The "Red Envelope Project"

On Tuesday morning, during our ladies weekly Bible study, we had a guest speaker come in and share with us about the "Red Envelope Project". I was not aware of this project before, but after she finished introducing us to it, I was excited and couldn't wait to participate!!! I wanted to post this information on my blog in hopes that others who read this and are passionate about pro-life will consider participating too! It really is so easy, but the impact we could make together is HUGE!!! Go here to read more, then follow the directions below!!!

Here is all you have to do:

Get a red envelope. You can buy them at Kinkos, or at party supply stores. On the front, address it to:

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W.
Washington , D.C. 20500

Seal the envelope and on the back, write the following message.

This envelope represents one child who died in abortion. It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the world. Responsibility begins with conception.

Even you, President Obama, stated during the National Prayer Breakfast " There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being."

Put it in the mail, and send it. Then send this website to every one of your friends who you think would send one too. I wish we could send 50 million red envelopes, one for every child who died before having a a chance to live. Maybe it will change the heart of the president.

I've seen this somewhere else and I think it is such an awesome idea. I'm going to send my envelope and I'm going to post this on my blog too. Maybe we can all band together to get the message across!
