Operation Love Wins

Campaign Created by: The Real J6, LLC.

The funds from this campaign will be received by Sarah McAbee.

Raised: USD $ 57,413

The only thing sweeter than union, is reunion. ♥️

Our goal with Operation Love Wins is to reunite the individuals in the DC Gulag with their family and friends by funding a trip for visitation. We want to make it as affordable and easy for everyone to see their loved ones. It’s been almost two years for most of us. We are asking fellows patriots to donate money, airline miles, hotel points, or other travel resources to aid us in this cause. You can donate money via our GiveSendGo. If you have travel rewards that you’d like to donate, please reach out directly to The Real J6. 

We estimate that it will cost approximately $2,50family (give or take) for one trip. Here is what a family (up to four) will receive:

  • Economy round trip flights (or other modes of transportation if requested)
  • Housing for one or two days
  • Transportation

Every penny we receive from this will go to our cause.

Operation Love Wins

Funds will be received and paid out by The Real J6, LLC. operated under our managing partner, Sarah McAbee

Since January 6, 2021 our lives have been turned upside down. My daughter, who was 14 at the time was traumatized that day by being gassed and attacked. Our family was watched and harassed by the FBI for four months before they violently raided our home, which further traumatized my daughter, who now suffers with PTSD and anxiety my husband was on house arrest for nearly 2 years before he was sentenced to four years in prison over a officer running into him! We’ve had to shut our business down. I am having to sell off things to make ends meet because he was the sole provider. I’m a stay at home, wife and mother. he’s currently in DC waiting to be moved to a federal prison and I am working part time and other side jobs to do damage control to keep us from losing anything else on top of homeschooling my daughter. Had someone not told my husband about Operation Love Wins, I would not have been able to go and support my husband at sentencing. My children were also able to go and see their father for the first time in four months. They've never been away from him this long, and although it was hard seeing him like that, they were thankful to see their fathers face. I think the campaign is important for the J6 families, because like me a lot of us live paycheck to paycheck, a lot of us have lost our providers and lot of us have children and there's no way for us to be able to afford these visits. Inflation is insane and having the burden of taking care of your finances on top of making sure your love one has commissary and phone calls. It's just too much. I would like to thank everyone that has donated and just say that I'm truly grateful from the bottom of my heart. It was an answer to prayer, so thank you all for being someone's answer to prayer.

I wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible experience I had during Barry's sentencing. The impact of this journey cannot be overstated, and it is only fitting that I share my heartfelt thanks with you.

Barry's sentencing hearing turned out to be an emotionally charged three-hour ordeal that day, followed by another session the next morning. In those challenging moments, the opportunity to be present was a gift beyond measure. I was able to see Barry and share an embrace, a simple yet powerful gesture that meant the world to me.

What made this experience even more remarkable was having Darin by my side. His guidance ensured that I not only found my way but also remained safe throughout this emotionally charged process. I am profoundly grateful for his presence and support.

Furthermore, when my flight was unexpectedly delayed, your team's quick thinking and kindness shone brightly. You arranged for me to stay at a hotel instead of being stranded at the airport. This act of compassion eased a significant burden during a stressful time.

Although I regret not being able to visit Freedom Corner, the love and support I received from family, friends, and Operation Love Wins were immeasurable. Knowing that Barry had a community rallying behind him undoubtedly made a positive impression on the judge, highlighting the importance of his support system.

I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of you for making this experience possible. Your dedication to your mission is truly a blessing, not only for me but for my family as well. Your work is changing lives, and I am a living testament to that.

May God bless each of you abundantly for the compassion and support you provide to individuals and families like mine. Operation Love Wins is a shining beacon of hope, and I am forever grateful for the blessing you have bestowed upon me.

With immense gratitude and warm regards,

Mary Ann Ramey

How long had it been since you saw your loved one in person?

August 26, 2021

Explain what it felt like for you to reunite with your loved one.

It felt amazing to finally have my almost 6 year old see her father after two years. It was nice to be able to hug him after not seeing him for so long. 

Why do you think this campaign is important for J6 families?

If it wasn’t for this campaign I wouldn’t have been able to see him again till he got released and I don’t even know when that would be. I really appreciate it, all my daughter does is ask about her dad. 

What would you say to the people who made this possible?

