Hey Men, You Can Literally Be One in a Million!

Home / Footer Stork Stories / Hey Men, You Can Literally Be One in a Million!

Growing up, culture told me that real men don’t cry. That real men use dirt to heal wounds and that a meal is only a meal if it has meat in it. That being a man means you never show emotion, that you fight with your fists to protect your ego, and that the only way to get a girl was to never let her know you care.

That’s what culture told me.

Culture was wrong.

We’ve been wired with the worst message for young men and the side effects are heartbreaking:

  • 43% of children in America live without a father.
  • 71% of high school drop-outs come from homes without a father.
  • 71% of pregnant teenage girls are without a father.

My son Sam is a tender kidhe prays for others regularly and refuses to fall asleep unless we’re snuggling. But he’s also incredibly brave and adventurous. He loves indoor skydiving and climbs rocks even adults are intimidated by.

As a father, it’s my job to show my sons that being a real man looks different from the picture culture has painted. I want my boys to grow up to become warrior poets, like the men that I read about in ancient scriptures. I want them to fight against injustice.

Not only is society distorting what it means to be a man, but fathers are abandoning women and their kids. In a situation that is desperate for help, culture is silent.

But you don’t have to be. By generously supporting Save the Storks you can care for a mother in need and also, in a sense, father a young boy or girl. You are the voice that’s changing the statistics.

We have roughly 7,251 donors who have played the role of a father through supporting women who choose life for their babies. There are roughly 7.347 billion people in the world. Men, this means that when you partner with us in this mission, you are literally one in a million!*

For just $30 a month, you can be one in a million and become a father to the voiceless.

*Technically you’re 1 in 1,013,938.724, but you get the point!

Save the Storks exists to partner with pregnancy resource centers and give abortion-vulnerable women a choice that will change their lives forever. We partner with pregnancy resource centers all over the nation, providing them with powerful tools and training to more effectively connect with those women in their communities. With the support of people like you, we have built over 50 Stork Buses that reach women near abortion clinics, on college campuses, in rural areas and inner cities. And here’s a statistic you’ll want to share with friends and family: four out of five women who board a Stork Bus, see their baby on the ultrasound and hear the heartbeat, choose life.
