We’re so thankful to a group of students from Acts 2 College of Mission and Evangelisation in Perth, Western Australia, who raised $580 for the work of Emily’s Voice.
The students, aged 17-25, held a sausage sizzle and raffle at a local Catholic parish on Sunday, April 30. Student Matt Woodford said the amount raised exceeded their expectations.
“We were quite overwhelmed with the donations coming forward. People really responded to the cause. We were thinking we might just get $100 or $200,” he said.
The students are passionate about the cause of life and have been involved in the community, running prayer vigils outside local abortion clinics, making information available to women facing unplanned pregnancy, and also attending rallies like the one outside parliament house in Perth yesterday.
“We hosted a screening of Hush and after what we saw, and how deep it goes into exposing the truth of what really happens, we think it’s something that really needs to be out there. We want people to be more informed about the truth, and we see an amazing momentum coming from Emily’s Voice,” Matt said.
The students said the fundraiser was an example of how people can make a difference by staying informed and being prepared to put action to convictions.
Great work guys! Our sincere thanks for your support of life and love through Emily’s Voice. The money raised will go to our next WA media campaign, scheduled for August.
