Booties to Sew
Webmasters, site owners, and bloggers, please consider supporting our site with a link back to Gifts for the Unborn. Thanks!
Gifts for the Unborn offers small gifts to mothers when they first test positive in a crisis pregnancy. The special gift package consists of a newborn infant's picture frame plus a care product (like a baby washcloth, bib, soap, lotion or shampoo) and a pair of baby booties or socks.
By placing all three gift items in a transparent plastic bag and presenting them to the women, we hope the moms might turn away from any thoughts of abortion after being touched by this simple, affirmative pro-life message.
How successful has this idea been? Gifts for the Unborn began in 1995 and will be celebrated its 17th anniversary in early 2012. In those 17 years, approximately 130,000 gift packages have been presented to newly expectant mothers through close to 500 crisis pregnancy agencies scattered throughout all 50 states and seven countries. Many lives of unborn babies have been saved using this subtle, positive approach. Some of our first "saves" are now in middle school and even of high school age. In three or four years, they will begin graduating.
Help for Gifts for the Unborn is always needed. Those who can knit, crochet or sew booties could assist greatly with handmade donations so this charity can continue to expand.
Others may wish to give infant picture frames, baby-care products or store-bought infant clothing. Even zip-top plastic bags in pint or quart sizes are welcome.
All donations (including checks or money orders) are deductible and should be sent to Gifts for the Unborn to one of the following addresses:
Dick and Lorelle Jacobs
11305 Alhambra Drive
Austin, TX 78759-4902
Louise and Chick Walters

Your help will allow us to continue our efforts to help reduce the number of abortions worldwide. If you have any questions, please EMAIL ME and I will respond as soon as possible. Thank you.
And remember, there is nothing small in the service of God!
