    Help me spread the word and raise awareness for The Walk for Life 2014. Contributions greatly appreciated!


    For the past 10 years I have been privileged to walk in The Walk for Life. The Walk for Life raises funds to support The Crisis Pregnancy Center of Tidewater. Even though I am no longer local, I continue to support CPC because they show so much love and support to women facing crisis pregnancies and those that have had abortions. I have seen what all they do in the community, and am confident that every last penny they are given directly helps the women and children that come in for help. The volunteers show Christ like love and give something no tangible item can give(although they do give plenty of those too). Having faced a crisis pregnancy myself, I know how much the support given by CPC can mean to someone. It can be a complete life changer. 
    Please consider making a donation, so that more women can have an opportunity to be blessed by such an amazing organization. 


    If you would like to make a secure and tax deductible donation directly to The Crisis Pregnancy Center you may do so by going to the donation page HERE. I will not be given any personal information. It will be handled by the website and only used to send you your donation receipt for tax purposes.

    NOTE: This is not a per mile pledge. It's a straight forward flat amount you choose.

    Every dollar counts. For every $50.00 raised, they will be able to provide one hour of ministry services to their clients, including ultrasound, medical consultation, pregnancy tests, options counseling, education and much more. They also provide necessity items such as diapers, wipes, toiletry items, clothes, cribs, strollers and more!


    To Learn more about CPC and their mission, you may visit their website. http://www.cpcfriendsblog.com/2012/02/save-date.html
