A Summer of Support
I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July celebrating our nation’s birthday and the freedoms we hold so dear. It was a delight to ride in my SIXTH parade in Morgan Hill...this year showing off our new Mobile Clinic and our bright and bold RV WRAP (thanks to the Knights of Columbus pictured above - and all of you who donated to make the renovation complete!)
Not only does our new wrap look good out in the community, but we are almost ready to begin taking our Mobile Clinic to women who can’t get to us. Nurse Nancy began her new duties as our Mobile Clinic RN on July 2nd and she is working with Site Director Kathleen to build our teams and research the many options where our services are needed.
Now we need you! Up until now, we have raised every dollar needed to fund our Center and finish the renovation of our Mobile Clinic, but now we must increase our funding for the weekly running of this addition to our Mission.
Summer tends to be a time when non-profits see a dip in giving as donors spend more time and money on fun times and vacations, but I am asking you to make this a summer of increased support for Informed Choices...and we have made it easy for you to GIVE!
To add your support this summer: Just go to https://www.informed-choices.org/donate to make a monthly or one-time donation (using our giving platform OR PayPal.) Do you do a lot of online shopping? Choose Informed Choices as your charity at https://www.smile.amazon.com and we will receive 5% of your purchases. While you are on Amazon, check out our Wish List http://a.co/2W2qXTz so you can purchase items that will go directly to moms and babies in need through IC. And as always, for those of you who prefer to send a donation through the mail, we have included an envelope with this newsletter.
As you are enjoying your freedoms and fun times this summer, you can also become a part of something bigger. Save a little money and send it to us. Lives will be saved and transformed because of you. Your donations will keep the doors of our Center and Mobile Clinic open so we can continue to bring the gift of LIFE to women and families like Gianna & Alex (read their story on page 2) facing the challenges of unsupported pregnancy. Be sure to toot your horn if you see us out and about – and as always, please keep us in your prayers. Thank you for making this a summer of support for Informed Choices!
With you for LIFE!
Christine Vatuone, CEO
