Support the Generation Life Golf Outing!

Please see the email below with details on the  Generation Life Golf Outing fundraiser.  While there are many avenues in the pro-life movement:  legislative, prayerful, pregnancy center donations, public rallies, etc., Generation Life’s mission is to get to the root cause of abortion.  Their goal is to educate the younger generations about chastity and try to stop the want or need for an abortion.  They meet young people where they are and proclaim this message.  Gen Life stands outside of abortion centers, speaks at pro-life rallies and most importantly, is a younger voice for the unborn. If you are an armchair golfer, then consider participating through a donation.  If you were impressed by Phil Mickelson’s recent PGA Championship at the age of 50 and want to get back out on the links, then here’s your chance! Either way, please support Generation Life.  It is through their ministry that true change will take place.  

Dear friend,
This week we are not only preparing for our final talks of the school year, but for our most exciting event outside the classroom – the bi-annual Pro-Life Golf Outing!

  Pro-Life Golf Outing
White Manor Country Club
Monday, June 7 Cocktails & Dinner to Follow  

This day of fun, friendship, and food at a top-ranked golf course makes it possible for us to continue spreading the Pro-Life and Chastity messages throughout the school year – and you can help!

An Award Sponsor sends our speakers to neighboring dioceses like New York, Allentown, Wilmington, and more!

  A Hole Sponsor shares the life-affirming message of Chastity with an entire high school student body in the Greater Philadelphia area!

A food sponsor not only nourishes our golfers but enriches a local grade school with a bold and informative Pro-Life presentation!
 
Your support will change the lives of thousands of students in the Archdiocese as well as countless unborn lives. Join us for Mass, meals, and a full day of golf with a friend or a foursome to stand up for the dignity of life while enjoying a beautiful course!

We thank you for your continued support and prayers for our team, students, and mission. With gratitude,

The GenLife Team

Support Pro-Life Charities this #GivingTuesday December 1st

Giving Tuesday is just around the corner as many organizations are always asking people to make a contribution to their organizations before the year draws to a close.

In the midst of the busy shopping season, let us not forget our local and national groups that promote the culture of life near us and beyond. Here are just a few organizations to support:

Adoption and then Quadruplets for the Young family

 

young family

A few months ago I published a story of two women who were in need of prayer because they were being pressured into aborting.  One of these mothers is pregnant with quadruplets.

This mom and her husband are the parents of 5 children, four of whom are adopted.  When they found out they would be adding four more children to their family their doctors began urging ‘pregnancy reduction’.  They have resisted the pressures put on them and are looking forward to welcoming all four of their new babies.

Imagine having 9 children under the age of eight!

You can read more about this family by using this link to their Gofundme page And while there, maybe you could make a small contribution to help them out until Jacob can get back to work?  He has taken an unpaid leave of absence from job to help his wife.

The Price is Wrong When You Fundraise for Planned Parenthood

Many of us have grown up to watch the most popular game show The Price is Right. From Bob Barker to Drew Carey, the show has spanned for nearly half a century.

During an airing of a special show, RuPaul, a celebrity known for his drag queen shows came on the show to have the winnings of each prize matched by the producers to go to Planned Parenthood.

This is despicable. Why would they fundraise for an organization that murders innocent children for more than a century in the name of eugenics, population control, and women’s rights and call it “charity”?

Read more about it here

In response to this, I am asking everyone to counter this by participating in the Culture Project’s giving campaign that is tomorrow (5/12) and Wednesday (5/13).

In addition, you are asked to take part in the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia area’s fundraiser that ends on May 15th.

Feeling ambitious? Learn about other organizations that are more worthy of your contribution here.

 

 

Mother’s Day Fundraiser

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.
WATCH THE VIDEO AND DONATE HERE:
https://guidingstar.causevox.com 

     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!
WATCH THE VIDEO AND DONATE HERE:
https://guidingstar.causevox.com 
     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.
