- Steps for Life
Guest Author: Alyssa Liljequist| Share |
Hi, my name is Alyssa Liljequist. I'm a 16-year-old Christian homeschooler. I'm very shy by nature and it has taken my getting involved in the causes I'm passionate about to get to me to speak out. One of the causes that I care deeply about is the plight of protecting unborn babies from abortion. God has graciously given me opportunities to make a difference for the pro-life cause.
One of these is my annual involvement in Steps for Life (a two-mile walkathon) which is a fund-raising event for the Pregnancy Resource Centers of Greater Portland (PRC). PRC (a non-profit Christian organization) helps 8,000 women and pre-born babies annually through 5 Centers, providing free pregnancy tests, comprehensive peer counseling, free ultrasounds (given by RNs), practical help, referrals and real hope (the Gospel message) to those facing unplanned pregnancies.
In addition, I have been able to use my passion for making films for God's glory to spread the pro-life message. I hope you will consider joining me in fighting for the rights of those who cannot yet speak up for themselves! Together we can take "Steps for Life."
In 2009, Alyssa raised $1,362 for Steps for Life. This May 15th will be her 11th year of participating and her goal this year is $1,500. If you would like to consider a tax-deductible donation for Alyssa's goal, visit her web page. Donations must be received by noon on May 14th
Check out a recent video Alyssa made to express her passion for helping young women choose life.
