Red Envelope Day – and beyond

Posted on: April 4, 2009

There was a push to send empty red envelopes to the White House on March 31, to remind President Obama of the individuals whose lives were empty because they were killed in the womb. The tally of envelopes from people who signed up at The Red Envelope Project was 1,688,122! Baptist Press has more (they missed the tally, though, since they got their figures from Red Envelope Day, which seems to be one of several websites that sprang up independently, to rally support for the overall project).

I didn’t sign up anywhere, so my efforts aren’t in any tallies (unless the White House is keeping track). I did send a red envelope before March 31, and I have three more to send, at intervals. I intend to buy more envelopes, and to send them at intervals. I don’t want this to be a message that goes away after an initial push.

Please note: The Red Envelope Project has had to discontinue the use of that name. An organizer explains, at a new website he’s setting up:

Due to a trademark issue the Red Envelope Project website has been shut down. The trademark owners were generous enough to allow us to keep the site up until after the March 31st date but unfortunately it had to stop there. The final rough tally of envelopes sent or pledged was OVER 1.5 MILLION!!! Praise God for the number of envelopes flooding Washington! Keep up the prayers, and check back to see how things are moving on from the Red Envelope Project!

I really loved this Red Envelope Project! And like you, I will continue to send throughout the year. I think of not just the White House/Obama who received the envelopes but also of every single person along the way. You never know who was moved by the message… awesome!
