Want to make a serious impact for life?
For the last two years, a stand-up bunch of enthusiastic volunteers have made their way to ‘Easterfest
’ in Toowoomba. Christian music fans? Maybe. Passionate about communicating the nightmare of abortion to 40,000 Australians – definitely!
Their mission – to engage Christian young people in the battle to rid their generation of the scourge of abortion. Their weapon – T-shirts! Yep, T-shirts.
is a US-based ministry that aims to educate people about abortion. They recognise that even after 30 years of a 'pro-life' movement, not a lot has changed... the problem? People don't know, so people don't care. Abort73.com aims to educate people about abortion - most people are ‘pro-choice’ without knowing why. The truth about what abortion does to babies, women, and the broader society makes all the difference. Abort73.com uses T-shirts (and other things) to get people to a website to educate themselves.
Recent feedback on their website says: “Before I visited this site, I was opposed to abortion [but] did not know the facts about the types of abortion, and the horrible truth of [it's racial impact] across our society... I did not know the whole impact it took on mothers, and on families.”
For Abort73 to make an impact in Australia, they need as many people wearing Abort73.com T-shirts
as possible. That’s where Easterfest comes in. The organisers in past years have other commitments this year and are unable to man the stall. Life Network Australia are looking for volunteers who would be willing to sell T-shirts and help get the truth out there!
Here’s what a previous volunteer had to say about the experience: “It's pretty easy - all that is required of the team is to man the stall, sell shirts, tell people what abort73.com is on about and have the odd extended conversation about abortion. I really enjoyed it when I did it.”
If you can wear a T-shirt, this is your opportunity to get involved in the fight for life. Email (firstname.lastname@example.org
