Walk for Life

I'm participating in the Walk for Life this Saturday, in which participants may choose a local pro-life charity for which to raise funds. My chosen recipient is Bridge to Life. I've been to Bridge to Life and witnessed firsthand the vital work Eleanor Ruder and her volunteers do to provide for mothers in need of clothing and other necessities for their children.

If you would like to donate to Bridge to Life on the occasion of Walk for Life, click on the donation link near the top of their donation page, or mail a check to The Bridge to Life Inc., 129-20 A 18th Ave, College Point, NY 11356.

Among the other local organizations benefiting from Walk for Life are the Brooklyn chapter of Helpers of God's Precious Infants, a group that prays the rosary and sings hymns outside abortion clinics. The Helpers' Web site contains beautiful and moving video interviews with members of the group.

Former NYPD Officer Steven McDonald is a devoted member of the Helpers — read why.
