March for Life @ Washington, DC
Jan 19 all-day

March for Life in DCOn January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court passed the Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton decisions that legalized abortion-on-demand through all nine months of pregnancy in all fifty states.  The peaceful demonstration on this somber anniversary every year since 1973 is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time.  The March for Life in Washington, DC, began as a small demonstration and rapidly grew into the largest prolife event in the world.

Grand Rapids Right to Life will be hosting bus trips to Washington, DC, for the 45th annual March for Life.

Along with the March for Life on January 19, there are opportunities to also attend the Students for Life Conference, the March for Life Youth Rally, Mass at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Youth Mass and Rally at the Verizon Center, and the Rose Dinner.

New this year … attendees are able to design a trip that fits their schedule and budget!

Coins for Kids
Dec 31 all-day

Baby BottleCoins for Kids is a fundraiser for Grand Rapids Right to Life and local pregnancy centers.

Churches and organizations in the Grand Rapids area are encouraged to choose one month to host a baby bottle drive.

Profits benefit Grand Rapids Right to Life and local agencies that provide material support to women and families facing unplanned pregnancies.

It’s easy to host a Coins for Kids baby bottle drive!

Step 1:
Select a month that your church or school would like to participate and call Grand Rapids Right to Life.

Step 2:
Spread the word by putting the dates for the baby bottle drive in your bulletin or newsletter and by making announcements.

Step 3:
Request as many bottles as you need.  We suggest one bottle per family.

Step 4:
Spend the month filling those bottles with your spare change. 

Step 5:
Grand Rapids Right to Life will pick up the bottles at the end of the month and bring them to the bank to get counted.

Join us in this wonderfully easy and tangible way that you can support the prolife efforts of Grand Rapids Right to Life and the work of local pregnancy centers.
