A Red Envelope: Please Join All of Us in Mailing Ours on March 31st 2009

Hi all,
This is an email we've received from a dear friend that we thought was of great importance to share with y'all. Please consider doing this!
God bless,
~Emily



An excerpt from Nancy Campbell's "Above Rubies":




As I was praying, I believe that God gave me an interesting idea. Out in the garage I have a box of red envelopes. Like the powerful image of the red LIFEtape, an empty red envelope will send a message to Barack Obama that there is moral outrage in this country over this issue. It will be quiet, but clear.
Here is what I would like you to do:
Get a red envelope. (You can buy them at Kinkos, or at party supply stores.) In the front, address it to:
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington, D.C.



On the back, 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.






In another email that was forwarded another lady answered the questions that were being sent out such as: "Well, when do we send them?"



Here is her response:

Hi, a date has been set to send the red envelopes. There's a red envelope group on facebook that just started and has almost 100,000 members. The date they are asking everyone to mail their envelopes is March 31. Let's pray they are absolutely flooded with these envelopes! Spread the word.

PLEASE! Spread the word!

Oh well pardon ME *wink* Well, what if all four of the people who told you all said to themselves: Well, the Stones probably already know so I won't tell them. And then you never knew! ha ha!! Better told four times than not at all, eh my dear? *wink* Love you too. Did you get my email?

The Stone Family said...

*sigh* yes, Katie... it is better to be told 4 times than not at all.
Yes, we did get your email, just have yet to respond... so looking forward to seeing you *hopefully!* :)
