Two Texas Students for Life Groups Raise Over $38,000 To Help Student Mothers When we imagine fundraising efforts initiated by a student group, we typically think of a few hundred dollars to buy textbooks or baby items (an incredibly helpful endeavor, we might add). But in true Texas fashion, the Pro-Life Aggies at Texas A&M University took it a step further. Over the course of a school year, they raised over $38,000 for scholarships for 15 pregnant and parenting students on their campus. This group worked tirelessly to make a life-changing difference for these women. The key to their success was a 5K they named “Run for Their Lives.” The race was hugely lucrative, as well as heartwarming when the group ended the event by awarding the scholarships to the women in person. They also raised additional funds by speaking at their local churches and putting ads in their church bulletins. Read more here. See Cassie’s (University of Texas) below:

University of Wyoming Pro-Life Group Gets Diaper Decks on Campus The Students for Life at UW achieved a big victory this year by encouraging their school to install diaper decks in the campus bathrooms. Having these places to take care of babies on campus is just one more supportive service to have in place that conveys a message to student mothers that their needs matter. Way to go! 7. Six Denver Area Schools Began Marketing Partnerships with Local Pregnancy Centers As part of our Abortion Free Denver project, five different colleges/universities (and one high school) have entered into marketing partnerships with their local PRCs. These partnerships are a match made in heaven as they allow Students for Life groups to be the bridge between pregnancy centers and students facing unplanned pregnancies. These groups are actively making an effort to be the first place pregnant students turn to – instead of Denver’s abortion facilities. 8. Colorado University-Boulder Had a Baby Save Abbey is the VP of the Students for Life group at University of Colorado - Boulder. She is passionate about helping women in crisis and their preborn children. Her post (at right) is why we do what we do! 9. Mama Helped at The Ohio State University Students for Life at Ohio State received an email on the morning of October 24th from the mother of a student who is facing an unexpected pregnancy. The student chose life for her baby! The president of their group, Megan, helped divide up tasks to best help the mother. They worked together to get Option Line resources, called their health centers on campus to see what is offered for her, researched the policies regarding pregnancy in the dorms, reached out to their Newman Center and other religious ministries, looked up parenting support groups, and took time at their next meeting to make cards for the pregnant student!
