FRONT ROYAL, Va., Dec. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to connect Rednecks across the country, and maximize collective benefits for the large affinity group a Virginia entrepreneur launched the 'American Redneck Society' last week.
"I really felt that American Rednecks are an under-served, but large population that could benefit from a formal membership organization structure," said American Redneck Society Executive Director, Rob Clayton.
For a minimal $20 membership fee – card-carrying Rednecks have access to thousands of discounts from retailers across the country. Additionally, 10 percent of every membership is donated to a Redneck Scholarship Fund that's aimed at expanding the educational opportunities available to rural youth.
"We're embracing the idea that the Redneck concept can be humorous," Clayton said. "But Rednecks are a group of Americans who share common characteristics and have common needs. This Society can embody those characteristics and help meet those needs."
According to its web site the American Redneck Society, "Aims to shine the light on positive characteristics of redneck culture. One such characteristic is a love of country and respect for core American values . . . those held by our founding fathers, not liberals in politics and media. For these reasons, the American Redneck Society's motto is: "Sense of Country, Sense of Humor."
Members receive an American Redneck Society membership card, bumper sticker and instant access to retail discounts. Potential members can join at www.americanrednecksociety.com. Additionally, potential members can purchase gift memberships for fellow Rednecks affording friends and family the same benefits of being a card-carrying Redneck.
