Easter Seals and Charities
We have been having a social impact by investing time and money into our community since we opened. Our focus has not been on the papyrus printed amongst the humans called currency, in various colors, nor bags of 30 pieces of silver. We believe that companies should be formed to make money and then help others on earth.
Brian Dunn - a crippled Marine left to die
Alone for Christmas
Plastic Army men and women never seen
Disfigured women veterans
The Polar Bear Plunge
Chefs Marti and Stormy Mongiello have taken a powerful and active role in high visibility charities across the United States of America, Europe and Asia spanning decades of hard work. Most recently, their companies have provided over 500 donations of room nights, cooking classes and financial gifts to veterans and charities of all kinds. Their primary focus has been on veterans since they are both disabled themselves and registered as disabled veterans with the Department of Veterans Affairs. The names of the charities are too long to list (many publicly thank The Inn of the Patriots on Facebook) and would bore most humans - thus allowing God to keep the master tally (phew! - thank you God).

Giving up Christmas
Marching with veterans
A local disappearance and tragedy
Injured Marine helped to walk again
The Mongiello Holdings, LLC companies, endorsed and joined www.buyveteran.com and NAVOBA.
In May the primary landlord of the property (and owner) suddenly went bankrupt, and the Mongiello's were faced with attending the foreclosure auction of the mansion they had been leasing for so many years. Being in an awkward position with bookings into 2014 - they bought the property on the sidewalk of the Cleveland County Courthouse with a $7,500.00 down check. Doctor Dean and Anne Ornish stepped in as good friends and paid the rest of the fee off immediately. The Mongiello's then secured an SBA loan via the pro-veteran, Home Loan Investment Bank with Ocean Capital and Daniel Murphy. The Mongiello's repaid the Ornish family with interest and heralded them for saving their home, business, and operation. Dean said it best when he said, "pay it forward!" In 2019 we paid off the SBA loan 20-years early
Working to help Easter Seals
Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN)
Cancer Services of Gaston County
ASMBA Star Foundation
We also visited Camp Luck for children with heart replacements and heart challenges, financed and supported the entire Black Hero Celebration and Dedication Day of Ishmael Titus on the Charlotte Walk of Fame. We opened up and funded the Catawba Nation Hero Painting of Captain Redhead who helped create America (released in February 2016).
In August, we supported the Kings Mountain Farmers Market with a Kid's Cooking Class donated to raise awareness of farming. We had previously donated a class to the market earlier in the year, and it went well.
The murder of a local, little girl
In 2018, the entire family returned from Chicago and placed a bright lamp into the flowers of the property. They spread Jordyn's ashes onto the Carolina coastal waters. They attended the murder trial of the child each day and the full judgment of life in prison for the man who killed the child. The family stayed at The Inn of the Patriots in Grover, NC, again with financial assistance provided by the Mongiello's and filmed the full statement of anger, hurt, and sorrow, to WCCB and Morgan Fogarty. If you would like to see Josh's full interview and the full-sized drawing, click here.
The drawing shown here depicts the ideas of Chef Marti shared with the family. It has been comforting to know that in all things of the universe, God makes everything right. His son, the Christ, took Jordyn to Disneyworld and arranged for her to enjoy the exclusive, $4800.00 per night Princess Suite in the middle castle. Jordyn has grown and aged while staying for close to two years. What has been particularly lovely is the golden carriage picks her up in the mornings she would like to go around the park. For the first few weeks, that carriage was at the front gates every day! In the time after that, Jordyn's interest waned, and time staying in has grown. Sleeping is something no longer used or needed in heaven, as is controlling the intake of sweets, McDonald's every day, weight gain, illness, or disease. Mostly, it's a full-on, whole hog, strap on a feed bag, all-day long with sodas and pies festival. I ask you what kid doesn't enjoy dessert?! And the bakers have been overjoyed to send tray after tray up on silver wheeled carts.
Many may be shocked to see how she has aged with her new step-dad by her side, Jesus Christ, the Lord, our God. Christ was the first to greet her when she walked in. He gave her instantaneous wisdom and knowledge, universal comprehension of what had happened and how her second life would begin, bewilderment was removed with any loneliness, or, "where am I and who are you with the hairy face?" (first documented words out of her mouth). Christ smiled and touched her mind without his hand and spoke in the quiet of power and gentleness. "I am the power, and in charge of everything, I am the alpha and the omega who rides on a white steed with my blood-drenched cape, and I allow and see all until I say what will and what will not, child." Jordyn was imparted with all-seeing and childish meetings of family members who were surprised themselves to be meeting her so soon.
"We had expected to be meeting John next, admittedly, in some time to come but not your child," stated Christ. "Here are your aunts and uncles, cousins, and family, and this process of meeting and spending time with each can take up to ten of the earth years to complete. Typically, a person will then move on to finding and visiting for months at a time with famed humans in the history of your particular planet, that is called the earth."
The diamonds on the carriage glisten in the early morning sun still to pick up Jordyn. Generally reserved for the evening Disney parade, Jordyn has even just ridden around in it during the day, waving to other children. And here is a beautiful fact of kindness - she has surprised families and children by often calling for the carriage to stop! Isn't it heartwarming to know the truth that an invitation to come on and get in has occurred, and it happened numerous times. How kind, how loving. Thank you, sweetheart, for sharing with others.
(This drawing was commissioned for free by Martin CJ Mongiello to express his ideas and thoughts about Jordyn, and he is not a medium or claims to be any kind of visionist. Krister Gustafsson of Australia completed the drawing for free in a love offering listening to the sights and sounds of Marti, and both men love children. They are working on an advanced daycare center for children that embraces love, kindness, imagination, and the gift of creation and play. It can be seen at www.magicgarden.life as part of the efforts in advertising and marketing clients they help every day via Mongiello Associates Strategic Marketing Firm at www.mongielloassociates.com ). This drawing is a gift to the family and humankind.
In 2018, William McMullen, a local of Bessemer City, NC (who had cheated with his new girlfriend (Jaylene) on the biological father, Josh Kinnett), was convicted of murder for beating the baby to death with life imprisonment and no parole.
