Baby Bottle Boomerang
Our Baby Bottle Boomerang is a yearly fundraising campaign. BBB allows local churches, bible studies, Christian schools, homeschool groups, and other groups the opportunity to come alongside us and provide hope and resources for families in our community. It's a simple way to get our community involved in saving lives and advancing the gospel.
You pick! Some churches start in January with Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Others choose Mother’s and Father’s Day, a back-to-school campaign, or a Valentine's Campaign. You can pick anytime between January and June.
1. Empty baby bottles are distributed to churches and groups throughout the month of your choice (January - June).
2. You distribute them to the people in your church or group. Bottles can be filled with change, cash, and even checks! The churches promote this through their social media, the pulpit and within the groups among the congregation.
3. Several weeks later, bottles are returned on an announced date. (You determine the date the bottles are to be returned.)
4. You make arrangements to return the bottles to Heartbeats (that’s the boomerang!) where we process them or coordinate arrangements for us to pick up the bottles from you.
We're in, what next??
Please contact Jessica Quinn by phone at 704.461.3173 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know when you would to start your BBB campaign. A BBB campaign can be held any time of year.
Our prayer is that your congregation or organization will become informed about the sanctity of life and feel they are making an impact on the lives of the people we serve thanks to their generosity. HOPE
ORIGINS: On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. (January 22, 1973, was the day the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.) Churches around the United States use the day to celebrate God's gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit themselves to protecting human life at every stage.
UPCOMING DATE: Churches continue to recognize the third Sunday in January as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. In 2024, the date will be January 21.
Some Churches run the Baby Bottle Boomerang for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. There is not a set time for the BBB, make it fit your groups schedule!
