The Red Envelope Project

This is a quiet, but powerful, movement a number of people are participating in to make an impact on the White House regarding the importance of human life.

It is very quick and easy to do and will prayerfully make an impact. I wanted to get it out now since red envelopes will be available in abundance this weekend!

In keeping with the powerful image of the red LIFE tape, an empty red envelope will send a message to Barack Obama that there is moral outrage in this country over the issue of abortion. It will be quiet, but clear.

Here is what to do: Get a red envelope. You can buy them at Kinkos or at party supply stores. Or, if you're sending a valentine card that came with a red envelope, put the card in a white envelope and use the red one for this project.

On the front, address it to:

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington, D.C.

On the back, write the following message:

This envelope represents one child who died in abortion.
It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the
world. Responsibility begins with conception.

Put it in the mail and send it. (Some have set the date of March 31.) Then forward this email to every one of your friends who you think would send one too. I wish we could send 50 million red envelopes, one for every child who died before having a a chance to live. Maybe it will change the heart of the President.
