Time to bowl for abortions!

Yes, it's that time of the year again when the Chicago Abortion Fund holds its annual bowl-a-thon! Sadly this year I can't make the actual event, but I'm still fundraising for them. I started the day out waaaaay behind in fundraising, but got a good number of donations to bring my total up to $390. So I'm only $110 from my goal of $500!

So I'm hoping that I can count of my readers here to bring me over the finish line!

How do you help do that? IT IS EASY! Simply head over to my fundraising page and click donate next to my avatar.

I got a $200 donation on my team page & $50 off page, thus the thermometer thing will always be $250 off. But who cares as long as I reach my goal of $500.

OK, Ok, you want to know why you should donate to the Chicago Abortion Fund? This nifty infographic tells the tale...

The stat that always bowls me over (see what I did there?) is that 79% of the women who call CAF for assistance are mothers. They know what bringing a baby into the world means and they know they are not in a position to do that.

I've been privileged to know some of the women who have received assistance and some have said CAF saved their lives. They were at a point of desperation and could not imagine what they would do to support a new baby plus the others they had. Failed birth control. Perhaps unable to insist on birth control. For me, I don't spend time finding out the why a woman calls CAF, but rather that she did. Because I know if she as called, she has made her decision and I want to support that.

And I thank you for joining me in helping her.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
