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.

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.

     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.

Fashion for Life Online Show

Breaking Fashion News:

Thursday, April 30th, Hollywood had an all-day Fundraiser on Instagram for Planned Parenthood organized by Hollywood’s most glamorous and fun stars. Headlining names like Jenny Slate, Nikki Glaser, Elizabeth Banks, and The Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead led the star-studded day-long event to save abortion in the middle of the COVID pandemic.
They claim pro-life officials are using the virus to block access to abortion, and that those who perform the procedures are suffering with “increased costs related to the pandemic such as payroll for staff and purchasing supplies.”

One Instagram post of tens of thousands read “You rocked it! Your support of abortions is essential. Thank you for standing with us.”

“Curious how killing humans and donating to organizations that do so are helping save lives during this pandemic. Shouldn’t Hollywood be raising funds for emergency room workers, hospitals and food banks during the coronavirus?” – COL1972 Co-founder & Chief Designer Carla D’Addesi

“This is why we created and launched COL1972. A fashion brand that is going where no other brand has gone before. We are leading for life in pop-culture. They glamorize abortion, we will design and work harder to glamorize life.” – COL1972 Co-founder & Chief Designer Carla D’Addesi

COL1972 is countering the April 30th event by having an online Fashion Show TONIGHT Friday May 1. COL1972 has joined Dr. Monique Ruberu, Pro-Life OBGYN, and others to give back to Dr. Ruberu’s life-affirming medical practice which provides FREE care to women in need not only during COVID but every day.

Use CODE: LLL and Dr. Monique’s Medical Practice will receive 30% of every sale made 5/1 & 5/2.

THANK YOU FOR STANDING WITH COL1972 & BEING PASSIONATE ABOUT LEADING FOR LIFE IN POP CULTURE AND FASHION. WE ARE GLAMORIZING LIFE TOGETHER. LIFE IS ALWAYS IN STYLE.

Culture Project Daysofgiving

The following is a message from Cristina Barba, President, and Foundress of the Culture Project

This spring, the world has found itself at a unique and challenging moment. In this time of stay at home orders and school closures, the mission of The Culture Project has been challenged to find new ways to reach young people with the message of integrity, chastity, and the value of human life. Your ongoing support has enabled us to have the technology, staff, creativity, and flexibility to adapt, using new live digital programming and innovative video strategies.

If there’s ever a time to give to The Culture Project, this is it.

We know now, more than ever, that nothing is guaranteed. Even should we be able to resume life as “usual,” curveballs can arise at any time. The Culture Project is dedicated to always finding a way, but your help is critical for making sure we are equipped to do so.

On May 12th and 13th we will be hosting our second annual Days of Giving: a unique opportunity for you to support The Culture Project and have your gift make double the impact. A generous donor has committed to match donations received during the Days of Giving up to $25,000! 

A gift from you will help us close the mission year strong and to keep dreaming and planning big for the next year. Finding our status quo challenged in every aspect of the mission – from outreach to training to missionary support – we remain certain that the message of life, love, and virtue can and will renew the culture, and we will do everything we can to spread that message.

Days of Giving will be crucial for The Culture Project’s ability to grow and to continue its critical mission: proclaiming the dignity of the human person and the richness of living sexual integrity.

Visit here to give to the organization on May 12th and 13th.
