Hi everyone, it’s time for another challenge! Last time, I wrote to you about pro-life crisis pregnancy centers and their necessary work. Another group of organizations, instrumental in the educational side of the pro-life movement, are “right-to-life” associations. As you may know, I am a board member of the Toronto Right to Life Association, which uses education as a means of “providing a sure and certain voice regarding the care and protection of the unborn, women hurt by abortion, the infirm, persons with disabilities and the aged.” In other words, we teach people about the importance of life!
Right to life associations exist across the country and are changing the culture around them. But many of them are primarily volunteer organizations and have limited funds to complete their work. Well, I think that It’s time to give these groups some credit and thank them for what they do!
This week’s challenge will be to organize a fundraiser for your local right-to-life association, whether among your family, your homeschool group, your Church, etc. Here is a list of a few groups to get you started:
New Brunswick: http://nbrighttolife.ca/new/
Prince Edward Island: peirighttolife.ca
British Columbia: http://unitedforlifebc.ca
Canada-wide: National Right to Life Committee
The fundraiser is not just about giving the groups a donation. We hope that you also take this opportunity to become aware of the kind of work that your local right-to-life organization does. Maybe you will be inspired to volunteer yourself!
