A great way to bless a birth mom who’s created an adoption plan for her child is by donating to a non-profit organization, such as the Lifetime Foundation. Learn about the current donation needs of the Lifetime Foundation and how you can help today!
Right now, the Lifetime Foundation needs donations of colored pencils as well as new, empty journals to send to birth mothers. The colored pencils are used with a coloring book created specifically for women making an adoption plan. It’s filled with inspirational and encouraging messages to help support women as they travel down the difficult path of adoption for their child.
Writing in a journal can be very beneficial to birth mothers, as it lets them jot their thoughts down as they go through what can be a painful journey. It’s therapeutic and helpful for them to be able to take the time to reflect on their feelings during this journey. Some birth moms also use the journal to write a note to their baby on why they chose adoption. Other birth moms find that writing in a journal is helpful for the healing process after placement.
Are you able to donate a journal and/or colored pencils? You can mail your donations to the Lifetime Foundation, or you may donate online via PayPal. Items or funds donated are tax deductible! You can mail journals to:
400 Idaho-Maryland Road, Suite B
Grass Valley, CA 95945
We’d love it if you’d share this need with your family members, friends, and church members! If you mail the Lifetime Foundation items, please make sure to include a note or mark the return address package clearly, so they know who sent it. If needed, Lifetime Foundation will supply you with a receipt for tax purposes.