I think you all are amazing and made something happen for my daughter that I wasn’t able to do! I am struggling being a single mom since David was taken away from us, you all are amazing! Rose and I appreciate you all!

How long had it been since you last saw your loved one?
Until April 14th it had been 20 months since I saw Sean, I had so many emotions running through me on my way to the jail. I was excited, sad, happy, nervous. . . as I walked through the door and saw him briefly standing in a cell it was sad, but then they let him out and I received the tightest hug ever and didn't want to let go! It felt so good to feel him and hug him. For a brief moment I felt like it was a dream. Saying goodbye for the day was hard. I started to cry as I walked out. . . Leaving him there is hard and not knowing when he will be home. 

Why do you think this campaign is important for J6 families?
I think this campaign is very important as it helps reunite families who have been separated for some time. It gives the person behind bars hope and support that they often times feel like they don't have. It's important to help keeps families together and in touch as the cost for some of us to travel that far is too much especially if you’re a single income household. It also shows a united front that us J6ers stick together, are family and we lookout for one another.  

What would you say to the people who made this possible?

I thank Shane and Sarah along with everyone who helps with Love Wins from the bottom of my heart. If it were not for Love Wins I would not have been able to visit Sean and he would not have had a single person on his side praying for him in that courtroom. He would have been all alone. Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am for Love Wins and all that they provided for me to make my trip happen. I will forever be thankful.

For me, it had been two full years since I had seen my dad. Which is an extremely long time for me. I hadn’t been able to see his face to give him a hug in what felt like forever. It was difficult being so far away from him, and it hurt not being able to see him.

Explain what it felt like for you to reunite with your loved one?

It felt great being able to see my dad again. He was doing great, he was smiling and as happy as could be when I saw him. He was laughing and cracking jokes the whole time. It brought so much joy to me seeing him so happy regardless of his current situation. That first hug in over two years made me cry but I was getting a hug from my dad and that was all that mattered in that moment. He was full of life.

Why do you think this campaign is important for J6 families?

Yes, I think it’s important because everyone should be able to see their family members; especially after it being so long since they had seen them. It brought joy and fulfillment to not only me but I’m sure everyone else there too. I believe that regardless of the situation, everyone needs to be able to see their family and others.

What would you say to the people who made this possible?

I would like to say thank you to The Real J6 team for planning this trip and reuniting me with my dad. Being able to see my dad again was such a relief for me, it helped me realize that he will be there no matter what. I want to thank everyone who made it possible. It’s very appreciated beyond words can express.

The men in the DC Gulag and The Real J6 Team are so very appreciative for all the support from everyone who has donated money and travel rewards. To see my friends reunited with their loved ones was an experience that is hard to put into words. I’ve witnessed tearful laughs and the tightest hugs. Thank you for making that happen! 

We are in the process of putting together testimonials to share with everyone. Let me just say to see my sixteen year old daughter for the first time in two years melted my heart. She started crying as soon as she saw me and it was all I could do to hold it together. So I went into dad mode of course and said, “well I know my haircut looks dumb, but I didn't think it would make you cry!" Then she smiled, wiped her tears and giggled. The best part was seeing her smile, hugging her and being able to reassure her that everything was going to be okay. My little girl is worried about me. I need to fight this fight. To be able to see her and knowing she is okay put more fuel in my tank to continue fighting. So, thank you! You all are the ones who made this possible. You are being the hands and feet of Christ. Bless you all. Thank you for praying and supporting us. We have a really big announcement coming soon so stay tuned and go to www.therealj6.com to keep up with what we are doing. 

May we continue to reunite families!

God bless you all,

On behalf of myself and all the men here in the C2B pod of the DC DOC, we appreciate all the kind words, prayers, good vibes, airline miles, hotel rewards and donations that you all have sent our way. We have multiple families that have signed up and cannot wait to see the reaping of what your treasure and efforts has sown. I see in the very near future kids hugging their fathers, parents hugging their sons and significant others hugging their husbands with tears and laughter all around. We are almost to our goal so please share this with fellow patriots, friends, family, and loved ones. Again, we all thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts for making a way where there was none. We thank God for you all and for His love and sacrifice for us. Thank you Jesus! We look forward to sharing pictures, videos, and stories of these visits with you soon.

God bless you all,

Shane Jenkins, Founder of The Real J6
