Win $100 & Give The Gift Of Hope

Share Comments (43)

Most of you know that my wife is pregnant with our second child, and while many people look at this as an exciting time, myself included, there are some expecting mothers who aren’t so happy with having gotten pregnant in the first place.

These expecting mothers often-times turn to abortion.  Some get depressed about being pregnant and turn toward drugs or even suicide.  And even some who are excited about having a new baby, may be in a tough financial situation.

I love kids, and I want to see every child have the chance to be something in this world.

So my wife and I decided after all this time that I’ve been blogging, that I need to give back.  I want to give back.  So… it’s charity time.

Please feel free to help me give back, and you could win $100.

The Cause

I chose a local cause that helps support Pregnant women in crisis situations.  Whether it’s underage pregnancy, pregnancy from rape, pregnancy during a tough financial situation, etc., Hope Unlimited is that local beacon of hope to expecting mothers.

Hope Unlimited Pregnancy Crisis Center is actually comprised of three parts:

The Crisis Center

Being the main piece of Hope Unlimited, the Crisis Center is where expecting mothers facing tough decisions take their first steps toward getting help.

In the words of Hope Unlimited:

“Through these services; education on sexual health, education on life style and relationships, abstinence, support groups to teen and single adults, we are telling the truth to a generation who has been ripped off by being told that sex is no big deal.”

The House of Hope

The House of Hope is a place where expecting mothers in tough situations can go and live to get help.  The House teaches those expecting mothers how to deal with being a single mom, how to deal with the fears of having a baby, and that no matter how tough they think it is, there is always hope.

The House also gives these mothers the following opportunites:

  • Life skills classes
  • Continuing education such as GED, high school, and college
  • Assistance obtaining medical care
  • Adoption counseling if needed
  • Goal setting for the future
  • A family centered environment
  • Job placement
  • Christ-centered counseling
  • And so much more…


The Mobile Medical Unit (RV)

The Hope Unlimited Mobile Medical Unit, built right into an RV is used to go to expecting mothers in their own neighborhood.  It’s also used at events sponsored by Hope Unlimited so that mothers-to-be can get ultrasounds, or other medical checkups that are needed.

The Mobile Medical Unit offers many of the same services as the Crisis Center, only on wheels.




How I’m Giving Back

Hope Unlimited does a lot of things that touch so many lives.  But they do it all through donations from churches, groups, businesses, and other members of the local community.

I want to give Hope Unlimited the chance to be supported outside of the community.  I want them to know that everyone in the world supports their non-stop giving.

So I’m helping to raise money so that Hope Unlimited can continue providing it’s services free of charge to those that really need it.

In addition to simply raising money, we are having a supply drive.  Hope Unlimited is in constant need of supplies and we will have some drop-off points for the local community to contribute those supplies.

There is nothing really extravagant about how we are helping, but every little thing counts.

If you’ve ever seen Liberty Mutuals, “The Responsibility Project” commercials where one person does a small, good deed, followed by one more and so on; that is how we seen this fund-raising project going.

And that is where you come in.

Hope Unlimited

How You Can Give Back

You too can help in our mission to give the gift of hope to those who need it.

All you have to do is donate a little money to support their cause by using the “ChipIn” donation button below.

For every person that donates at least $10, you will be entered in a drawing to win $100. Although, please feel free to donate more if you feel lead to do so.

Every little bit helps and while our minimum goal is $2,000, if we only raise $10, then we still helped out.

If you cannot afford to give money, but still want to contribute, please leave a comment encouraging the good work that Hope Unlimited is doing.

If you do contribute financially, please also leave a comment with words of encouragement or support.

My goal is to show Hope Unlimited that we all appreciate what they are doing, and we think the best way to do this is to let them see all of your comments.  Combined with the financial donations, this will let Hope Unlimited and many others realize that there is hope.


* All donations are tax deductible.

** Liberty Mutual is proud to sponsor the discussion around responsibility as it relates to this blog post, however, they do not endorse the topic/cause referenced in this blog post.

*** The fund-raising event ends April 27, but please don’t let that stop you from continuing to give if you feel the need.  The $100 contest ends on April 27th as well.
