A while ago we announced that we have chosen The Morning Center to support as a family by giving a portion of the proceeds that comes from our site. We do make a little money from the ads, sponsors and affiliations (although we do not post or promote anything that we don’t personally believe in) and so we wanted to give back some of these proceeds to be able to help others.
We chose The Morning Center because it is a beautiful charity that provides free maternity care to mothers and their babies who are unable to afford medical care.
They have big hopes of building care facilities all over the United States, but they have started this past year by having Mobile Care Units in three cities to provide free, high quality prenatal and maternity care for mothers in urban areas to learn how to care for themselves and their growing babies.
Here’s the video that shows explains a little more about this ministry and charity:
Why do we share this with you again today? Well, The Morning Center has been enrolled in a Charity Giveaway where they could win $50,000 by just getting enough votes!
This is a huge blessing and opportunity for The Morning Center and mothers and their babies all over the country. As much as we would love to just give them $50,000, it is outside of our means now, but we can vote each day starting today, September 19th – October 31 just by simply clicking a button to vote for them. This charity $50,000 giveaway is being sponsored by “Cultivate Wines” and votes are all that is needed for this charity to win!
You can vote each day for The Morning Center HERE. It takes just a second and even more women and children all over the country could be receiving better and free maternity care because of it!
The cool part is that The Morning Center is making it easy for you to vote by allowing you to register on their site HERE to be reminded each day to vote for the next 6-weeks. We encourage you to sign-up for those reminders too and take a moment out of each day to help!
Some additional information: Not only are we excited about their mission and vision, but we are excited how they are approaching this as well. They mentioned a while ago that unlike most hospital nonprofit charities that spend up to 33 cents for every dollar raised that they are seeking to keep the same costs under 10% – which shows us their goal to be good stewards with the money given to this charity (a very thrifty approach :)). And not only that, but we feel their announcement to start with three Mobile Care Units in three different cities blew us out of the water! We see this as a huge benefit for the work as this incremental approach will allow them to minister to more women and children with an initial lower investment while they work to establish the long-term, permanent hospitals in different cities across the nation in the future! We love that they are using the money for an amazing cause, but also being very wise with how the money is spent!
Thank you for letting us share this with you and we pray you will be excited about this as well and help them win $50,000!
Update: Yahoo News has also posted about this great way to give for free. You can see the Yahoo news article HERE.
