Save The Date! Giving Tuesday is November 28, 2017

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.

With all the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, two days focused on sales and big profits for retailers everywhere, why not wait until Giving Tuesday to give back to local causes that are important to you?

What is #GivingTuesday?
Giving Tuesday will be on November 28th this year. According to givingtuesday.org, it is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Our Goal
 Life Centers’ goal is to raise $9,000.

What are we doing with the money?
All of the money Life Centers raises on Giving Tuesday will go toward Baby Bundles. $60 pays for one Baby Bundle, and provides a mother with hope and confidence to keep her baby. $9,000 will provide 150 Baby Bundles to be given to expectant mothers right around the holidays.

What are Baby Bundles?
Baby Bundles consist of diapers, wipes, formula, clothes, blankets, and other necessities a new baby would need. Often times, the women who come into our centers fear they will not be able to provide for a new baby. These Baby Bundles give women hope. They show support. They save lives.

Popeyes Restaurants
This year, Popeyes has partnered with Life Centers for #GivingTuesday! The 14 local Popeyes restaurants will be donating one-third of our $9,000 goal. When you give, Giving Tuesday gives back! Popeyes is providing a coupon that you can download and use when you give to Life Centers on Giving Tuesday, November 28.

Your Pledge
Make the pledge today that you will reserve $60 to donate to Life Centers on November 28th. #ChooseCompassion with Life Centers and truly make a difference this holiday season.

“I feel like there is a fire inside of me where there was once only ashes.”

The following is a real text message that was sent to a volunteer at one of our centers from a client. This client had been dealing with the pain of abortion and was introduced to our post-abortion recovery program, SOAR, spiritually oriented abortion recovery. It is completely humbling.

“This is going to be super long, and out of nowhere, but I’m just sitting here thinking so I’m going to type it out as best I can.

I’m thinking of how I will never find the words to be able to tell you how truly thankful I am for you. God’s love shines so brightly through you and it cut through the darkest places of my mind and heart. Places so dark, I didn’t even know they were there. And I didn’t even know how sad I was until that sadness was stripped away, little by little, all because you cared enough to introduce me to SOAR. And you cared enough to love me through the worst, ugliest, messiest moments of my life. And love like that can only come from Jesus. It has shown me how I’m supposed to love others.

Thank you for letting His love break through the walls that I had built around my heart. Thank you for the ability to laugh so hard I cry. Thank you for letting me be unapologetically myself. And for proving time and time again that you will always be there. I think of all of this every time I put a little more effort in to each day. It sounds so dumb, but I shower more. I pluck my eyebrows. I brush my teeth every day. I started flossing. All of this is so normal to most people, but I had stopped caring. And now I care again. I feel like there is a fire inside of me where there was once only ashes. I want to do better and be better, and live a life that shines for God like yours does. Thank you for being you. I truly mean that.”

Life Centers Announces New Center in Boone County
A new full-time pregnancy center will open in Lebanon this November.

Indianapolis, IN: Today, Life Centers announced they have signed a lease for a new center in Lebanon, Indiana. The address is 1208 North Lebanon Street, Lebanon, Indiana 46052.

The new center is in a central location across from Lebanon Memorial Park. It will be open 5 days a week to serve the community full-time. Life Centers would like to thank the churches and the community in Lebanon. Without their support, it would not be possible to open a center in Boone County. We deeply appreciate their continued support for our mission to save babies and change lives.

Life Centers’ Executive Director Tom Shevlot says, “We are excited to have a presence back in Boone County. Our previous center in Lebanon was only part-time, but we know that this new full-time center will serve one of the fastest growing counties in Indiana well. Now that this center is full-time, we can help support and provide resources to many more young women and families that need our services.” Life Centers’ previous Lebanon location closed in July of 2016 due to a fire.
