Send One of Us to The World Congress of Families


If you're like me...you've got lots to do today.  You've got kids to drop off at school, lunches to make, groceries to buy, laundry to fold, homework to maneuver, and dinner to conjure.   

You've got so much going on that you probably don't have time to travel to Sydney to attend the World Congress of Families...to help guide international efforts to help strengthen the family.

But you know who does have time and easy access?  Our friend Angela Fallentine, who you've heard from recently on this blog about her experience testifying about The Family Proclamation in front of the New Zealand Parliament.

You know what she does NOT have?  Enough money to buy entrance into the congress and airfare.

So what do we say:  Women and mothers who read my blog and who care so very much about family, would we like to send one of our very own over to this conference, to represent our love of family, to report back to us what is spoken there, and to help inspire others to strengthen families?

We can do it...and it's going to be so easy.  

Please go DONATE whatever amount you can to Angela's fund at:


CLICK ON THE LINK ABOVE TO DONATE.

It is easy as pie.

IF we can manage to raise the funds for Angela to attend, (which I have no doubt that we will) Angela will act as our "special correspondent in the field."  

She will:

1.  Provide us with guest posts and updates from the conference.  
2.  Send us summaries of each speaker.
3.  TAKE OUR QUESTIONS and concerns to influential leaders at the conference.
4.  Create youtube compilations of the addresses to be shared by us on social media sites.
5.  Work to inspire others to catch the vision of preserving the family.

OK, I REALLY HAVEN'T ASKED YOU GUYS FOR ANYTHING IN A REALLY LONG TIME! So I'm calling in the troops...Service Boot Campers out there, you are being called up.  If every one of my readers donated just ONE DOLLAR...Angela would have the money that she needs TODAY.  I don't mean to be all PBS-y on you this morning...but isn't is worth a dollar to you?

Let's do this!

  3. Donated! If everyone on the blog just donates $1 or $2 this goal can be attained. Think of those bees in the beehive right?

  4. Now this is a cause I can get behind. I went for $1 for each member of my family and then rounded it up. It may not be much, but every little bit helps.
