. It is helpful in making your skin soft. If you apply it to your nails, your cuticles will look better.

If you want the vibrant looking skin you see on magazine covers, make sure you are always carrying a moisturizing lotion. This is necessary, especially in the winter, when the air is dry and skin cracks and breaks; that is not so attractive! When you moisturize, you are able to prevent the dry skin that leads to cracks.

If your face is especially square shaped, you can soften the overall appearance and make it appear less angular by using a creamy rose or coral blush. Use your finger to apply cream blush to your cheeks on the apples, then gently fan the blush toward your temples.

Curl your eyelashes before putting on your mascara. Using an eyelash curler can make a bigger impact that you realize, helping your lashes look longer, and also creating the visual illusion of lifting the entire area surrounding your eyes. You want to start near your lash base by squeezing the eyelash curler. Hold it steady for just a second. Then, you want to move the curler gently in the direction of the ends of your lashes, where you will squeeze it again. Working in an upward motion will give your lashes a nice natural curve.

Do not use extremely hot water when bathing. Hot water will cause skin pores to expand, and you will lose natural oils your skin needs. Those oils then get washed away by the shower. The easiest way to avoid this is to use warm or tepid water. Doing so is more likely to keep your skin soft. This has the added bonus of reducing your monthly heating bill.

The worst thing that could happen when trying false eyelashes is discovering a glue allergy. To prevent this in advance, test the eyelash glue with a small application on your arm. Leave this for at least a day! If your skin is clear, you are fine!

Is your manicure ruined almost immediately with chips and scratches? A top coat can help the look last as long as a week. Do not mix this up with your usual clear nail polish. Although you may not think there's much of a difference between the two, there is. Get yourself some top coat, not a clear polish.

Pink lipstick is a perfect concealer for imperfections. Apply it to your lips to draw attention away from blemishes. The warm pink tones compliment almost every skin tone. If you use a quality concealer, and allow your lips to really stand out, your acne will be much less noticeable.

Nice eyelashes can make a strong impact. Before any mascara is applied, dust off your eyelash curler to use on those lashes. Eyes attract attention to the face, and curly lashes really enhance the eyes!

Are you aware of how best to start your own personal beauty regimen? Are things clearer to you now? Are you aware of what can help you? If you can now provide an answer to these questions, then you have read and understood the previous tips and are ready to make beauty work for you.
