As journalists fighting for the culture of life and family, LifeSite has the privilege of meeting and engaging with some of the most important people in the world -- leaders in the life-and- family movements.

I’m talking about the folks on the ground, in the trenches, who day after day have made it their mission to engage the culture – whose individual missions are absolutely vital to our continued defense of life, family, faith and culture.

Getting to know them, telling their stories, and assisting in their life-saving mission is our task, which can only be done with your help.

LifeSite exists for this very reason: to provide support to the brave men and women who go into the trenches every day for life and family.

These are the Mother Teresas of our day, serving the poorest of the poor and the most helpless in hidden and thankless ways. Their inspiring stories need to be told, their victories celebrated and their sorrows shared.

None of that can happen without you. We all collaborate in these efforts.  

When you give generously to support LifeSite, you help us to share their heroic initiatives globally, and to come to their defense when they come under attack: as they so often sadly do in our anti-life culture.

Your sacrificial donations allow millions to be touched by their powerful stories!

It is an honor to serve these incredible people by providing them with the information, resources and publicity needed for the success of their work.

LifeSite exists for this very reason: to provide support to the brave men and women who go into the trenches every day for life and family.

 

Right now, we need your help. With only 5 days to go, we have received just 10% of the 5,000 donations needed for our Summer Campaign.

A generous family has offered us an additional $50,000 this campaign if we can reach 5,000 donations by Friday! Make your support go further with a donation today!

Let me give you one example of how your donation supports the unsung heroes of the life-and-family movements:

Mary Wagner.  

Mary is an awesome, saintly young lady who has taken it upon herself to be present to women in crisis pregnancies, even inside those abortion mills where the message of life is forbidden.

Mary has entered those very halls of death to spread the message of love, to provide help and care with a gentleness and compassion that defies description.

Yet, this innocent and gentle lamb has had to have the courage of a lion to face the hostility of abortion centre employees and police as she is repeatedly dragged away to prison.

Not one single news agency on the planet has covered Mary’s story as has LifeSite.

 

Mainstream media and other pro-life sites have used our coverage, but we were the originals, getting reporter Tony Gosgnach out to her court hearings, standing at the jail where she was imprisoned to interview cardinals and bishops as they went to visit her, speaking with her directly and transmitting her messages clearly for all the world to see.

She is a real hero. She is an inspiration. And her story is told via the power and reach of our website thanks to your financial support.

Our journalism has to get the facts right and uncover key information left out by the mainstream media – but we must also motivate and activate cultural change.

We are only able to achieve this mission because of the generous support of readers just like you.

Your donation today not only supports the #1 life-and-family news agency on the internet, you also help to provide additional support to thousands of organizations on the ground, and their leaders, who use LifeSite as their go-to resource.

Ask those leaders yourselves about LifeSite, they will tell you.

We need your support to carry on this work, and we need it now.

We will continue to pour our hearts and souls into this work because we know it is what God wants of us.

All we ask is that you search your heart and give to support LifeSite with whatever God would have you give.
