On September 28th, Life Teen asked its over 1100 parishes to join together in the first ‘Global Life Night.’ The night, entitled ‘Give it Away Now!’ was an effort to gather over 50,000 pounds of clothing for the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Parishes from all over the country responded, gathering clothes and having donation drives…. and the response has been overwhelming! After the first two days of reporting, the goal of 50,000 pounds had already been smashed – there were over 150,000 lbs of donations! Think about that… a hundred and fifty thousand pounds. That’s almost the weight of nine African Elephants – the heaviest animal on Earth!
We’re amazed and thankful at the generosity of our parishes, and we’re going to be adding a scale to lifeteen.com and ym.lifeteen.com to let you know how the weigh-ins are going. Also, check back here for an updated list of who brought in the most clothes!
God Bless You,
