Running for the Unborn
Yesterday, my sister Gabriella and I participated in the 4th annual 5K “Run for the Unborn” in Leesburg, VA. Through this event, we helped to raise money for a: pro-life healthcare organization: based in Fairfax, VA called: Divine Mercy Care, along with its affiliate the: Tepeyac Family Center, a pro-life OB/GYN practice. These organizations help poor pregnant women with their needs and encourage them to choose life for their unborn child by working with crisis pregnancy centers. During March 2013, Tepeyac Family Center saved54 babies: from abortion.
One of the greatest joys we can experience as people is to help others through private means. One of the most selfless things we can do for the poor is to provide them with hope and a better life through voluntary charity. Lending a helping hand to others in need through private charities is truly one of the best ways to help lift up the less fortunate.
