Red Envelopes CampaignPlease join me in sending Congress the message that abortion is not healthcare.
Last year I shared a dream I had about red envelopes flooding the White House. To my surprise, it resulted in over 2.5 million red envelopes overwhelming the mailroom of the White House. More importantly, it got many individuals involved in the Pro-Life movement who felt that they had been disenfranchised. Most stunning of all, these millions of red envelopes were generated without a central organization, a public relations firm, or a budget. It was men, women, and children who care about life that made it happen.
Sadly, the mainstream media ignored this story, even though the Washington Post was aware of the campaign, and members of Congress contacted me personally. At the time, the mainstream media outlets I spoke to refused to cover the story. More tragically, the President and his party continue to advance the expansion and funding of abortion with your tax dollars. We need your help to create a sea of red in Washington that no one can ignore.
From now until April 4, 2010, please put 3 red letters for life in the mail. You can use an envelope, a postcard, or even a piece of red paper in a white envelope. On your letter for life, write your personal message against the public funding of abortion. Make it simple, and make it red.
Send your three letters to:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Office of the Speaker
H-232, US Capitol
Washington, DC 20515
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
522 Hart Senate Office Bldg
Washington, DC 20510
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
You may also send red letters for life to your congressional delegation. Their addresses can be found here:
Red envelopes can be found at any card store after Valentine's day. You can also purchase red card stock at any craft store. Encourage your parish, church, small group, youth group, or friends to take this project on together. Postcards made of card stock are less expensive to mail. I encourage you to use your creativity, but please do not use this concept for fundraising or to sell a product. Last year the Youtube videos were great!
Send me an email with a photo of your letters for life. I will get these into the alternative media. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
More info can be found here, as it is necessary: http://belonginghouse.org/wordpress/the-letters-for-life/
Forward this email to everyone you know. This will not work unless there is as broad support as possible. Last year this worked because many people offered a hand. Many still don't understand that the internet empowers YOU to speak.
You can make a difference.
And please pray for our nation. We need a rebirth of freedom.
Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins, and the sin of my nation. God, end abortion, and send revival to America.
Thanks for your time, and for your help.

I added the video.
We praise You, All Mighty God and give You thanks for You are good. We love You, Lord and thank you for stirring our hearts to do what is right. Not what man calls "right" in his own eyes but what is "RIGHT" in the sight of God! We pray that Washington, D.C. would be flooded with red envelopes in the next couple of weeks, just like Egypt was overcome by the locusts. To show this nation that abortion is not God's way! Teach us, O Lord, and give us strength to leave our comfort zone to fight for the unborn. In Mighty name of Jesus Christ...Amen!
