After being contacted by scores of our active duty military clients asking us to do something in response to Terry Jones’s planned “Burn A Koran Day,” MRFF has decided that the most appropriate response would not be to try to stop Jones, but to donate to the Afghan National Army, as a gesture of good will and a statement of opposition to this entirely un-American act of religious bigotry, a new Qur’an for each one destroyed by Jones and his followers.
We need your financial support to help pay for these replacement Qur’ans. Please visit helpbuildthewall.org and make a pledge. Make a fully tax-deductible donation to get a brick in the wall, and enter a custom message on your brick to share your opinion of Terry Jones’s event.

My name is Zachari Klawonn I am a Specialist in the United States Army Stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. As a service member in the United States military who happens to be Muslim I am so thankful that Mikey Weinstein has stood up and condemned the potential “burn a Quran day”. Countless other service members as well as myself who happen to be Muslim are so thankful that there is an organization standing up to this disgusting potential act in the state of Florida. The Military Religious Freedom Foundation continues to stand up in the face of injustice and wrong in today’s world. As a proud service member and Muslim I say THANK YOU MRFF! Through this intense struggle of islamaphobia that we service members are going through, we know that MRFF is going to be there for us and ready to help if needed. Thank you so much!
