PEI LIFE is calling for nominations for new PEI PowerMoms!  Any woman who had or adopted a baby in 2022 can be nominated to receive a Stocking4LIFE.  We encourage and support those in crisis when we honor those who have said YES to LIFE.  A new mom says yes in so many ways!  Nominate your favorite new mom and tell us why she is the best.  We will hand deliver a Christmas stocking to her. Nominations can be sent to nominations@peilife.org  by Dec 10 and let us know how to contact her. Or see our webpage: Programs – PEI LIFE for more information. You may also call Pat at  902-894-5473. If you would like to donate to this campaign so we can reach more women, please see our webpage.
