On our last post ( February 15th)  we cited a number of reasons  for the Pro-life movement to have hope.

One new project  mentioned was the Red Envelope Project. We got an email from  a 30 year Catholic school teacher who receives our newsletter who thought that this would be an ideal project for schools. My immediate response was ‘what a great idea’.  This is a perfect project not only for Catholic and Christian schools but also for Youth Groups and Confirmation programs.

I would urge those of you who know Catholic and Christian school teachers and Youth group coordinators to propose this project to them. Send them a link to the Red Envelope Project.  Click here for the link.

In order for this endeavor  to be successful we need to get lots of people to send 1, 10 and even more envelopes to the President.

This idea is catching on – here are some links.

One blog on family life called Parenting Freedom suggests this as a great family project.

Hawaii Right to Life and the Illinois Federation for Right to Life both spotlight the Red Envelope Project on their internet news sites. I know that Shield of Roses sent me an email alert about this project.  If you run a Right to Life newsletter or e-alert you might consider mentioning this idea in it.

Many blogs like Holy Innocents Blog, Joyful Days, Jill Stanek, American Papist, the Brown Pelican Society of  Louisiana, Confessions of a Catholic Mom, Overheard in the Sacristy, and  Da Mihi Animas to name a few have highlighted this project.

It is also getting  some news coverage, Life News.com, Examiner.com, World Christian Press , Free Republic , Catholic.net , DFW Catholic, and the National Catholic Register.

The Red Envelope Project is trying to keep track of how many envelopes people have  sent – click here to go to their site and let them know how many envelopes you have sent.

On their site they say that over 1 million 688 thousand envelopes have been sent so far.
