Be a Hero. Save a Life.

November is here, and we have a great deal to be thankful for here at Wisconsin Right to Life. We are thankful for you, our generous donors, our tireless volunteers, our pro-life elected officials. And, Giving Tuesday.

Giving Tuesday is quickly approaching and, with it, the opportunity to give the greatest gift of all – life – to the most vulnerable members of our society.

What is Giving Tuesday? It’s the Tuesday following the shopping heydays of Black Friday and Cyber Monday when you can give a gift that will make the world a better place. YOU can make the world a better place this Giving Tuesday by helping save the lives of our society’s most vulnerable members: the unborn, the critically ill, people living with disabilities, and the elderly. You don’t have to wait until Giving Tuesday to start saving lives – you can begin right now!

When you support the Wisconsin Right to Life Education Fund this Giving Tuesday you will:

  • Save lives by enabling us to produce cutting-edge educational materials that promote life;
  • Save lives by helping us build local chapters which promote life in communities across Wisconsin;
  • Save lives by supporting our Emergency Grant program which provides women facing severe financial crisis the resources they need to choose life;
  • Save lives by providing funds for L!fe on Campus grants — grants which allow pro-life students on campuses across Wisconsin to build a culture of life at their colleges and universities;
  • Save lives by teaching Wisconsin teens the truth about the abortion industry and the life issues at our L!fe Camp summer camp as well as Teens for Life chapters across the state;
  • And much, much more!

There is another very good reason to save lives by partnering with Wisconsin Right to Life this Giving Tuesday. Abortion advocates are making hay from Donald Trump’s election. They are urging their supporters to give generously to Planned Parenthood as a protest. No matter how you feel about Trump, we can all agree that Planned Parenthood doesn’t need more money! We need your help to fight what will surely be a pro-abortion onslaught after the new year.

How do you celebrate Giving Tuesday by giving the gift of life right now? There are two ways:

Set up a fundraising page to share on social media and through e-mail:

  1. Visit Wisconsin Right to Life’s Giving Tuesday page;
  2. Click on the green button that says, “Fundraise”;
  3. Fill out the easy form – here are a few tips:
    1. How much should you raise? $266 is a good number. That’s the amount it costs WRTL to save one life;
    2. What to call your fundraiser? Something that lets people know what you’re doing, like “Help Jane Save a Life!” or “Help Tom Be a Hero!”
    3. Be sure to include a few words about why people should help you save a life;
    4. Upload a photo of yourself so your friends know this is a legitimate fundraiser;
  4. Once your form is complete, use the icons at the bottom of the page to share your gift page on your Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as via e-mail;
  5. Re-share your fundraiser on Facebook, Twitter and e-mail at least once a week between now and November 29th to be sure everyone sees your fundraiser! Sometimes people need to see it more than once before they give;
  6. When donations are made to your gift page you will receive a notification, the donor will receive an acknowledgement e-mail, and Wisconsin Right to Life will receive vital funds to help pregnant mothers choose life, educate teens and college students, and enable us to continue building a culture that embraces life here in Wisconsin.

Give the Gift of Life on Behalf of that hard-to-buy-for relative, friend or co-worker, or just give a gift:

  1. Visit Wisconsin Right to Life’s Giving Tuesday page;
  2. Click on the green button that says, “Donate Now”;
  3. Fill out the donation form;
  4. At the bottom of the page, fill in the name of the person you’re giving on behalf of in the “On Behalf Of” box;
  5. On Christmas, surprise those you’ve given on behalf of!
  6. Don’t stop with just one gift; you can visit our Giving Tuesday page as many times as you’d like.
  7. Not giving on behalf of anyone? Just leave the box blank.

That’s it!
