Friends, we only have four days remaining in the effort my site CatholicMom.com has undertaken to help pregnant moms who have chosen life and are being served through crisis pregnancy centers. Here’s the blueprint:
CatholicMom.com and Ave Maria Press are partnering on this Lenten project to provide spiritual support to expectant mothers. We hope to send 50 copies of A Catholic Mother’s Companion to Pregnancy—a week-by-week spiritual companion for pregnant women—to 20 pregnancy centers around the United States. Your donations will be used solely to help us achieve this goal. For each $10 donation one book will be sent to a pregnancy center.
In the video below, you’ll here Sarah Reinhard, the author of A Catholic Mother’s Companion to Pregnancy, describe this project:
It may turn out that our original goal of giving away 1,000 copies of Sarah’s book to moms who have chosen life under challenging circumstances will prove to lofty — I won’t declare that until the clock runs out on Sunday. But even if that happens, I still have the amazing joy of knowing that — to date — we will have helped over 350 women achieve a more spiritually healthy pregnancy by enabling them to journey with our Blessed Mother along their path to childbirth.
There is still time for you to help. A gift of any size given at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-catholicmom-com-project?c=home will go directly to help buy books. And to answer any doubt you may have, the publisher Ave Maria Press is not only offering this book at a reduced price, but also paying all associated shipping fees. Sarah is not profiting in any way from this project — aside from the joy she obviously feels at helping so many women. And as for me, I am just happy to be along for the ride.
