The HEART of the Matter Presidential Pro Life Craft Project

Red Envelope

Shared by Cindy S. vs. Seton Yahoogroup

With Valentines approaching, this gets to the heart of the matter.

I received this idea from the Seton Yahoogroup.

By +JMJ+

Get a red envelope. On the front, address it to:

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, D.C. 20500

On the back of the envelope, write the following message.

This envelope represents one child who died in abortion.
It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the world.
Responsibility begins with conception.

Put it in the mail, and send it. Then forward this to every one of your friends who you think would send one too. I wish we could send 50 million red envelopes, one for every child who died before having a chance to live. Maybe it will change the heart of the president?

Another woman wrote, "Good idea but if you get the flimsy envelope then it will not work and it will jam the Post Office's Automated Machines." She suggested putting a blank white poster card or card stock in the envelope.

MY IDEAS -(Sorry for the confusion but these are Cindy S.' ideas)

If you don't have red envelopes, let your littlests [sic] color or paint white envelopes red so they can be involved. The potential of a child......

Another idea for inside the card is a white card stock note saying....

OPEN your heart to the lives of your unborn CITIZENS. Be a President to ALL Americans!

Put in a bunch of prayer cards while you're at it! :) PASS IT ON.

Yeah, and leave off your return address so you don't get audited like Joe the Plumber! I wouldn't trust the Obama administration.

What a great idea.

Esther, I think that last idea you posted was the very best one. And children could put some heart stickers on it as well.
Definitely count my family in on this, and I will be posting about it as well.

Barb and Lee, that was Cindy's idea.
