For the past two years, I've spent part of my spring raising money for Pro-Choice Resources, a righteous local non-profit that works every day to improve access to a full spectrum of reproductive health services by providing education, outreach, advocacy, and financial assistance under one roof. It's not a clinic or a lobbying organization, and receives no United Way or government funding. So each spring, PCR throws a Bowl-A-Thon at the Bryant Lake Bowl to help raise money to cover their programs and operating costs.
I'm only a fair-to-middling bowler, but fortunately that doesn't really matter for this fundraiser, since it's based on flat donations. And every little bit helps, from the $5 that will buy condoms to be distributed to at-risk youth to the $100 that will buy gas for reproductive health educators for a month. If you click the bowling button at right, you'll go right to my secure donation page, and help to make a difference in the lives of women and youth who need the advocacy and empowerment PCR provides.
Don't worry--the bowling button will stay up until the event on April 24th, and I'll keep bugging you about donating, in case you forget.
