Be on the look out for your special edition publication arriving October 8th
Dear Friends of Care Net,
We regret that we cannot gather in person for our Annual Fall Fundraiser this year.
"Let us not grow weary while doing good for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." - Galatians 6:9
Due to the current level of COVID19 infections and recommendations from health officials, Care Net will forego our regular in person Fall Fundraiser this year.
Based on survey results from some of our most faithful supporters, we are opting to send out a ministry update via U.S. mail as well as through e-mail to everyone on our regular mailing list. So, be on the lookout for a Special COVID Edition Fall Fundraiser publication arriving around October 8th—the intended date of our Fall Fundraiser.
Please provide your contact information at the bottom of this page, and we’ll be sure to add you.
We will include a response card with the publication that you’ll receive in early October. You may also donate online at FriendsOfCareNetHouston.com. Click the donate button and select “Fall Fundraiser” as the designation for your gift.
In favor of simplicity and to best steward our resources, we are creating 3 separate items that will be available online to supplement the Special COVID19 Edition Fall Fundraiser publication. These include:
(1) a videotaped client testimony,
(2) a special 15-minute presentation by our keynote speaker, Shawn Carney,
(3) an animated PowerPoint slide show that will feature key data from the past year.
These items will be available on our new website: FriendsOfCareNetHouston.com, and we’ll be sending you links via email.
You may recall that Shawn Carney is the President and Co-Founder of 40 Days for Life, an organization that started in College Station 13 years ago with the mission of ending abortion in our lifetime through prayer. Shawn and his wife, Lisa, were portrayed in the popular movie, Unplanned, that told the true story of how Abby Johnson, the highly successful director of the Planned Parenthood in College Station, walked away from the abortion industry—in part due to the efforts of the pro-life community.
Thank you! There are two ways for you to engage others. You can provide your friend’s email address using the form below to receive a short series of emails with links to online materials. Alternatively, we will be sending you a digital invitation in a few weeks that you can forward to your friends so that they can provide their full mailing address to receive the Special COVID Edition Fall Fundraiser publication as well as the email series. The Fall Fundraiser is the easiest way to learn about the ministry at Care Net. We believe that this year’s modified Fall Fundraiser will be no different.
Yes! We have been open (albeit with regular modifications) throughout the entire pandemic, so there’s lots to tell you about since we last were together last year. I hope that you will look forward to receiving your Special COVID Edition Fall Fundraiser publication in October.
Glad you remembered! Yes, last year’s Matching Grant has allowed us to pilot many new ways of reaching and ministering to women facing an unplanned pregnancy over the past year. We’ll be sure to report on those experiments and initiatives in the mailed publication and in the PowerPoint slide show.
It is our prayer that we will NOT be dealing with COVID this time next year! Next year will be our 30th Anniversary celebration, and we have a very special speaker already lined up. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, so you’ll just have to stay tuned until after this year’s event for the big reveal!
