05 Jul 2016 Memorial Being Planned for Canada’s Unborn
MyCanada is working with supporters to install a national monument to Canada’s unborn children. The bronze sculpture, created by Canadian-born artist Timothy Schmaltz, features an angel weeping over an empty crib. Titled “I Knew You in the Womb”, this will be a beautiful testimony to the value of the unborn. The organization hopes it “will also be a place for Canadians to pray, mourn and pay their respects to the deceased unborn.”
A $10,000 deposit was needed by July 1st, and that need was met and exceeded, bringing this dream closer to a reality! A significant amount more is still needed to complete the project, so we share this with you today in case any of you would also like to be financially involved in making this happen, and every small amount helps. MyCanada is an organization we have great respect for, and all the financial details (where the money goes and how it is collected) along with their contact information is detailed in their information below:
