Canada’s next federal election is scheduled to occur on October 21, 2019. It is incredibly important for pro-lifers to support pro-life candidates and to encourage fellow pro-lifers to #voteprolife as well, so that we can fill as many seats as possible with MPs willing to defend the human rights of the most vulnerable human beings.
Sadly, a lot of people who would consider themselves pro-life end up prioritizing other issues at the ballot box. We need to make sure that they put pro-life first. Lots of other issues are important—the economy, health care, the environment, etc.—but none of these issues are as important as the abortion issue, and they do not justify voting for a pro-abortion candidate when pro-life options are available.
We need to communicate this message to our friends and family members, and so we invite you to participate in the #Voteprolife Challenge.
How does it work?
- Film a short video of yourself:
a. Introducing who you are and indicating where you’re from;
b. Pledging that you will #voteprolife this upcoming election OR, if you’re ineligible to vote, asking your peers to #voteprolife;
c. Explaining why you will #voteprolife and/or why others should.
- Feel free to invite others to also participate in the #Voteprolife Challenge, either in your video or in an accompanying social media post.
- Upload your video to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and/or any other social media platform and if you can, use the hashtag #voteprolife.
Here’s an example:
While the challenge is open to pro-lifers of all ages, youth ages 29 and under who are living in Canada are eligible to win a $100 Amazon gift card for participating.
To enter the draw, follow the steps above, but be sure that you make the video publicly viewable on at least one of the following social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Instagram. Provide us the link(s) to it in this form, and fill out your contact info in the form too. Feel free to tag @clcyouthprolife and use the hashtag #voteprolife when you upload your video. Be aware that unless you indicate otherwise, we may share your video on our social media platforms.
Alternatively, you can always email your video to [email protected] and we’ll upload it directly onto social media ourselves.
So long as you fill out the Google form and we can view your video, you will be entered into a draw for a $100 Amazon gift card. The contest will close on Monday, June 24 at 11:59 pm. The winner will be emailed on Tuesday, June 25.
Refer your friends to the contest:
Please encourage your pro-life friends and family members to participate in the challenge too, either by challenging them in the video itself or accompanying description, or by personally inviting them to in a conversation or direct message.
There’s an option on the Google form to input who it was who referred you to the challenge. If you entered the draw, but someone you referred to the challenge ends up winning it, you, as their referrer, will ALSO receive a $100 Amazon gift card. So, the more people who you refer to the challenge, the greater your chances of winning too! Just make sure they put your name down on the form, or else we won’t know who referred them.
Note: If you referred someone to the challenge, but did not officially enter the draw yourself, you will be ineligible to receive the $100 Amazon gift card. CLC employees are ineligible to win, either as draw participants or as referrers.
Contact CLC Youth through social media (@clcyouthprolife), email ([email protected]), or phone (1-800-730-5358). We would be happy to respond to any questions or concerns!
