We Honor Some Unsung Heroes
"Never was so much, owed by so many, by so few."
- Winston Churchill, on the Battle of Britain.
Today, our nation honors those who laid down their lives, that we might live. We at 4US, ask you to take a moment to remember those few that lay down their livelihoods, so that this ministry may grow, so that countless generations would know life.
These are the people who sacrifice significant amounts of time, treasure, & talent so that our charity can grow from 10 machines per year to 100 per year. They are our life-force multipliers that underwrite the rapid growth of our mission to a national audience. Please, pray for these courageous business owners, generous donors, and supporting families. Give thanks to God tonight for their sacrifice.
None of our donors are faceless foundations or enduring endowments...when they give, they forego growing wealthy, so that we might grow a movement.
The 3 Wise Men: These anonymous donors gave $125,000 so that we can do something no one has EVER done: equip champions to illuminate a nation through the Adopt-a-Center website. They funded:
- A Nationally Focused Website 4US.org
- Adopt-a-Center Technology
- Professional Customer Service
- 3 year sponsorship at the Napa Institute
The Kelly Family: An extraordinary family whose donation funded the 5 videos in our sidebar. The 6th will be unveiled at the Napa Institute.
Footprint Exhibits: Thank Thomas Koch (owner) and Rebecca Batty (4US dedicated project manager). A $50,000 in-kind donation will enable us to:
- Wrap two promotional 10x20 trailers
- Create 5 professional Exhibit Booths
- Equip our Regional LifeLine Recruiters
- Event signage, to make the Rally Round 4 UltraSound a national destination pro-life event on par with D.C.'s March for Life
The Hazlewood Family: Not only did they join The300 in 2016, their donation helps equip our staff outreach champions with the tools they need to grow.
Anonymous Vashon Island Family: Their annual donations fund our administrative costs and allow us to expand the equipping of our outreach teams.
- Cel, jetpack, unlimited data package
- Tablets with keyboard
The Elbert Family: Brian, Judy, and Northshore Exteriors have given for years. Coming back as our title sponsors in 2017, they're funding:
- Sound & Stage eqpt to reduce annual costs
- Event inflatables to reduce annual costs
- Guinness tracking tools to reduce annual costs
Zealot Branding: Especially Jason Maddox, our creative director, and Kelly Bonnallie. Jason's work at ministry wages (he charges 4US 1/3 of his normal rate) is why we look like we know what we're doing across all facets of our brand. Kelly, is devoting enormous amounts of time to build our Adopt-a-Center portal so PRCs can thrive.
Chick-fil-A Tacoma: Lynnae Schneller feeds The300 half the meals they will eat over 4 days. She's not stopping there. She's recruiting other fast food vendors to supply the other half -- which will save us $10,000 in total (11 meals feeding 300 people).
Andrew Flanagan: A coding genius, going through a turbulent time, nonetheless sacrifices his time to write code that allows people to register for the world's most impactful mission trip and pro-life event -- and allows our all-volunteer event staff to manage them.
Pray 4 Them and 4US
56 Million American Lost to Abortion
If we offered a moment of silence for every one of those unborn lives lost since 1973 -- we would be silent for 107 years.
Our PRCs are on the frontlines.
Our donors help us equip more of them every year.
You can help illuminate a nation by:
Thank you to all who lay down their livelihoods so that others may know life.*
*Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.
