As we grow towards being able to offer a more expansive programs to help Islanders choose LIFE as well as meet the needs of new moms on PEI, we continue to ask ourselves: What can we do now?
Our Stockings4LIFE program started as an initiative to bring joy in the Covid-year 2020. It was such a difficult year for so many and, in particular, for new moms. We believe women who say YES to LIFE deserve our thanks. A new mom has to choose LIFE in so many ways and we all richer for the LIFE of each child. When a mom says YES to LIFE, we all win!
We feel every new mom needs a thank you for her act of love and LIFE, so we decided to welcome these new little Islanders and thank their wonderful moms by honouring them with a Christmas Stocking4LIFE!
Just before Christmas, our Team4LIFE travels across PEI hand-delivering Christmas stockings to new moms and thanking them for their gift of LIFE to PEI. The moms are nominated by friends and/or family, and it brings great joy and love to many in PEI.
Once again, we are calling for nominations for new PEI PowerMoms! Do you know someone who had a baby in 2022? Send us an email, or fill out the form below before Dec 10, 2022 and we will put her name on the list to receive a Christmas Stocking4LIFE! Let us know why you think she is a PEI PowerMom and how to contact you and her. You can reach us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 902-894-5473 for more information.
In honour of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day we decided to ask for nominations for the best PEI Powermoms and the best PEI LIFE Superdads! We had several nominations and we were able to choose one mom on Mother’s Day and one dad on Father’s Day.
Our PEI Powermom received a Food basket in the value of $250 to feed and share with her family and friends. The old adage that if you give a woman a house, she will make a home rings true that when you give a woman food, she will make a meal -providing love and life for her table! We received nominations for grandmothers, moms of many and moms of one, young and old! It was an absolute delight to honour this year’s winner, Jacquelyn, a PEI mom of five and three grandbabies with this basket made possible by a generous donor. Each of the nominees received a beautiful certificate of appreciation from PEI LIFE for their gift of continued LIFE on PEI!
Our PEI LIFE Superdad was chosen from a strong list of Superdad candidates! These men are simply great! Granddads, dads, husbands, step-dads and all round superior fathers! Our winner Tim received 2 T-bone steaks donated by KJL Meats, 2 bottles of BBQ sauce and a PEI LIFE Superdad apron! All PEI LIFE Superdad candidates received a certificate of appreciation but in the end, guys, there can only be one! 😉
Watch for our call for nominations next year to send in the name of your favorite PEI Powermom or PEI LIFE Superdad! There are so many great ones out there!
