Freedom's Light Charity Program

gbThe Freedom's Light Charity Program provides continued support to military families, first responders, and children impacted by the Global War on Terror.  We do this by volunteering our time and distributing a portion of ABS profits among charity organizations.   

Also, as part of the Freedom's Light Charity Program, Pat Curran (ABS Founder) invites all to join him in his yearly "Hero's Journey Challenge." It's for those looking for a renewed sense of purpose, direction, and motivation for achieving their dreams.

So, what about you?  Are you looking to rekindle that fire from within?  Do you have a challenging goal that just seems just out of reach?   If so, take our "Hero's Journey Challenge!"  Contact  

Weekly notes provide focus, motivation, and structure to keep a reader on track for achieving their goals.  Also, they remind us of our "hero traits" and the values that made our country free.  Those who benefit from participating in the challenge are simply asked to donate to any of the charities below.
