Looking for a speaker on important life issues? Interested in visiting care homes? Please contact us and let us know so we can sign you up! Email [email protected] or call at 604-852-4623 and ask for Cynthia.
You have a strong voice, whether you know it or not. We encourage you to get involved and use it! Your witness as an informed and passionate young person conveys volumes. And remember that ultimately, people are going to remember how much you care. It’s
important to share your views, but most importantly, to treat someone with love
and compassion. One of the most powerful witnesses you can give is by being a
positive and caring person while sharing something that you believe in. This is a
positive association, and lets someone know that you truly care about them. We
need to be concerned not only with life issues overall, but implementing that in practically loving the least.
To help you explore how you can do this, we've compiled a list below of ways that you can practically get involved and make a difference for those around you.
- Shoot us a message! We’d love to help arrange a way in which you can volunteer with us, at a local crisis pregnancy center, or a nursing or care home. It’s important to practically support and advocate the value of life, giving to others at the same time, and we want to help you do that.
- Have a gift or talent that you would like to share? Your art work or musical talents can be featured in our outreach resources such as pamphlets and promotional videos.
- Inform yourself. Do some research! It’s important to be able to be confident in the information that you have. This is not only for your own sake, but for the sake of those that you talk to.
- Choose euthanasia or abortion as a current topic in school. This is a great opportunity to a) spend time researching and learning new information and b) to share what you know. The fact that you are presenting facts and opening up dialogue an be huge for many people who may not have thought about these issues before. The opportunity to become more informed and to think about these topics critically is important for anyone.
- Follow some life-affirming groups on social media. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ … you name it, we’re there (and many others are as well)! You get to receive positive messages, stay informed, learn, and you’re able to easily share this information via social media, informing others in turn.
- Go to an event. Advokate and Hope for Women have annual events such as the Dessert Concert or Walk for Life that you may attend or participate in (check our site regularly for those). By going to an event, you meet real people who care about the same things you do. You’ll learn new information, hear new ideas, and find an incredible support network. We suggest that if National Campus Life Network is ever hosting an event near you – attend! They work specifically with student groups to help them share on their campus, and train students in effective, loving dialogue.
- Look up dialogue suggestions. You know, questions that you picture someone asking; the questions that you’re afraid you won’t be able to answer clearly? The reassuring truth is that others have been asked the same questions, and have provided helpful responses. We recommend googling "Scott Klusendorf resources".
