One of Southern Conservative, LLC’s core value is “CHARITY IS AN ACT OF KINDNESS”. We are giving 5 percent of our revenue from apparel and merchandise sales to the organizations shown below. The contribution pool will be divided evenly between these organizations and will currently be paid quarterly. The organizations are chosen by the founders of Southern Conservative, LLC, Charles Smith and John Bergeron, and are subject to change.
Should Southern Conservative, LLC create new partnerships with additional charitable organizations the contribution pool will be redistributed evenly. Another instance where the contribution pool may be redistributed would be an unfortunate circumstance where we elect to dissolve an existing partnership. These organizations have proven to provide purposeful acts of charity and are organizations we feel align with our mission.
Young Life Military
Although military kids walk the same school hallways as other teens, they live in a much different world. For them, being called a military "brat" is like being called a "brother" or "friend."
Military brats attend four to as many as six different schools between sixth-grade and their senior year. Many move to foreign countries. Most are likely to live with only one parent while patiently enduring a six- to 18-month deployment of their other parent. In their world, uncertainty has become the only constant.
Recognizing that "Reaching a World of Kids" includes those on military installations, Young Life Military has been ministering to military kids for almost 50 years.
Serving in the United States and 10 European and Asian countries, Young Life Military walks the halls with military teens and their families to help them face the unique and challenging aspects of military life.
Armed Citizen Project
The Armed Citizen Project is dedicated to facilitating the arming of law abiding citizens, and analyzing the relationship between increased firearm availability and rates.
We are choosing mid-high crime neighborhoods in cities across America, and offering defensive weapons to citizens that can pass a background check, and that will take our safety, legal, and tactical training. The data that we collect will be used in the completion of a policy study that will measure the deterrent effects of firearms on crime.
Gun-control advocates often argue that an increase in guns in an area will lead to an increase in crime, while gun-rights advocates often believe that fewer guns result in more crime. While both sides often argue that their opponents policies will result in more crime, gun-control proponents have largely been the victors when it comes to policy implementation.
Pregnancy Help Center
In August of 1990 a small group of people were brought together with a common interest. Their desire was to find a way to reach out to, and assist young women with unplanned pregnancies. With the support and assistance of First Baptist Church of Lake Jackson, The Pregnancy Help Center of Brazosport was formed and began operating from a small rented space located at 202 Dixie Drive in Lake Jackson. During the first few years the number of young women who came for help steadily increased and the number of people and churches who desired to help them also increased. Eventually it became necessary to add two paid staff members to assist the director. During the first eight years help was provided through one on one counseling with an interested individual with a compassionate heart. Practical assistance was provided in terms of diapers, formula, and baby food.
