May Thanksgiving bring you wonderful memories!
For many of the moms at Good Counsel, it’s not that way. The holidays are a painful reminder that their families kicked them out because they refused to have an abortion. Thanks to you, staff and the other moms living in the home are their family now. Your generous support provides a loving and nurturing home, nutritious meals, consistent medical attention, training, education, the tools of self-sufficiency – and most of all, God’s love and hope for the future.
Right now, many desperate moms are turning to Good Counsel for help. The need is serious! You know the costs of meals, formula, baby clothes, and doctor visits are high. Which is why I’m asking for your help today.
For $25 a baby will have formula for more than one week
$150 provides childcare for almost two weeks
$300 affords childcare for about one month
A mom like Gillian, 4 months pregnant, whose mother found Good Counsel because her apartment was too tiny for even two adults, and would be more difficult when the baby was born. Gillian was relieved and delighted, “Good Counsel has been a Godsend. From the first day, I was happy to be in a new place and start a new life. The other moms are like sisters to me. We are all family here!” As you read these words, our resources are stretched to the breaking point. So I ask you today, please give an online gift right now.
As the apostle Paul wrote to his friends in 2 Corinthians 9:11 (NAB): “You are being enriched in every way for all generosity, which through us produces thanksgiving to God.”
On Thanksgiving Day, the moms and I will bow our heads in prayer, thanking God for you. As you celebrate with those you love, you can rejoice that a newborn baby is alive today because you supported Good Counsel.
Thank you! God bless you!
Good Counsel Executive Director
