Embracing Life

As you consider your charitable end-of-year giving, please consider donating to pro-life organizations by participating in Give to the Max Day on Wednesday, November 16, hosted by GiveMN–it doubles your dollars!

You can amplify your giving impact in a number of ways:

· Win a Golden Ticket! $1,000 will be given to a random donor’s charity every hour. You could be that donor!

· NEW THIS YEAR… $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000 prize grants will be awarded to the top three small nonprofit organizations – with budgets under $750,000 – which receive the most dollars on Give to the Max Day.

List of some great pro-life organizations

Below are some organizations you may want to consider (I will add to the list as I receive the proper information):

Total LifeCare Centers–Please click here for information on how to donate to this life-affirming organization. It’s so easy to give!

  • Because of you, TLC was able to help thousands of women. Last year, TLC affiliates provided over 24,000 services to women and families. The Centers also performed over 1,400 free ultrasounds, which allowed mothers and fathers to see and bond with their preborn children. Your gift will help them save more babies from abortion and make a huge difference in their work.

Cradle of Hope–Please click here to donate to this beautiful organization (This will bring you to their FaceBook page.) It’s very simple, plus, you’ll be able to view a YouTube video of a happy baby in one of their cribs.

  • Cradle of Hope provides financial assistance to pregnant women and to women with infants under three months old. For many, they are a source of last resort. Their Safe Slumber Program distributes Pack N Play portable cribs to provide a safe and comfortable sleeping environment for infants – and they are a symbol of joy for mothers. Give them the chance to gain even more support with your gift.

 

Thank you! Your generosity helps families to embrace life!

About Kathy Schneeman

After graduating from The College of St. Thomas, I taught at Nativity in St. Paul until our oldest was just about born in the classroom (What a great lesson on life that would have been for my students!) I then became a stay-at-home-mom while teaching religious education classes and working very part time at UST. Recently, I served as the Archdiocese's Life Coordinator in the Office for Marriage, Family and Life until twins arrived (I was almost 43!) When I have a few minutes of quiet time, I like to run, eat chocolates, scones and Mexican food (that's why I run), read, and have a beverage with my husband at night. We have a whopping nine kids (yes...same husband and same wife; we get that question a lot!) and we attend St. Joseph's in West St. Paul--where we first met when we were in grade school.
