Hit My Mother-in-Law’s Tip Jar?

Posted on | June 10, 2021 | Comments Off on Hit My Mother-in-Law’s Tip Jar?

Of all the tip-jar rattles I’ve ever done, this is the most special: My wife’s mother, now 80 and having recently undergone knee replacement surgery, will be doing a 5K Saturday — the Walk for Life to benefit Richland Pregnancy Services, a pro-life ministry in Mansfield, Ohio.


My mother-in-law is a very special woman, the mother of six children, she also adopted one of her nieces, and now has 24 grandchildren, as well as a growing number of great-grandchildren.


In addition to being the honored matron of her own family, my mother-in-law is also the bulwark of the Galion Seventh-Day Adventist Church, in whose behalf she will be undertaking Saturday’s 5K. Let me inform you a bit about the cause she’s raising money for:

The Walk for Life is a family-friendly event that supports Richland Pregnancy Services in offering free pregnancy testing, limited ultrasound, STD testing, abstinence education, parenting classes, mentoring, material support and more. . . .
Richland Pregnancy Services aims to raise $20,000 at this year’s Walk for Life.
Richland Pregnancy Services is a faith based 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

As of midnight, my mother-in-law had nearly reached her original goal of raising $400, but is $400 really enough for such a worthy cause? No, we can exceed that many times over because I know our readers are pro-life and what better way than to do something that will directly benefit young mothers in the heartland state of Ohio? Richland Pregnancy Services really does a lot to help these families — when they say “material support,” they mean it — which is why my mother-in-law with her surgically-rehabbed knees is going to be walking more than three miles to raise money for them. And I think you all know that the Five Most Important Words in the English Language apply.


Thanks in advance, on behalf of the babies whose lives you can save.
