@everyone we've gotten a lot of new people. For those of you that don't already know, Vanguard America is a 501(c)(3). What does that mean for you?
Tax Deduction for Volunteer Work and Travel
Volunteers donate their talents and time to religious groups, charities, schools and government agencies that educate and serve needy people. Your service may involve traveling, overnight stays and supplies and clothes tailored to the volunteer work. What you spend to volunteer can reduce your federal income taxes, just as as donations of money and property do.
Traveling from home to volunteer can yield deductions. Qualified costs for getting to the destination include driving, tickets for an airline, train or bus, and taxi fares for the airport trip. For using your car, you can deduct either what you spend on gas or multiply your mileage by 14 cents. If you stay at least one night when volunteering, you may deduct the price of a hotel or motel room, and you can also deduct the cost of meals. You must avoid treating the trip as recreation or personal time, though getting satisfaction from volunteering does not render the trip nondeductible.
Uniforms and Supplies
You may reduce from your taxable income the price of buying or cleaning a uniform to volunteer at places such as a hospital or a national forest. You must wear the uniform while volunteering. The uniform must be primarily for the volunteer work rather than normal daily use; clothes you can normally wear at functions or activities other than volunteering are not deductible uniforms. You may write off the cost of buying equipment or supplies, such as a camera or film in photographing the nonprofit's activities, but not depreciation for the equipment.
Requirement to Itemize
Federal tax write-offs for volunteering apply only if you itemize deductions. These specific deductions are listed on Schedule A of your Form 1040
@everyone We're doing a fundraiser for the Suidlanders, a South African group dedicated to helping Whites in the event of a genocide scenario.
We're looking to raise around 10,000 dollars, I know that seems like a lot for just us but we all know fashy or sympathetic people that can spare a dime.
Look to the contribute page on our site, and leave a note saying that your amount is for the Suidlanders. They're staring genocide in the face over there and I can't garuntee we'd all be as brave in their shoes.
Message me if you have any further questions or ideas on how we can get the word out.
@Thomas Ryan There's no better cause to donate to. They've gotten 100% of my D'nations to anyone for the last like 3 or 4 months, outside of a youtuber who is also a white South African. The fact that no media covers the brutality going on there is all the evidence anyone should need to see in order to prove the passive attitude toward white extinction. I find myself not being able to talk to ppl about it longer than a minute or so. I just hafta send em a link or I chimp the fuck out and look retarded.
putting in a donation tonight, those boys need a fucking hand if anyone does
I donate some later this week
I am just asking people right now
If you're not in the Florida discord ask me for the link @everyone
@everyone Here are some notes on some of the things members did in Austin, in order to carry on and stay more professional and more cohesive, I suggest you read this.
@everyone Share, RT, like, spread it to your friends. Donate whatever you can, we're going to need a lot more if we're going to make our deadline.
There will be a national, coordinated postering day on the 15th. You will work with your local groups under your State Commander or Regional Commander.
Good locations include:
Do not break any laws, do it either on the 15th itself or the night of the 14th. We want participation out of every state to gain the most coverage and attention.
@Prophetmuhammad TX Is going to be renting a **15 seat van** to go to **Charlottesville, on August 12th for the Unite The Right event**
The event itself is on Saturday, the van crew will be **leaving Thursday,** and **getting back in Texas Monday.** If you are somewhere along the way, and would like to be picked up, that would be different for you.
Due to fuel costs and insurance for the van itself, the total travel budget for each rider will be around $150 to properly reimburse Prophet for being nice enough to organize this. That's about $400 cheaper than a plane ticket, and you get to hang with the boys. It does not include food, or hotels.
**Make your reservations for seats now** and contact Prophetmuhammad TX#8363 for more details. Depending on who wishes to be grabbed along the way and how many non-Texas seats are open, we will decide a route.
NEW BOOK READING
This is The Doctrine of Fascism, it's not too long and very informative.
You will read this and participate in a group discussion on it Tuesday afternoon. That should be more than enough time to read it all.
This discussion will take place in your state servers if you have a designated state leader. If you are in a smaller state that does not, it will take place in your district server's general voice channel.
Direct message your state or district commander if you have any questions.
@here if you are a veteran, current or former police, security, or have some sort of skill you think falls under that category please DM me ASAP
We are renting a 15 seat van to go to Charlottesville, on August 12th for the Unite The Right event. This event is a **BIG DEAL** and offers the chance to link up Vanguard guys from accross the nation.
The event itself is on Saturday, the van crew will be leaving Thursday, and getting back in Texas Monday. If you are somewhere along the way, and would like to be picked up, let us know.
