"Do not yield to discouragement in the face of difficulties and do not abandon yourselves to false solutions which often seem the easiest way to overcome problems. Do not be afraid to make a commitment, to face hard work and sacrifice, to choose the paths that demand fidelity and constancy, humility and dedication. Be confident in your youth and its profound desires for happiness, truth, beauty and genuine love! Live fully this time in your life so rich and so full of enthusiasm."
"Let us look with greater hope to the future; let us encourage one another on our journey."
~ Papa Benedict XVI

Walk for Their Lives

Over at HairBows 4 Life Bowtique they are  hosting a walk-a-thon that is easy to participate in and doable for anyone.

Starting next Sunday June 12 through August 28 (12 weeks) please consider participating in Walk for Their Lives sponsored by Hair Bows 4 Life ...

How many miles can you walk to help support the protection of Human Life, those sweet baby feet!

To participate:

1. Let Hair Bows 4 Life  know you are taking up the Challenge... then tell everyone you know that you are doing so.

2. Have friends and family sponsor you.  You can do a penny or a nickle for every mile you walk in the 12 weeks, or a flat rate of say $50 total or even $50 for 1,000 miles.  The options are many!

3.  Email Hair Bows for Life at walkfortheirlives @ gmail . com with your location and what kind of sponsor money you will donate (basically total $ per mile or flat rate promised) as well as which Pro-Life organization you will donate to.  You read that right!  You do not send them the money, you hand it directly to the Pro-life organization of your choice.   

4. Record your miles (their site has links to a weekly log as well as a Google Map Pedometer.)

5. Every Sunday, comment your miles.  They are giving away door prizes for your comments and some top walker prizes as well!

Please, join our family as we put on our walking shoes and spend twelve weeks using our feet to save theirs!  We challenge you to!

Comment here to let us know you're joining us! ... or that you'd like to sponsor us.  I will post more later about the Pro-Life organization we are donating to as well as keep you posted about how we are doing.

God bless you and your endeavor to help those who can't help themselves.

I was wondering if it would be alright for me to use your picture of the baby feet and heart for a prolife t shirt I am designing for a prolife group.

Thank you

Elizabeth, thank you for asking! Actually i got it from the site that hosted the walk-a-thon - http://hairbows4life.blogspot.com/2011/06/walk-for-their-lives.html
you can email them at walkfortheirlives@gmail.com

If they didn't originally design it then you are probably free to use it as you have searched and asked! : )
Good luck! And please let me know what they say! Its a great design!
