We have been busily getting ready for this year's Baby Bottle Campaign and it will be available online as of March 1st! Due to all the restrictions still in place, we have asked if our church friends would like to help us by taking part in one of three ways: a Virtual campaign, an "Old-fashioned" campaign using bottles or a Hybrid of the two.
For churches that are meeting and prefer the familiarity of the bottles, we are happy to provide those! For the churches not meeting, or who feel the need for stricter protocols, virtual campaigns might be the way to go. The campaign can be easily managed by editing the simple webpage we offer each church. Each page features a virtual baby bottle; the church can set it's own goal and watch their baby bottle fill up as donations come in. Easy, touchless and fun! Or, churches can do both and have a hybrid campaign. Even the timing is flexible - the virtual links will be good until late October.
What's new at the center?
We just recently hosted a Zoom webinar on Natural Family Planning with Lily Bounds of St. John Vianney and RN Lindsey Gilmore of Texas. They are teaching the Marquette method, which is a highly effective way to avoid getting pregnant that doesn't involve using hormonal contraceptives. This method is 98.4% accuracy with perfect use and professional guidance, but even with typical use is 98% effective. Many natural methods for family planning have high accuracy with perfect use, but lower percentages with typical use. We are going to continue to offer this to area women and help them to see the drawbacks of using synthetic hormones. Astonishingly, the "pill" is also a level 1 carcinogenic!
Your donations will help us continue to change to meet the needs of the young people in the area. We're looking for "change" for Positive change!
