Hi friends! This year, with the attack on several fundamental human rights, I've decided once again to channel my anger, frustration, and despair into action. Now more than ever, it has become even more important to help protect women's reproductive rights and ensure access to comprehensive health care for all, not just those who have the means. Nearly 50% of the world's population is female. We - men and women alike - can't sit idle when half the people around us don't have access to the care they need to lead healthy and productive lives.
For the second year in a row, I'm fortunate enough to be in a position where I can raise money for ProChoice Resources, an organization that needs the support and championing of individuals like us, and help make a tangible difference for women in need. For almost 50 years, Pro-Choice Resources (PCR) has provided advocacy, access and education services to individuals and families in Minnesota and throughout the Midwest.
And PCR's Bowl-a-Thon is the longest-running fundraising event in the organization's history. Last year, people like you helped raise $71,000 at this event. Since we don’t receive funding from the government or large corporations, those funds are vital to our ability to serve communities. We simply can’t do it without donors like you.
Wondering how much to give? It may help to know how your dollars are used:
$25 Purchases safer sex products to distribute in the community.
$50 Helps guide pregnant women, youth, and transgender people to abortion care or parenting resources (prenatal care, adoption, etc).
$100 Supports advocates at PCR in facilitating EMERGE – PCR’s support group for people who have had abortions.
$250 Provides financial support to one person who is unable to afford abortion care.
$500 Provides one Education & Training Workshop on Abortion Care and Reproductive Justice Advocacy.
$1,500 Keeps us funding abortion care for those in need and keeps the Abortion Assistance Fund Hotline open for one week.
