About Red Envelope Day (and where to buy)

March 13, 2009 at 9:50 am Leave a comment


Email information from an email I received on the project yesterday:

President Obama has pledged to support  and sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which will  essentially “undo” every law currently in place to limit  abortion in the U.S., i.e., parental consent laws, parental  notification, waiting periods, prohibition of transporting a  minor girl across state lines to obtain an abortion,  etc.

It may seem that those who believe abortion is wrong are in a minority. It may seem like we have no voice and  it’s shameful to even bring it up. Let us show our President  and the world that the voices of those of us who do not  believe abortion is acceptable are not silent and must be heard.

An empty red envelope will send a message to  President Barack Obama that there is moral outrage in this  country over this issue. It is a quiet, but clear message of  protest.

Please forward this message to every one of  your friends who you think would send one too. I wish we could send 50 million red envelopes, one for every child who has died before having a chance to live since Roe v  Wade legalized abortion in the US 36 years ago.

I’m  getting my red envelopes ready. How about you?

WHERE TO FIND CHEAP RED ENVELOPES TO MAIL OR DISTRIBUTE:  as seen on facebook today (locally, Diana A. is sharing hers):

Today MGB Printing Services arranged to supply preprinted red envelopes for the red envelope project. The company is owned by the husband of a woman who has walked through the healing of post abortion trauma, and he cared deeply about this movement. As a result he has offered a price that is better than any I have found to date, and they can be printed in large quantities. In order to get them on the market quickly, they are being made available on ebay. If you are looking for red envelopes, here is your source.

Yes, I’m getting my red envelopes ready!

I applaud and pray for those who organized it, and I’m praying.

I simply cannot imagine my daughter,

a minor, in this situation

without my help and notification.

Lord, help us do what is right and wise and pleasing to You in all these scenarios.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
