RESTORING THE HUMAN SPIRIT
As believers in “malice toward none and charity for all,” we’re dedicated to providing love and aid to those in need, supporting those who find themselves in crisis situations. Over the past eight years, we’ve offered aid to those in the path of disaster and we’ve supported initiatives to end domestic abuse, sex slavery, and human trafficking. We’ve also funded veteran initiatives and focused on rescuing, restoring, and rebuilding the lives of Christians and other persecuted religious minorities in the Middle East.

Operation Game Changer March 2017
In our effort to disrupt global human trafficking, we partnered with DeliverFund in an initiative called Operation Game Changer, which was aimed at uncovering and eradicating human trafficking networks in and around Super Bowl LI. During the operation, DeliverFund worked with Houston law enforcement, providing them with actionable tips that led law enforcement agents to human traffickers and their victims. As a result of DeliverFund’s efforts, 44 human trafficking targets were generated and two national networks were identified, among other successes.

National statistics show that a staggering 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will experience domestic violence at some point in their lives. The abuse typically escalates over time and coincides with feelings of fear and shame on the part of the victim, making it difficult for them to come forward and seek help. Mercury One partner Hope’s Door is dedicated to the intervention and prevention of domestic and sexual abuse, providing hope and healing to victims and their children through a number of different programs. In one year alone, the nonprofit served 21,000 meals, provided almost 7,000 hours of counseling, and sheltered over 375 women and children.

Thousand Oaks, California Shooting 2018
On Wednesday night, a gunman identified as a 28-year-old former Marine entered a crowded country and western dance hall in Thousand Oaks, California and opened fire, killing 12 people and injuring many others. This is the deadliest shooting in Southern California since 14 people were killed in 2015’s San Bernardino terrorist attack. Last night’s senseless massacre is also reminiscent of the Las Vegas country music festival shooting that took the lives of 58 people just over a year ago.
Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting 2018
On Saturday morning, a gunman with a history of making anti-Semitic threats entered Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue and opened fire, killing 11 people and injuring six others, four of whom were police officers. The massacre is now being hailed as one of the worst attacks against the Jewish community in the United States in decades. Our hearts break for the people of the Tree of Life community and for those throughout the Pittsburgh area who are experiencing devastation as a result of this attack.
