We refer to anyone who voluntarily serves their community, state, or nation, despite any differences of opinion, as "common patriots". These are the everyday heroes that are the strength of this great nation.
Common Patriots was founded to assist Boy Scout troops around Fort Bend county, Texas, with management of flag subscription services. To raise funds in support of their programs, troops provide flag subscription services in many neighborhoods around Sugar Land. Services typically include setting a US flag in your yard in the morning and retrieving it in the evening, during several national holidays per year. Common Patriots provides a directory so that customers can contact the troop that provides services to their address.
The goal of Common Patriots is to develop a directory and other "IT services" that could support many types of territory-based fund raisers for non-profit organizations. Membership is free but limited to charitable organizations.
