NATIONAL PRO-LIFE T-SHIRT WEEK KICKS OFF:
FUN PHOTO CONTEST GIVES iPAD 2 AS 1st PRIZE
Washington, DC — Young pro-lifers (of all ages) across the nation can have fun, change some hearts, and maybe win some great prizes just for submitting photos of themselves wearing pro-life T-shirts around town or around the house. The brainchild of American Life League (ALL), this year’s National Pro-Life T-shirt Week runs from April 12 through April 18.
“You earn points for photos of completing any one of hundreds of listed tasks while wearing any pro-life T-shirt. The more tasks completed, the higher the points,” explained Tom Mon, vice president at ALL. “This contest is the most fun I get to have all year.” The contestant who scores the most points by sending in photos of different completed tasks wins a new iPad 2. Second and third place winners will receive iPod Touches while even fourth and fifth place finishers will win iPod Shuffles.
The 250—soon to be 300—pro-life T-shirt wearing contest tasks range from the mundane (brushing your teeth) to the quite creative (“Cooking the Books” at a library) to the somewhat weird in public (like standing on a chair at a mall holding an umbrella in the air). There is something for everybody. Contestants can register as an individual or a group.
This year’s official ALL pro-life T-shirt shows a sonogram emblazoned simply “I am a Person.” It is getting a great response with thousands purchased but any pro-life T-shirt, even homemade, will qualify. However, to keep the fun photo contest fair, if you are not wearing this year’s official shirt, ALL requires the official 2011 NPLTW “I am a Person” label to be in all pictures submitted.
Cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown, American Life League is the United States oldest and largest Catholic grassroots pro-life organization. ALL is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to death. For more information, please visit https://www.all.org or call 540-659-4171.
