The Red Envelope Project

I’m not a fan. According to this World Net Daily article around 2.25 million red envelopes were received by the White House.

How many of them were seen by President Obama? Probably close to zero.

How much money was spent mailing empty red envelopes to a president who will likely never see more than a single one of them?

2,250,000 x .43 (for a stamp) = $967,500

Nearly a million dollars, not to mention the cost of buying red envelopes, and what did it accomplish?

Prolifers should really be looking for a more positive way of spending their money to support prolife causes than the Red Envelope Project.

Instead of buying and mailing red envelopes, let's encourage prolifers to make small donations to a prolife charity of their choice.
