Dear Marriage Supporter,
Christmas is one of my favorite times of year. It's a time of family and celebration. And it's a time of reflection — looking back at the past year and looking forward to the new.
Recently, reflecting on the story of the birth of Christ, I realized something...
When Jesus came into the world, it was with nothing. No money. They had to move to a new city. His father, Joseph, had to start a new business. They didn't even have a home to stay in as he came into our world.
But the one thing God did give him — seemingly the one thing God thought His only begotten Son could NOT do without — was a loving mother and father to care for and protect Him.
It underscores the foundational importance of the mission that NOM has undertaken – to defend marriage and work to ensure that every child in our society, as much as it is possible, enjoys the love of his mother and father.
We are winding down our year-end, $200,000 matching gift campaign. To date we have raised almost $60,000 toward our goal.
If you haven't yet made a gift that will be matched dollar-for-dollar, please prayerfully consider making a generous contribution of $35, $50, $100, $500, or even a major gift of $1,000 or more to help NOM close the year on firm financial footing so we can provide marriage with the best defense possible in this pivotal coming year.
We tend to think of Christ magically moving from an infant to an adult, with only scant glimpses of him as a teen. But the reality is that in assuming the human form, Jesus experienced the unique contributions of a father and a mother in his life. For years, Jesus learned how to live, act, feel, work, care and love by absorbing the unique gifts of his father and his mother, who represent the two halves of humanity.
The Holy Family is the perfect example for the human family — a man and a woman coming together in love for each other, and to provide the ideal environment for any children born of their union. That is what marriage is, and the story of Christmas perfectly models it for us.
This is why marriage is worth fighting for. So, please, even if you have already made a gift recently to support this cause, kindly consider giving again, knowing that your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous donor.
And, whether you have given or not, please consider asking friends and family to contribute to this campaign using the buttons below, investing in the best possible Christmas gift — that of fighting for a better future for our children and grandchildren by trying to reestablish a strong marriage culture in America.
