Celebrate Life

Join JB Knacker this Saturday, January 21st from 10am-5pm.  We will be toasting our mothers, fathers and all those that said yes to Life!  JB Knacker will donate 20% of all sales on this day to Birthright of Ames.  Birthright helps any girl or woman regardless of age, creed, marital or economic status, who feels distressed by an unplanned pregnancy.  Its services are free of charge. And because this Saturday falls one day from January 22nd, the tragic anniversary of Roe vs Wade, we will be celebrating Life at the shop!  Birthright's mission statement goes something like this..."It is the right of every pregnant woman to give birth and it is the right of every baby to be born."  Birthright has been a leader in this community in positive outreach to women who find themselves pregnant and scared....emotional encouragement and supportive counseling as well as tangible items such as maternity clothing, infant and toddler clothing and supplies are readily available.  I am so proud of the work these volunteers do on a daily basis and want to help support their outreach.  I hope you do too!  Update:  you helped JB Knacker to raise just over $200 for Birthright...way to go! 

The shop is looking great w/ lots of fun, new, old pieces...lace, pottery, glass, linen, wood, jewels and so much more.  Hot coffee and tea will be on as well as yummy petite cupcakes (while they last)!  And be sure to grab a pretty petite floral arrangement in honor of your mother, father or anyone in your life who had the courage to say yes to Life!
...for every woman who calls for help. Whether that call is for nothing more than an anonymous pregnancy test or for friendship and support lasting through the delivery and beyond, Birthright is there. Every woman is special and deserves to be treated as an individual.