Due to fuel costs and insurance for the van itself, the total travel budget for each rider will be around $150 to properly reimburse our guys for being nice enough to organize this. That's about $400 cheaper than a plane ticket, and you get to hang with the boys. It does not include food, or hotels, although that could be covered by others.
***Make your reservations for seats now and contact me for more details.***
@everyone Your book discussion will be scheduled by your State Commander for tomorrow afternoon/evening. When tomorrow is up to him, find out when it is ASAP if you do not know.
There will be another discussion in this server for all those without a State Commander, that will occur at 7 p.m. Central.
@everyone If your state chat is inactive or you do not have one, your local members are few or inactive, ask me to create a state channel for you in this server and I can help facilitate growth.
https://bloodandsoil.org/product/polo/ @everyone polos and flags are in stock. Preorders will ship tomorrow. Get yours now!
**We are experiencing a numerical surge of applications, and we need new vetters to process these potential members.**
If you are interested in becoming an interviewer for Vanguard America, please DM your District Commander (that's me) right away.
You must have a history of action with the group and commit to putting aside a certain day or days with specific times for interviewing.
@everyone **I need a volunteer from each state without a formal State Commander to step forward to help me complete the District Census.**
These states include:
If you are in one of these states, I need a single volunteer. If I do not receive one, I will appoint one. I would like to have a person for every state picked by the end of today.
Fancy printed posters and stickers
@everyone **IF YOU ARE GOING TO THE CVILLE EVENT, SEND ME A MESSAGE**
@everyone **If you are interested in participating in some self improvement workshops (done online) being organized by some trusted individuals we work with, DM me.**
*Spots are limited, so first come first served.*
@everyone If you are experienced in video editing, DM me.
@everyone ***IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THIS ORGANIZATION AND ARE ATTENDING THE CHARLOTTESVILLE RALLY, THIS IS YOUR DRESS CODE FOR THE DAY***
Direct message me with any questions.
There have been some guys who's actions have led to rifts within the organization. Many of these guys are acting on misunderstandings and misinformation.
If you have any doubts or questions about anything you've heard, shoot me a message. I've been finding my way back home from Cville with vehicular troubles, but I'm always available to text or talk with anyone who may have concerns.
It would be best to understand both sides of an issue before making any potentially risky decisions. That goes for anything.
If you haven't heard about this stuff, carry on. We've had a lot of great work done and I am so happy I got to see all of you who came to meet us.
About the issue with the man who ran into protestors in his car. He was certainly not a member, and no one with us knows him. Our shields were given widely to anyone at the rally, as we had many extras.
There is no criminal conspiracy about handing a person a piece of wood and agreeing on fashion. Legally, we have been in contact with folks with legal experience and we're fine.
As far as PR, yes it's bad. But last week they called us "evil white supremacist nazi killers" and today they're calling us the same thing. Shrug it off. It's the opinions of those who want you dead.
@everyone Very important meeting TOMORROW starting at 5 p.m. Central in <#314228481804468235> , make it if you can

***YOU HAVE 72 HOURS TO MESSAGE @Alexander TX AND TELL HIM WHAT YOU'VE BEEN DOING TO HELP THE MOVEMENT.***
***IF YOU DO NOT MESSAGE @Alexander TX IN THE NEXT 72 HOURS, YOU WILL BE SUBJECT TO EXPULSION.***
***IF YOU ARE THINKING "THIS DOESN'T APPLY TO ME," THINK AGAIN. IT DOES.***
@everyone We are going to be doing the first of many regular group readings, ***starting today with the formation of several groups among you.*** You will be told if you are the leader of one of these groups of 4 or 5, and if you are not, your group leader will then inform you of the instructions and what your duty is.
***We're starting very plain and simple with our manifesto. Something everyone should read, be familiar with, and discuss regardless.***
__STAY TUNED FOR INSTRUCTIONS COMING FROM ME, IF YOU ARE A GROUP LEADER, OR YOUR GROUP LEADER, IF YOU ARE NOT__
@everyone ***YOU MUST ALWAYS, I REPEAT, ALWAYS CHECK DIRECT MESSAGES FROM PEOPLE. ESPECIALLY PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THIS SERVER WITH YOU.***
***WE ARE STARTING A BOOK CLUB, THE FIRST OF MANY, YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONTACTED BY YOUR CLUB DIRECTOR. ANSWER THEM IMMEDIATELY.***
@here I need a location on all members. I am making a map that will allow us to coordinate events and meet ups. Please find the county (oradjacent county if people are not comfortable sending their county) and state of your people. I need this'll information by next Wednesday, the 20th.
