COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, is forcing us all indoors, off campus, and into a virtual quarantine. While many schools are moving to online classes or will be soon, Students for Life decided to go ahead and create a plan for the Pro-Life Generation to go 100% digital.
So, while you are dealing with handling online classes and figuring out where to order toilet paper and other supplies online, we’ve created a plan for how you can take advantage of all that time you’ll now be spending on your laptop and continue to be a voice for Life.

6) Write Messages of THANKS
Saying “thank you” goes a long way!

Simply go here to find out who your national and state elected officials are, check out their pro-life score card by clicking here, and then send them a quick message of appreciation through Facebook, Twitter, or even by making a phone call to their office. HINT: All of their contact info is on the same site!
7) Update Your Materials
Take this opportunity to sit down and update your Students for Life group’s materials. Maybe you have outdated group flyers, or you have an idea for a trendy re-design that you want to try. Either way, you’ve got nothing but time and a computer! Check out Students for Life HQ for inspiration.
8) Promote an Online Diaper Drive
Did you know you could host a diaper drive without stepping out your door?! That’s right, thanks to the National Diaper Bank Network you can connect with a diaper bank in your area and donate through Amazon. Click HERE for a list of more than 200 community-based diaper banks. On each page, you’ll find a link to an Amazon wish list where you can give online donations. Advertise the link in a fun way on your social media, GroupMe, or even by calling or e–mailing your family members and asking for donations. This is a great opportunity catch up with friends and family; why not also get them involved in the cause you are so passionate about and help moms in need!
Plus, reach out to your town’s pregnancy resource centers (and maternity homes) and ask if they have any specific needs during this time. The virus is affecting every organization differently and you never know what they might be in need of.
Bottomline: The Pro-Life Generation may be in quarantine for the next several weeks, but we will never stop in our mission to make abortion unthinkable and illegal!
