On Friday, Glenn shared the remarkable news that the Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund had received over $600,000 in donations. Much of that money was raised through small donations over just a couple of days. Over the weekend, Mercury One brought in another $100,000, bringing the grand total to more than $700,000. On radio this morning, Glenn asked his audience to help Mercury One reach its goal of $1 million.
As you may have heard, Glenn will be visiting the border town of McAllen, Texas this Saturday, July 19. Politicians like Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and faith leaders from will join him and Mercury One as they begin to distribute food, clothing, and other items requested by local charities and churches.
“This is an important week. This is a week that, I believe, we can begin to change the world,” Glenn said. “As I set my family down yesterday at the dinner table, I asked if they would join me in fasting and praying this week because I believe this is the beginning of a journey that I have been avoiding and dreading, quite honestly, for quite some time because this is the beginning of the times that will try men's souls. This is the time where we will decide who we are.”
Perhaps what is most incredible about the money Mercury One has raised over the last several weeks is the way in which the money has come in. Through $5, $10, and $20 donations, Mercury One has now raised over $700,000 dollars.
As Glenn explained, there are a lot of people in his audience – rightfully so – who are angry. In fact, Glenn is angry too. But he believes the American people must offer humanitarian aid while the government takes care of the border crisis it has created.
“There are a ton of people in this audience that are truly angry, and I am too. I join you. I am truly angry at what has happened,” Glenn said. “Our country is being led to destruction, either through incompetence or design. Those in Washington don't have any answers. They have only solutions that create more problems.”
“[But] I have a goal that we will be able to bring $1 million worth of aid down to the border this week. This aid comes because the churches reached out and said, ‘Help us. Please, somebody help us. We're overwhelmed,’” he continued. “I love this audience… They are the best people I believe ever gathered together as an audience. They are a group of people that understand that America is not a place. America is a state of mind.”
