Did you know you have donated to dozens of charitable organizations?
At 4Patriots, we share a percentage of our profits with a variety of organizations. Most benefit U.S. veterans. Or active-duty troops and their families. Such as Fisher House Foundation and Operation Homefront. As well as For the Troops and A Soldier’s Child Foundation.
Not to mention other philanthropic causes not necessarily connected with the military. Every time you purchase a 4Patriots product, some of your money goes to a worthy cause. Sometimes as a cash donation. Other times as a much-needed product gift.
The bottom line is, we’ve been blessed and we want to bless others in need. Now and then I like to let you know where some of your money is going. Today I’m going to give you a brief capsule report of four of our donation recipients.

Together We Achieve
There were many unfortunate events in 2020. The Midwest Derecho may have received the least amount of publicity. But it certainly left its mark on the U.S. landscape.
This widespread, straight-lined windstorm traveled 770 miles in August. At an average speed of 55 miles per hour. It was accompanied by a fast-moving group of severe thunderstorms. It moved from southeastern South Dakota and northeastern Nebraska through Iowa. As well as through Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan.
The derecho featured wind speeds of up to 126 miles per hour. It spawned 17 confirmed tornados. Two to three days after the storm hit, some 200,000 Iowans still had no power.
Cedar Rapids, Iowa was particularly hard hit. Realtor Raymond Siddell sprang into action. He organized a large emergency relief effort. Known as Together We Achieve, his group helped people find food, shelter and other supplies.
4Patriots donated 25 HaloXT flashlights to Raymond for distribution to those in need. As well as 25 Patriot Power Cells and ten 72-Hour Survival Food Kits. Plus 100 of our 72-Hour Survival Food Kits and six 4-Week Food Kits.
Veterans Adventure Group
When Americans serve in the armed forces, they are given a mission. They develop a sense of duty and purpose. And they benefit from a committed network of support.
But what happens when those soldiers return to civilian life?
Unfortunately, many U.S. veterans find themselves without those things. Some turn to alcohol or drugs to fill a void. An alarming number commit suicide.
Veterans Adventure Group helps vets manage their civilian lives. They do it with retreats that provide camaraderie and teamwork. And serve as a framework for building, training and equipping.
For the more active and healthy vets, activities include extreme events. Such as mountain climbing, skydiving, rock climbing and kite surfing. For others, there is scuba diving and skiing. Plus caving, hiking and nature excursions.
4Patriots has made several product donations to Veterans Adventure Group. Including our Survival Food and Sun Kettles. Plus Solar Sentry Lights and BugOUT lanterns.
Farmer Veterans Coalition
Georgia native Carl Camon developed an early interest in agriculture. His father farmed the field in front of their house for several years. As a teenager, Carl joined the Future Farmers of America.
Over time, Carl put agriculture on the backburner. He joined the U.S. Air Force after high school graduation. Following basic training in Texas, he served for four years in the States. Then 6½ years in the Reserves, including a stint in England.
Following his service, Carl was a corrections officer and then a teacher. He became the first Black mayor of Ray City, Georgia, winning re-election four times. He also launched the Mayor’s Youth Leadership Institute of Ray City in 2000.
But Carl never lost his early interest in agriculture. He got connected with the Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC) in 2019. Then he took on a project that combines his military experience with his love for farming.
FVC sent Carl seeds in 2019 to fuel his community garden project in Ray City. The seeds had been donated to FVC by 4Patriots. Carl’s voice was heard in the community… and somewhere else. Carl set the tone for the 2019 FVC Convention by singing America the Beautiful during opening ceremonies.
