An Amazing Haven for Young Women in Crisis Pregnancies

My wife and I are long-time supporters of Annunciation Maternity Home, and this year we are raising donations through Amplify Austin, a 24-hour day of giving to non-profits throughout Central Texas starting March 5 at 6pm. My goal is to raise $2,500 for the Home, and to do this I need your help!

ABOUT ANNUNCIATION

If you’ve never heard of Annunciation, they are a nationally accredited maternity home in Georgetown, TX providing young mothers experiencing a crisis pregnancy with housing, educational opportunities, access to healthcare, job assistance, childcare, counseling, and more. Mothers and their babies can stay for up to two years, and they can house up to 26 mothers in their three homes!

annunc1WHY I SUPPORT THIS CAUSE

We’ve been supporting Annunciation for many years. Imagine you were a young woman, even a teenager, and found out you were pregnant. You were being pressured by boyfriend and family to have an abortion, yet you refused to do it. As a result, you were kicked out of your home and have nowhere to go. This story is unfortunately common, yet young women in these situations have few places where they can go, be safe, get schooling, have their baby, and then stay for two years until they can find a good place to live and a good job or college.

HOW TO GIVE

You can help me by scheduling your online donation today, or making an online donation anytime between 6pm March 5 to 6pm March 6. Here is a link to my personal fundraising page, where you can make or schedule your donation:

WHERE YOUR MONEY WILL GO

Donations made to Annunciation on Amplify Austin day will be used in the housing program, helping each mother and baby have a safe, stable home and healthy nutrition, so each mom can focus on her educational, workforce, and parenting opportunities.

Please consider a donation to help this amazing place!
