U.S. Patriot Bonds

Six-year-old Anastasia Richardson pleads for your support of our soldiers in the fight against terrorism.

Freedom Girls!

Help Anastasia, cover girl for the Patriot Bonds, and the Freedom Girls promote U.S. Savings Bonds. Due to budget cuts, the Savings Bond Program no longer has a marketing department and the Freedom Girls are on a quest to promote U.S. Savings Bonds. They are challenging Americans to purchase U.S. Savings Bonds to support our soldiers fighting the war on terrorism and in memory of 9/11 victims.

Purchasing a savings bond will help our nation financially support the war on terrorism and help curb the financial burden taxpayers will incur. The program is the most cost effective way to borrow money. The current Treasury cost model shows that for every $1 billion borrowed throughout Series EE (Patriot Bonds) and Series I Savings Bonds, $17 million is saved in comparison to cost associated with marketable securities.

Anastasiaís grandmother, Randi Johnson Dale, posed as a child model back in 1944 for a Popular Photography magazine cover promoting War Bonds. Now Randi, along with her daughter Susan, and granddaughter Anastasia, have appeared at Oklahoma county fairs and on street corners in Tulsa to encourage people to buy Savings Bonds.

The Freedom Girls launched this campaign shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Susan Dale says she has spent more than $12,000 of her own money on the campaign. When asked why she was doing this, she said, “We’re in it because we love America.” For more information on the Freedom Girls and U.S. Savings Bonds visit www.usfreedombonds.com.
