Will you help us promote life in Calcasieu Parish? Please donate to our billboard campaign and help us showcase the beauty of life to those driving around and through Calcasieu Parish!
Mary Guzzino Wilkinson, a resident of Iowa, LA, is spearheading this campaign with Louisiana Right to Life. Here is what she had to say:
After asking God what could be done to support the preborn child in the womb, God directed me with the thought, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” I started with banners, but as I was driving down the interstate, God again directed me to ʻGo biggerʼ to billboards. Think of the MILLIONS of times the message will be viewed in a year! Think of the conversations about ʻLIFEʼ in the womb that will occur due to the billboard images. I know beyond any doubt this is what God wants from us at this time.
Several billboards have been put in place already. The first goal achieved is on I-10 facing east (2.2 miles west of Iowa exit), and this board will run a full year. A digital at Nelson / Sale is running until June 16. After that another digital starts at Nelson / L’auberge Blvd. This will remain through Jan. 3, 2022. As money is raised, other billboard locations will be added in the Lake Charles area.
The billboards are having an impact, as several groups have already begun placing billboards in other areas of the parish and state.
Any donation amount is appreciated. Contributions can be set up monthly or for a one-time donation. All donations are tax deductible and will be used on pro-life ads in Calcasieu Parish.
You can also donate by mailing a check to Louisiana Right to Life, 200 Robert E Lee Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70124. Please put “Calcasieu Billboards” on the memo line.
