Donating and Support
We often host Amazon or Walmart registries on behalf of our clients to ensure they have the necessities for their children. This gives our donors the unique opportunity to purchase items that are shipped directly to the family in need. When you choose to give through a registry you get to choose the item so you know what your money is going toward (diapers, crib, etc). You can find our latest registry HERE. You can also help further our mission by sharing our content on social media, shopping our merch HERE, and/or praying for our organization.
To purchase an item at full cost, visit the registry, add the item to your cart, and choose the “gift address” at the checkout. This ensures your item ships directly to the client! More expensive items have an option to contribute money toward that item through group gifting. Find our latest registry HERE.
Despite 100% of the funds going back into the organization, Human Defense Initiative is not a 501(c)3 so donations are not tax-deductible. If you are looking for a way to give to the pro-life movement that is tax-deductible we recommend donating to your local pregnancy center.
