Jan 6 For DC Kids Christmas Initiative

Attention Donors! Citizens Against Political Persecution, INC. has transferred the administration of this fundraiser to the following organization, effective 12/29/2021:

Equity of Justice League, Inc
New York 501c3 Non-Profit Public Charity
EIN: 87-4078577

This Holiday Gift campaign is created specifically for disadvantaged Greater Washington DC Children, on behalf of the J6 Political Prisoners.  More importantly, a specific emphasis will be placed on the children of Incarcerated Inmates of the Washington DC Jail - General Population.

Among those indefinitely detained in Washington DC for the events surrounding January 6th are a group of individuals who have historically and regularly supported and participated in community outreach programs both in their home communities and around the nation, such as:

  • Hurrican Rescue and Relief
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Local Food Banks
  • Make a Wish Foundation
  • Animal Reserves
  • Wounded Warrier Project
  • Ronal McDonald House
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Goodwill
  • United Way
  • Toys for Tots
Those are to just name a few.  They did not want to miss the opportunity this year to help their local community, and right now that community is Washington DC, more specifically the DC Jail.

"We are reaching out to people across the country to donate to our 'Jan 6 For DC Kids' GSG Campaign to help those less fortunate this holiday season.  We are starting this drive to raise money to buy toys for the kids here in DC, focusing primarily, but not limited to, our fellow inmates on the other side of this very jail.  We want them and their families to know we are going to do everything we can to give their kids a very Merry Christmas!

"We have all had a rough year being held here in DC and we appreciate all of the love and support we have received, but it's the time of year to give, not receive.  

"So we wanted to temporarily take the focus off of us and direct it to those in need here in DC, our local community.  All of the donations received will go to the children of our fellow inmates on the other side of the jail, or to local community children programs.  We hope you will give to this great cause and help us bring joy to the kids here in DC!  We thank you for your support.  Merry Christmas and God Bless America!"

"Merry Christmas! Thank you for the donations and well wishes for the children of Washington DC. Many of us here in the 'Patriot Wing' of the jail would be actively engaging in charities in our own communities during this Holiday Season. Having called DC home for nearly a year it makes sense to look out for this community and work to spread cheer to its youngest and most vulnerable. You make the season bright, you make America great, thank you." - Kyle Fitzsimon

"This is my first time exposed to the jail system, and it SUCKS! Unfortunately the children of those incarcerated, through no fault of their own, get caught up in the chaos too. Having the opportunity to help the kids of those in the DC jail, having been detained here myself, is meaningful. Please help us if you can to return some sort of normalcy to those children during this Holiday Season, it will make a difference. God bless and Merry Christmas." - Jeffrey Brown

"This Holiday Season I would like to share my gratitude. I have the opportunity to help a child in need who might not be sure if Santa will stop by his home this year. It fills my heart with joy to help raise money for children in need in the DC area. Please help with a donation and SHARE THIS LINK far and wide, as I have done the same. Happy Holidays!" - Sean McHugh

"I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas. This is the time of year when the spirit of the American people shines the brightest. It's a time of brotherly love and an opportunity to make a small investment in the future leadership of our Constitutional Republic. There is not much more that soothes ones soul than to give to a complete stranger. By donating to 'Jan 6 For DC Kids' you are planting the seeds of hope, faith, and love. It is an honor to be able to continue with community outreach in these trying times and we know the American people will rally to this noble cause. God bless America and God bless the American people. Merry Christmas." - Peter Stager

The following are messages from J6 Political Prisoners at Washington DC Jail - CTF!

Kelly Meggs:
"Twas the night before Christmas,
   And all the DC Kids were not well.
So the Jan 6ers sent them help,
   From deep in their cell.
The put out the call,
   to their Patriot friends.
So the Grinch can't steal Christmas,
   from these kids once again!

Thank you all for your help.  We truly wanted this to be a real blessing to the kids in DC who's father and/or mother have been locked up here.  A chance for us to NOT think of ourselves or our families who are also alone this year.  But for those who may even be less fortunate than us.  God Bless You ALL & Merry Christmas.  Please LIKE & SHARE the link to help the DC Kids!"

Jonathan Gennaro Mellis:
"Thank you all for rallying to this campaign to bring smiles to the beautiful and innocent children of DC who's parents may be going through tough, hard times.  This time of year is my favorite because its all about LOVE and GIVING.  God bless all of you, especially those of you who continue this spirit of LOVE and GENEROSITY all year round."

Ronald McAbee:
"Even if we can bring joy to just one child this Christmas, its worth everything to me.  I pray that this project exceeds expectations and is able to buy every DC kid the gift he or she wants!  I try to give back to my community in any way possible, and this year it's DC.  May God bless 'Jan 6 for DC Kids' and may God bless America!"

Shane Jenkins:
"It's of utmost importance that children know they are loved.  It's an honor and privilege to use our plight to bring joy to these babyies' lives.  God Bless!"

Billy Chrestman:
As a father of 4, as well as a grandfather, I know how important and crucial kindess is to a child's upbringing.  It's an honor to help children in need.  Especially in this horribly politicized climate of Washington DC.  God bless all children and God bless America!"
