This is What Real Charity Looks Like

Now for the 4th year running, Shire Sharing and the greater Porcupine community came together the weekend before Thanksgiving to help distribute food packages to New Hampshire's needy. All the actions were voluntary, from the financial contributions to the folks who helped film this short clip. Enjoy the video, but be warned, you might want to grab a tissue first. Real charity is moving!

'Political Hobbyists' to Open Nano-Brewery

Early movers making a difference! From the Concord Monitor: "Bloom said he and McNeil are 'political hobbyists.' In recent years, they’ve both lobbied in favor of industrial hemp. McNeil is the executive director for the New Hampshire Coalition for Common Sense Marijuana Policy. Bloom drafted the law that created nanobreweries in New Hampshire." Read more...

Sharing is Caring: All Things Voluntary!

“We made a grown man cry!” ~ Angela H.

Tears of joy, for receiving a food basket through voluntary charity from Shire Sharing, a volunteer-based organization started by Amanda Bouldin four years ago as a tribute to and in loving memory of her father who had passed away from cancer. Hear the backstory of Shire Sharing in Amanda’s own words.

Shire Sharing has grown from its modest beginnings in 2011, when we fed 52 households, to a goal of 500 deliveries this year. In the end, 332 households received packages, while funds were raised to feed 500. The remaining meals will be distributed to Liberty House, a homeless veteran shelter in Manchester--all the turkeys!

The annual Shire Sharing Thanksgiving tradition now brings together a huge crew of Free Staters who celebrate the idea of voluntary giving. These dedicated activists spent the weekend spreading goodwill and goodies to those in need. It filled our hearts!

Freedom's Last Hope Is In NH

From Freedom Outpost: "In Obama's America, it can seem like freedom and limited government are a thing of the past. With a ballooning federal deficit, religious freedom under fire, and the Constitution treated as a joke, it's hard to find good news for our great country. Hard, but not impossible. Thankfully, there's hope, in the form of a determined group of conservative activists that's growing by the day: the Free State Project." Read more...

101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire: Official List from the New Documentary

The Free State Project (FSP) started with an idea: if 20,000 libertarian activists could all move to one small state with a friendly culture, that would be enough to create true “Liberty In Our Lifetime.” In 2003, New Hampshire was chosen. Since then, more than 16,000 people have signed the Statement of Intent to move when the target is hit – and 1,674 participants have already made the move!

This week, two of these early movers released an original documentary on the project – 101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire, available for free on Youtube. Click the video above to watch right now.

Like the FSP itself, this film started with a man and a vision. Director Vince Perfetto wanted to figure out how he could adapt a famous outreach pamphlet, “101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire,” into a feature film. He enlisted the help of filmmaker Beau Davis, and the two began recording personal stories from FSP participants and perspectives on this historic project from liberty’s leading lights, including Ron Paul’s former Economic Adviser Peter Schiff, Food Inc.’s Joel Salatin, Patrick Byrne of Overstock.com, Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine, and several more.

ItsLikeThisToo - Ep 3 - Carlos Morales

Here is this week's episode of It's Like This Too. We wanted to wait a day to release, so we didn't steal 101 Reason Liberty Lives in New Hampshire's thunder. I really loved doing this interview with Carlos Morales. He's wickedly funny guy, really passionate, and makes some pretty interesting facial expressions. I hope you enjoy watching this episode as much as we had making it!

Cecelia Fairchild and Shire Dude interview the author of Legally Kidnapped, Carlos Morales. Get the book. Check out his podcast.

As always, be sure to show some love to our partners in crime Voices of Liberty!

The film is a love letter from these 21st century pioneers to their newfound home.
