Many Have Asked What I Want for Christmas. Here It Is …

For those who know me, they know “I think big.” For example, we have grown a “United States Grace Force[1]” to nearly 50,000 “believing” Catholics. On October 7, 2018, there were 1300 prayer sites around the nation, and 57 countries participating. YES! It’s time to “unite” and become a “force to be reckoned with.” I’M GOING IN!

The same holds true in the war against the culture of death: We must become a force to be reckoned with!!

A little over a year ago, Mr. Colin O’Keefe, a very talented, young executive – who is a parishioner of mine – approached me to say he felt called to somehow make a difference in the pro-life mission. Because I think big, I challenged him to try to unite pro-lifers around the country into major, concerted action. I saw something special in Colin, and felt he was just the person to pull this off. Amazingly, he took me up on it! (You can read his amazing story HERE[2]).

Over the past year, Colin has devoted 100% of his time to developing this “force to be reckoned with.” The title is “Tipping Point[3].” I love this name because, for me, it indicates that point in which the “Culture of Life” finally overtakes … becomes more powerful and present in our nation than the “culture of death.”

[4]Here are the facts: Planned Parenthood raised $399.7M in donations while the 20 largest national pro-life nonprofits raised only $71.7M. Congress won’t defund abortion, but if one percent of Americans gave one percent of their income to pro-life, we could OUT-fund abortion.

Many executives of small pro-life nonprofits work long hours saving lives, have no time for fundraising, and are chronically underfunded. Let’s stop waiting. It is OUR responsibility as pro-life donors to find THEM.

“Tipping Point” is created to promote these groups and assist them in raising the funds necessary to OUT-fund abortion and do the work of creating a culture of life.

Here is the Christmas gift I would love!! …

It’s the time of year for both gift-giving and budgeting! Put pro-life giving in your budget for next year. Outside of our Church itself, pro-life is the most important cause in the world today. Give habitually to pro-life as part of your tithe. If someone looked at your bank or credit card statement, would they know you’re pro-life? We pay monthly for our living expenses: mortgage, electric, gas, even phone, internet, and cable TV. But do we give monthly that others might live?

Across the whole pro-life movement, one life is saved for roughly every $1,500 donated. Most of us can’t afford $1,500 at once—but if you start a monthly gift of $50 today, you can save a baby every 2.5 years for the rest of your life.

Tipping Point affords you the opportunity for a regular monthly gift to all the pro-life charities you support in one place, simplifying your finances and your email inbox and snail mail inbox—help end wasteful direct mail!

“Tipping Point” is AMAZING!!
