Stories matter. It was Charles' Dickens' "Oliver Twist" that opened England's eyes to the horror of the workhouses. It was "Uncle Tom's Cabin" that Lincoln credited with launching the Civil War. Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" that reminded a nation of the virtues of capitalism. Stories change people and culture.
Stories are also memorable. You probably couldn't tell me a single census from the book of Numbers, but even an atheist could give me a reasonably close version of "The Good Samaritan." Stories stick with us.
Stories have power. Unfortunately, in the pro-life movement we are more likely to tell about numbers and statistics than we are to use the power of story.
The Stolen Moments Campaign seeks to change that.
Last summer, I had the privilege of organizing some events and working with pro-life activists across Texas to pass an omnibus pro-life bill to save babies from abortion and ensure women safer options. I worked with a young friend of mine Andrew Koch that week on getting out media and trying to give people online a clear story of what was happening on the ground. It was then that I really realized the power of telling the truth and using social media to promote that truth.
That is also when I got a great script from Andrew that is going to be our first story in the Stolen Moments Campaign. The concept is simple.
Everyone has a story to tell. Our stories are made of a special moments throughout our lives. Stories come from both the good and bad moments. Yet, due to abortion we've lost millions of potential moments in our lives. Moments that would be part of our story. Moments that were stolen from all of us.
Help us tell those stories. Help us awaken people to what we've lost.
This crowdfundimg goal is set very low. If we don't his our goal the fee would be a lot higher. So we set the goal just for the money needed to film the project. With your help though we'll not only reach the production goal, but also our stretch goals.
How else can you help us reach our goals and make an impact?
1. Pray - If you're a praying person please join us in prayer for this project as we raise funds, but also as we produce and distribute this campaign. We'll have regular updates so you know how to pray.
2. Donate - It's a fundraiser of course so we need you to give. It can be $1 all the way to $10,000. Whatever you can manage we certainly appreciate.
3. Spread the Word - Of course it helps to share on social media like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. That is a great start, but it is the personal touch that works. If you know passionate pro-life people, groups, and conservative reporters then please send them a personal message or or give them a phone call and ask them to come here check out this project. If we all just reached out personally to three people directly then our efforts are multiplied exponentially.
