This Campaign is currently disabled and can not receive new donations.

Colorado Baker Jack Phillips needs a new van.

Jack's Masterpiece Cakeshop serves everyone, including those in the LGBT community; however, he can't create cakes that express messages or celebrate events in conflict with his religious beliefs. As a result, he's been sued, mocked, had his store vandalized, and received death threats.

Masterpiece Cakeshop's business has dropped off in recent years, and now he needs our help. His delivery van is over 20-years-old has has over 200,000 miles. Having dependible delivery is essential to his business. He hopes to buy a used Dodge Caravan, but his friends think he deserves better.  Please consider chipping in to help this brave man replace his van so he can continue to use his vocation to serve his neighbors  to the glory of God.

"I want a world in which we are free to live peacefully according to our deepest convictions. I don't want to live in a world in which anyone should fear being punished for having beliefs the government doesn't like." - Jack

 

UPDATES

Jack Phillip's New (2016) Van
September 11, 2022

updateImage
The van is a 2016 Chrysler Town and Country with just over 22k miles (nearly new in my opinion).
The van is not only a very low mileage vehicle, but it is also remarkably clean and has been very well and regularly maintained (oil changes, etc.) over the years.
I used most of the money that had been donated toward the actual purchase of the van (license, insurance, etc.), and then I put the remainder in a special account to be used only for future insurance, maintenance and repairs.
Debi and I are so very grateful to everyone that contributed to this.
Notice the magnetic signs as well as the sign in our window celebrating our 29th anniversary​‌ in business (9/3/93).
Notice also, that the shirt that I am wearing is a shirt that was created by a friend of mine, Blaine Adamson of 'Hands on originals'. Blaine is another client that the Alliance Defending Freedom represented in court over the past decade.  Check here for Part of Blaine's story) When people support me or ADF, they are also supporting people like Blaine and other Americans who are standing for religious freedom, the right to freely live and work according to their conscience without fear of punishment from the government.

Thanks again,
Jack Phillips

Thank you so much!
We are so very grateful and encouraged by your overwhelming support and your many prayers on our behalf!
We can\'t wait to find our new van and get in on the road.
I will make sure to post pictures as soon as possible, but I have barely begun to explore the market!
Your generosity gives us many, many options and we will do our best to honor your wishes, but mostly to honor God\'s will for us in this very important decision.
Again, thank you all so very much!

Thanks again,
Jack Phillips

Frosting On the Cake:

Brothers and sisters in Christ, and friends of the First Amendment: Thanks to your sacrifices and generosity, we have exceeded our goal of $40,000 to help Jack buy a new delivery van. This is especially impressive since Facebook shadow-banned our fundraiser by hiding posts with the link. Thank you. We are especially grateful to writers Molly Hemingway and Joy Pullman of the Federalist who reached out to you while big tech was shutting us down.

So what\'s next? Several of my friends have said the van would likely cost more than the $40,000 we set for our goal, so I will keep this fund active for another week. In the meantime, Jack continues to face legal challenges, and his reputation and businesses have been badly damaged. Please keep Jack in your prayers, and keep track of ways you can continue to help him.

Sincerely,
Stephen

Thank you for the overwhelming support you’ve shown Jack through your donations and encouragement. I spoke to Jack today about the kind of delivery van he’d like to buy.
Thank you for the overwhelming support you’ve shown Jack through your donations and encouragement. I spoke to Jack today about the kind of delivery van he’d like to buy. Characteristically modest and frugal, he’ll be shopping for a used Dodge Caravan. Accordingly, I’ve reset the goal to $20,000.  Yes, I know we’re just fudging numbers, but for now, let’s consider anything beyond that goal as icing on the cake.

Facebook seems to be giving us a frosty reception. Several of us have noticed that the moderators seem to be hiding posts with the link to the fundraiser, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles.

Although I’ve come up with a lot of half-baked ideas to get around this censorship, the best I have for now is buttingering you up by telling you that you’re the salt of the earth, the creme de la creme, the leaven of the loaf, and asking you to reach out to your friends for donations.

Yours in Christ,
Stephen
