Sponsor a Woman in Prison for Mother's Day
UPDATE AS OF June 16, 2022: Right after we found out we would have 600 incarcerated women at our May Mother’s Day events in Texas, a convict escaped from the men’s prison in Gatesville, and two of our events were cancelled. At that time, we were 75% toward reaching our goal of providing 600 inmates with gifts. But we still needed 200 more sponsorships to reach our goal.
This gives us more time to raise all that we need to reach the rest of the inmates. Our events are rescheduled for September 11-12, 2022. So we are keeping sponsorships open–believing this will give us the time we need to receive 100% support for these women.
So please help us reach 200 MORE women with the Gospel!
Your gift will provide each incarcerated woman with a 365-day Devotional book, “The Invitation,” a set of Jennifer’s Identity Poetry for Women, and an incredible event hosted by Prison Fellowship, where Jennifer will teach them their identity in Christ.
These women are in our own back yard.
82% of women in prison have experienced domestic violence or dating abuse.
48% grew up watching their mothers be abused, and an equal number believe their crime or conviction was related to the abuse they experienced.
57.7% of them were sexually abused as children.
49% of them were physically abused as children.
64% of them are incarcerated for nonviolent offenses.
81% of women in prison are MOTHERS.
Most women in prison feel humiliated and unlovable. Separated from their children and neglected physically and emotionally, they need to know their value.
On March 19, we partnered with Prison Fellowship and The Goodness Project to put on a three-hour event for incarcerated women in San Saba, Texas. Due to the generosity of people like you, we gave EACH WOMAN a devotional book and skin care kit, and the impact was incredible!
On April 27th, we went to two prisons in Nebraska for Mother’s Day Events – where we taught them their identity in Christ and followed up by sending gift packages for Mother’s Day.
On September 11-12, we are patterning with Prison Fellowship to speak at three more events in prisons in Gatesville, Texas–and we really need your support to given them all Mother’s Day gifts!
With your donation, each woman will receive:
The Invitation Women’s Devotional (valued at $25; this daily devotional will give them stories of hope and courage)
I AM A WOMAN, I AM MOTHER, I AM A WIFE, I AM SISTER, AND I AM A FRIEND POETRY SET (valued at $25)
You Can Help Spread the Word on Social Media!
Feel free to use the images below to help us reach more women in prison.
These women are valuable. They are daughters, mothers, wives, sisters, and friends.
Help us teach them their worth to Jesus Christ.
Please sponsor as many women as you can!
One sponsorship gives a woman a devotional, a poetry set, and a one-day event she will never forget!
Our goal is to come with gifts for EVERY WOMAN.
We are honored to partner with you to share a message of hope and transformation to undervalued women. Together, we will teach them how loved valued they are to God, their families, and communities.
“Then the King will say … ‘Come you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink … I was in prison and you came to visit me …. The King will reply, ’Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’” (Matthew 25:34-40).
