If you’re wondering why you should become a Save the Storks monthly donor and how your support helps our efforts, you’ve come to the right place! Becoming a monthly donor at Save the Storks is a great way to PRO-actively support the pro-life movement! Here are five reasons why:
You help more women choose life!
There were 629,898 abortions in 2019, the last year the CDC reported. That number has most likely risen given the pandemic, at-home abortion pills and more states passing pro-abortion laws.
It starts with the woman. Any woman facing an unexpected pregnancy feels scared and confused. She needs encouragement and support to feel like she’s got this. There is no child without a mother. That’s where you come in! With your support, you enable us to reach more women through our Stork Buses and pregnancy resource center (PRC) partners.
4 out of 5 women choose life on a Stork Bus. The medical professionals and compassionate teams on Stork Buses and at PRCs are essentially the first people a woman will talk to before deciding; they’ll also provide her resources during and beyond birth so she can thrive in motherhood. Your monthly partnership makes you a part of this essential connection!
You help change the narrative.
The message society pushes on women nowadays is that motherhood is an inconvenience, a setback. In today’s world, we have allowed the word “empowerment” to go hand and hand with the word “abortion.” Young teenage girls are proudly sharing their stories of abortion on social media and putting together campaigns to encourage other girls to have abortions. Society constantly tells women they CAN’T.
At Save the Storks, we want to reshape the conversation. To tell every woman facing an unexpected pregnancy that she doesn’t have to give up on her dreams or goals. She can have this child, she can be a mom, she can have a career and a baby, she can succeed in life, she CAN.
You’ll be part of something BIG long-term!
We are a decade into life-saving work, but we’re just getting started! Our 100% donor-funded efforts have resulted in over 10,000 decisions for life in the last 10 years, and with your help we’d like to save at least twice as many lives in the next 10 years IF we can get more Stork Buses on the road. So, if you’re wondering just how your monthly giving can make a difference, here’s a breakdown of the costs to build Stork Buses:
It will cost $500,000 for 10 new chassis (the body of the bus). That’s $50,000 per chassis, not including the custom-fabricated shell and bringing in all the state-of-the-art equipment that makes a Stork Bus “best in class.”
With our goal of having Stork Buses in every state and in every city, it’s going to take a LOT to reach that goal and over a long time. But the demand for Stork Buses is high, and they play a huge role in a woman’s choice for life.
You spread the message of being pro-life and pro-LOVE!
Did you know that Planned Parenthood spends around $300,000 per week, per marketing campaign? That’s so they can guarantee that their message is seen and heard not just by thousands, but millions of women across the United States. Whether that’s through ads, Google, social media, integration into popular TV shows and movies –– any and every way to get in front of a woman’s face or be at the tip of her fingers, they do.
We could have the same influence. The younger generation is greatly impacted by what they see in their social media feeds. By reaching more women online with a message of HOPE, compassion, love, and empowerment, we can help those who are facing unexpected pregnancies know that she has options, she is loved, she has a future, she can choose life.
Being a Save the Storks monthly donor means a tax write-off!
So, it goes without saying that when you donate towards a cause or organization like ours, it helps your tax payback. If you decide to become a monthly supporter or choose another way of giving, your gift is tax-deductible, and any break you can get from your taxes is a good one!
You can confidently support Save the Storks knowing that we are accredited by the leading financial accountability organizations, including ECFA and Great Nonprofits. See our audited financial reports here and our latest impact report here.
