The following is from Tom Steven, Director of the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia regarding this year’s mother’s day fundraiser that typically takes place across the churches in the Greater Philadelphia area.
We hope this email finds you well! How are you, your family, your parish, and your respect life activities, if any?
Due to the unanticipated cancellation of parish Masses this Mother’s Day, the Pro-Life Union is unable to distribute roses, baby bottles, and Mother’s Day Newsletters as we normally do. We love giving roses to moms and are very disappointed (in addition to being disappointed by not being able to attend Mass!).
Mother’s Day baby bottle drives and rose sales are typically a significant fundraiser for Guiding Star Ministries maternity home and for the Pro-Life Union. This May without our Mother’s Day campaign, we are left with the next best option — to try to raise funds via online fundraising (see below).
Please share via your parish email distribution list or in your parish bulletin if you are able. Thank you for your support! Please see below and share.
This Mother’s Day, Help These Moms who Chose Life! Give a gift in honor of your mom, or your mom’s mom, or in honor of someone who helped your mom along the way. Join our Mother’s Day Campaign for moms and children. All proceeds benefit Guiding Star Ministries, a home for single pregnant moms and their children.
Each year on Mother’s Day, the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia gives out thousands of roses in honor of moms on their special day, and hosts baby bottle drives in churches throughout Greater Philadelphia. It is a significant fundraising event for Guiding Star Ministries and enables us to provide a safe, beautiful home to single pregnant women and their children who are at risk of homelessness. This year due to the Covid-19 quarantine we are unable to host our fundraising campaign — so we are going virtual!
Thank you for being a part of this very important fundraising campaign! Our goal is to raise $25,000. Please share it with some friends.
NOTE: This fundraiser will run until Friday, May 15th.
