Small Business, Big Heart: The Marketplace by TheBlaze announces new charitable giving program

"We are going to do 10% storewide."

—Lori Erckenbrack, Minnestalgia Foods

When charitable giving is already woven into your life, building it into your business model makes perfect sense. That's what the owners of Minnestalgia Foods, Lori and Jay Erckenbrack have always thought, and now, they're taking action.

From now on, Minnestalgia Foods will donate 10% of every product sold at The Marketplace by TheBlaze to Mercury One, a nonprofit organization started in 2011.

"We are truly excited to be able to give back in this way," Lori says. "It is our way of sharing the blessing that The Marketplace has been to us."

The Erckenbracks chose Mercury One as the beneficiary of their giving because of the "whole picture" embodied by the young nonprofit organization. The mission of Mercury One is "To inspire, organize and mobilize individuals to improve the human condition physically, emotionally and spiritually with malice toward none and charity for all."

Mercury One has already made a name for itself in swiftly responding to disasters and supporting worthy causes throughout the country.

Contributing in this way, the Erckenbracks are able to follow a popular slogan at Mercury One:

"If we want government to do less, we need to do more."

To guide shoppers interested in supporting Mercury One through this program at The Marketplace, all products benefiting Mercury One with a minimum of 5% of sales will be stamped with the Mercury One logo.

"We are hoping that customers will get on board because it is a good cause," Lori says. "They can help without actually doing anything other than buying a product they would either normally buy or they would like to try."

Minnestalgia Foods is just one of many shops at The Marketplace committed to doing good through charitable efforts. They are putting their money where their hearts are while making a difference in our nation.

"Although our donation numbers may not be huge yet, we know that great things will be done with it," Lori says.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.

Bank of America SIDESTEPS the Constitution for Paris Climate Agreement

Bank of America sent out a news release announcing its plans to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions through its financing — meaning it's now putting policies into place that'll make it hard for people to do business if they don't support the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

"It is critical that we leverage all parts of our business – beyond our direct operations – in order to accelerate the transition to a net zero global economy," said Bank of America Vice Chairman, Anne Finucane.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explains how its new policies are an end-run around the U.S. Constitution and another example of the coming "Great Reset." He also exposes Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan's close connections to the World Economic Forum and the push for stakeholder capitalism.

And this is just the beginning.
