Happy Thanksgiving to YOU, KRLA and Educational Foundation Friends. This post brings good news on some current outreaches.
Nearly two months ago, our 23rd Annual Golf Outing was enjoyed by many pro-life supporters, and new friends came, too! This event supports our mission to educate the public on the cause of LIFE, especially in regards to reaching moms and saving the babies.
With the overturning of Roe in June of 2022, our Kentucky Court battles and the current cultural confusion, we are acutely aware of an even greater urgency now placed on our advocacy and educational outreach.
In the past year, we committed time and listened closely to young woman to better understand why they have felt terminating the life of their child was the answer to their situation. Many were scared, and often felt coerced or pressured by their traffickers, friends, or the baby’s father. In our conversations, we learned most did not really want to take their baby’s life, but felt at that moment hopeless, their futures were bleak, and they felt they had nowhere to turn.
In 2023, we expanded our advocacy and education footprint under the robust theme: Loving Them Both - With Every Woman, For Every Child.
In August we announced and launched two SIGNIFICANT Initiatives:
- SAFE HAVEN BABY RESCUE BOXES - THE RIGHT TO LIFE EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION OF KENTUCKY committed to provide each of our Right to Life Chapters throughout Kentucky up to a $1000 match to assist our Chapters in supporting their community’s effort to raise the funds for a Safe Haven Baby Box.
- HER FUTURE - PREGNANT & PARENTING SCHOLARSHIPS - No mother, no matter her age, should feel she has to choose between her education and her baby's life. She still has a world of opportunity ahead of her, and it is important to be there to support her to embrace a future that may now include motherhood and a degree.
The Right to Life Educational Foundation of Kentucky committed and blessed Her Future Scholarships with generous institutional double-it-match of $50,000. We launched a challenge match goal of $100,000 to assist Moms who choose life to continue their education, securing a bright future for them and their baby. Our “Love Them Both” Phase I Goal was set at $50,000. Sponsors and Golfers, we are excited to share that because of your faithful generosity and support, YOU DID IT! The 2023 Tee Off Fore Life Charity Golf Outing raised $50,000!
Special thanks to Mike Ryan and Dennis Corley for making the event happen!
Blessings and Thank You Again!
