The project has been a huge success so far! A worker in the White House mailroom has confirmed the delivery of as many as 2.25 million red envelopes.
In a previous email I asked you to be part of the nationwide, grassroots Red Envelope Project. It is the brainchild of Christ (rhymes with mist) Otto. Every pro-lifer is being asked to mail an empty red envelope to President Obama at the White House. Each envelope represents a baby who has been killed by abortion. The red color symbolizes the blood of abortion. The President’s address is on the front. The following message is printed on the back: This envelope represents one child who died in abortion. It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the world.
The goal: have millions of red envelopes flooding the mailroom of the White House. And that’s exactly what is happening! The White House has received a tidal wave of red envelopes. The mail worker, “Steve,” was asked if he’s been getting any red envelopes. He responded, “Believe me, they made it here.”
More importantly, Steve said the Obama administration has noticed.
Steve added, “Quite frankly, there was definitely a deluge of mail coming through. I’ve been here 35 years, so I’ve seen presidents come and go. This campaign ranks up there with the big ones.”
Here at Life Issues Institute, we printed and distributed 125,000 red envelopes. Others have obviously also done their part. During a recent phone conversation with Christ, he and I noted the joy of seeing pro-life organizations and individuals working together to make a unified and effective statement for life.
Christ very poignantly summarized the project by saying, “We are trying to change the president’s heart. This is a message to a man that God hears the cry of innocent blood. If the capital is flooded with so many letters that no one can deny it, I am hoping the image will be burned into Barack Obama’s mind that this is about human blood, and that he lies awake at night until he cannot resist doing something about it.”
Very well said! And the Red Envelope Project continues. You can still send your red envelopes to the President. Life Issues Institute will keep ordering them as long as there’s a demand. Click here to order yours: https://lifeissues.org/red/index.html
Please pray that this project changes the President’s heart on abortion and that he acts to protect unborn babies from a violent and brutal death.
Sincerely for the babies,
