40 Days for Life Coordinator for Center City Philly
Thank you all so much for your prayers and presence during the 40 days vigil!
It always breaks my heart when I am present there between the vigils. When we leave on Wednesday and know that nobody will be present for the rest of the week... To love, to guide and to stand up for the babies and moms in prayer.
In other towns such as St Louis and Dallas they have achieved 100% coverage between the vigils. They do this by reimbursing the sidewalk counselors. It has been so effective that in Dallas they even managed to break up a Human Trafficking Ring!!!
I so want to see Philadelphia with the same sort of coverage!
On Sunday Dec 4th from 2-5 pm, I am hosting a coach bag bingo and raffle fundraiser at Our Lady Help Of Christians Church parish hall located at 1500 Marian Road in Abington, PA (see map here) to reimburse sidewalk counselors. Everyone is welcome... Women, men, and kids. Tickets are $25 each for a set of 11 rounds of bingo; $30 at the door.
I really, really, REALLY, need your help with this... I need to sell tickets, I'd appreciate any help with set up and clean up after the event...if you know anyone that can donate snacks for sale or raffle baskets that would be awesome too!!!
Please reach out to those you know, if they cannot attend personally please ask if they will sponsor a ticket for a student or someone who can't afford to attend..
