TORONTO, December 15, 2003 ( – Alliance for Life Ontario is gearing up for a huge fund-raising initiative in 2004. It is the goal of the educational pro-life movement in Ontario, together with faith communities, individuals, groups and businesses, to be on air with pro-life advertisements at the earliest November 2004 and latest by February 2005.

Jakki Jeffs of Alliance for Life told LifeSite, “This 2004/05 campaign is the largest ever planned in Ontario to date and we are hopeful to raise the funds which will enable us to reach every community across our province with a pro-life message of love and hope.”

The group aims to have the ad aired in Ontario at least 30 times in three months which requires upwards of $750,000. With $100,000 in the bank and in pledges, the campaign has some hard work ahead.

“However”, Jeffs said, “2003 has been a year of preparation for our 2004 fund-raising efforts and 70,000 campaign brochures will be distributed throughout parishes in the Diocese of Hamilton at the end of January 2004.” The group is also negotiating similar projects in other Roman Catholic Dioceses and with other faith denominations.

Alliance for Life has plans for several Gala Dinners throughout Ontario in 2004 as well as the brochure distribution and the door to door fund-raising.
