WOO-HOO! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED!
Here's our numbers update:
In case you're coming to this for the first time...
Ave Maria Press and CatholicMom.com have partnered to provide spiritual support for pregnant women this Lent. Our goal is to raise enough money to send 50 books to 20 pregnancy centers around the United States. For each $10, one book will be sent to a pregnancy center.
Is 500 too high a goal for this week?
That would be our halfway point (though, admittedly, 1000 was a big, huge goal to begin with). And we're halfway through Lent, so...why not?
Will you be part of the project?
Give to the project through our Indiegogo page or by check, sent to Ave Maria Press, Attn: Karey Circosta, P.O. Box 428, Notre Dame, IN 46556.
Can you help?
- Have you given? If so, thank you. If not, can you spare $1, $5, or even $10? You can give online at Indiegogo or send a check (address and information at the end of this post). If not, that's okay. No guilt from me! You can support the project in other ways, like...
- Can you spread the word? Post to Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Write about it on your blog. Put an announcement in your parish bulletin. Ask your diocesan paper to include the press release in the next issue. Write me and let me know how I can help you spread the word. We have no marketing budget on this, so it's completely crowdsourcing.
- Would you please pray for this project? There's a lot going on in our Church and the world right now. I know that. This little project is a drop in the bucket...but for the women it will touch, the bucket is the whole world. Please, offer a Hail Mary, a Memorare, or a heartfelt prayer for God's will for our endeavor.
Many, many thanks! I am beyond blessed and truly humbled by this project.
