Walk for Life Platinum and Gold Sponsors

Our 2022 Walk for Life was a success! With your help, we have raised over $44,400!

I would like to thank my staff (pictured above) Jazmine and Samantha, and all the volunteers that helped make the event run smoothly. Most of all, I want to thank our supporters that gave of their time and gathered donations from their friends and family. Each donation makes a difference, no matter the amount. God blesses them all! These funds raised help us reach women facing unplanned pregnancies as we educate, empower, and encourage them as they make pregnancy decisions.

So far in 2022, we had 10 women who entered our doors unsure of what they wanted to do with their pregnancy, and make decisions for life! Your support has made a beautiful difference in these 10 babies’ and mothers’ lives. “Thank you” does not begin to explain my heart’s appreciation for each one of our supporters.

Last summer we received a grant from a wonderful organization called Pre-Born. They provided us with a new ultrasound machine. We would like to thank Stonefort General Baptist Church for its partnership with Pre-Born. Together they made receiving this new machine possible. This machine will show mothers a clearer picture of their baby in early pregnancy and will be able to let them hear the baby’s heartbeat! Studies have shown time and time again that hearing the heartbeat is so effective in connecting a mother to her unborn child.

A BIG THANK YOU TO THE STONEFORT GENERAL BAPTIST CHURCH

How Can I Stay Involved?

There are many ways to be involved with Pregnancy Matters.

You can volunteer your time at one of our offices if your schedule allows. If you have free time during the week, fill out an application, and let’s talk from there! https://forms.gle/Yi6BeWykFTDfCi6PA

You can host a “Baby Bottle Fundraiser” at your church or community group. We will provide you with the bottles you need, your group will gather change and cash in them for a few weeks, and we will even pick up the bottles for you. You don’t have to empty the bottles or count change! If your group prefers more direct material support, you can always host a Diaper Drive and gather diapers, wipes, and baby hygiene items. Call us to learn more.

You can also become a financial partner by giving a tax-deductible donation. We have people who give annually, people who give monthly, and even those who give randomly. Each gift is instrumental in providing lasting change and support to so many families. You can mail a check to PO Box 4001, Carbondale, IL 62902 or Donate Online at https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=5S5YJHECRGF4Q

You can support us through your prayers. You can receive anonymous prayer requests through text or email when we have a mother facing a difficult decision or going through a hard circumstance. You can join this prayer program here: www.LifePrayerPartner.com/PregnancyMatters

I am left speechless at the generosity of our friends and supporters! Your heart for the women and families we serve shows in your actions! So again, I say thank you. Thank you for making it possible for Pregnancy Matters to provide another year of compassionate care to our community.
