Red Envelope Project

I probably should be including this particular post on page 2; but I feel that this is so important that I wanted everyone to see it quickly.

I'm just 1 person. I can't possibly make a difference.
I have maintained that 1 person can make a difference ~ If you believe firmly that the cause is what's right and if God is in it. I believe that God inspired the red envelope project.

You may have already heard about the Red Envelope Project. I just learned about it this morning. Click on the link and read the brief website to learn more. Having your voice heard is simple, all it takes is addressing a red envelope and dropping it in the mail.

1. Find a red envelope.The envelope is empty.

2. On the back of the envelope print:
"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."

3. Don't forget to put a return address on the envelope.

4. Mail it to:
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W.
Washington, DC 20500

According to an article on WorldNetDaily, '"We are trying to change the president's heart," Otto writes on a website explaining the project. "This is a message to a man that God hears the cry of innocent blood. It is not a political stunt, although I hope it changes policy in Washington. If the capital is flooded with so many letters that no one can deny it, I am hoping the image will be burned into Barack Obama's mind that this is about human blood, and that he lies awake at night until he cannot resist doing something about it."
'Otto told WND, "As I've watched this grow, it's become clearer and clearer to me that the thing I'd like people to see is that they can make a difference in whatever they do. The message of my life is to listen to God and do what he tells you. And if you listen to God and do what he tells you and live a live of prayer and obedience, you can make a difference."'

The Red Envelope project is an effort by the people to show President Obama that the majority of folks in this country believe that abortion is wrong. So far, the Red Envelope Project website says 1,121,134 people sent or pledged to send envelopes so far. (That's over a million people who could have simply said "I'm only one person, I couldn't possibly make a difference.") They encourage everyone to mail them on March 31st to have them there by the Passover. If you can't get one in the mail by then, don't get discouraged & give up ... send it as soon as you can. Send a red envelope for yourself, your children, and your grandchildren. Red is the color of blood. In sending a red envelope to President Obama, it represents the blood of an individual child that has been slain. In flooding the White House mail room with red envelopes, we the people are saying ... please, no more! Let us help speak for the innocent children who will never be able to speak for themselves.

May the Lord bless you.
